The Trump administration has issued a new travel ban, one which incorporates recommendations made by public interest law professor John Banzhaf after the first so-called Muslim ban was rejected by the courts

At that time Banzhaf suggested that the second traffic ban should definitely include non-Muslim countries, and specifically suggested adding North Korea. On February 10th, Banzhaf wrote: “the new executive order should add North Korea, and perhaps even one or two more non-Muslim countries, to the list to further undercut any argument that the order is motivated by animus based upon religion. There’s clear precedent, since the TSA mandated secondary searches for all passengers from twelve named countries, with all but two Communist nations having a majority Muslim population.”
