Amanda Frost: Trump's travel order runs from 'Muslim ban' past, but it can't hide


In this op/ed for The Hill, Amanda Frost writes that

"On Monday, the Trump administration issued a revised version of its Jan. 27 Executive Order barring entry of all refugees and citizens from six predominantly-Muslim countries, hoping to fix the flaws that led multiple courts to strike down the original version.  But sometimes the genie can’t be forced back into the bottle.  

Although scaled back and sanitized, the new Executive Order continues to target citizens from predominantly-Muslim countries in a thinly-veiled effort to implement the “Muslim ban” that Trump promised while campaigning for president, in violation of the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause."
