WH: Green card holders no longer subject to EO


From Politico:
President Donald Trump’s administration is reinterpreting its travel ban for residents of certain countries to now exempt legal permanent residents of the United States. 
White House Counsel Don McGahn issued “authoritative guidance” on Wednesday clarifying that key parts of Trump’s controversial executive order, which is aimed at citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries, will no longer cover green card holders, White House press secretary Sean Spicer announced Wednesday afternoon. … 
McGahn’s memo to the State, Homeland Security and Justice Departments acknowledges that the wording of the order Trump signed Friday was ambiguous. 
“I understand that there has been reasonable uncertainty about whether those provisions apply to lawful permanent residents of the United States. Accordingly, to remove any confusion, I now clarify that Sections 3(c) and 3(e) do not apply to such individuals,” McGahn wrote. “Please immediately convey this interpretive guidance to all individuals responsible for the administration and implementation of the Executive Order.”
