The American Civil Liberties Union and others are already lining up to challenge President Donald Trump's revised ban on refugees and travelers from six mainly Muslim countries.The new order issued Monday suspends U.S. entry for all refugees for 120 days, and the issuing of new visas for nationals of Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Sudan for 90 days.Although similar to the first travel ban, it has been changed in significant ways to pass muster with the courts.It also drops Iraq from the list of countries targeted by the visa ban.If filed on Wednesday, it likely will be the first challenge to the tweaked ban.Camille Mackler, director of legal initiatives at the New York Immigration Coalition, called Trump's new order a "backdoor Muslim ban".The next wave of legal challenges will have to directly confront the question of whether the immigration order constitutes a Muslim ban, an issue that the courts have so far set aside.Critics had said the preference benefiting Christians underscored that the ban was directed at Muslims.
