Johnathan Smith, legal director of the advocacy group Muslim Advocates, also slammed the measure as the "same Muslim ban" and an attempt "to undermine our Constitution".

Most citizens of Chad, Libya and Yemen will be blocked from emigrating to or visiting the United States because the countries do not have the technical capability to identify and screen their travelers, and in many cases have terrorist networks in their countries, officials said.

The new travel ban imposes a set of restrictions, ranging from an indefinite ban on visas for citizens of countries like Syria to a suspension of non-immigrant visas for Venezuela citizens.
