WASHINGTON United States of America (Xinhua) -- People protest against the new travel restrictions near the White House in Washington D.C., the United States, on Oct. 18, 2017. U.S. President Donald Trump on Sept. 24 expanded a travel ban to include visitors from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) in East Asia, Venezuela in Latin America and Chad in central Africa. Meanwhile, Trump kept the controversial travel ban which was set to expire on Sept. 24 on five of six countries, namely Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, and lifted restrictions on Sudan. The new travel restrictions are expected to take effect on Oct. 18 and will be indefinite, according to president’s proclamation, which the White House said has the same force as an executive order.
