2017-06-29

WASHINGTON (AP) — A scaled-back version of President Donald Trump’s travel ban takes effect Thursday evening, stripped of provisions that brought protests and chaos at airports worldwide in January yet still likely to generate a new round of court fights. The new rules, the product of months of legal wrangling, aren’t so much an outright ban as a tightening of already-tough visa policies affecting citizens from six Muslim-majority countries.

Customs and Border Protection spokesman Dan Hetlage said his agency expected “business as usual at our ports of entry.”

Since Trump’s inauguration, Canadian politicians and officials have made almost 160 trips, meeting 14 cabinet members, almost 200 lawmakers and more than 40...
