President Donald Trump's executive order banning travelers from six majority-Muslim countries is set to go into partial effect today after the Supreme Court on Monday lifted some parts of the order that had been blocked by lower courts.
- "The Trump administration has set new criteria for visa applicants from six mainly Muslim nations and all refugees that require a 'close' family or business tie to the United States…. The new guidelines sent to U.S. embassies and consulates on Wednesday say that applicants from the six countries must prove a relationship with a parent, spouse, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling in the U.S."
- President Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in are scheduled to meet today.
- Iraqi forces have retaken control of the mosque in Mosul from ISIS.
- "U.S. officials on Wednesday announced enhanced security and screening measures for all commercial flights to the United States but backed away from a proposal to expand a ban on laptops and other electronic devices—unless airlines and airports refuse to comply with the new rules."
