The Girl Guides of Canada, the country's equivalent of the Girl Scouts, said in a Tuesday, March 14 statement it will not approve any new travel to the U.S. "And we wanted to make sure we could extend that to all aspects of our organization - which includes girls that are traveling".

On its website, Girl Guides calls the decision "very difficult" but says it "reflects [a] commitment to inclusivity and equal opportunities for all girls and women".

The Canadian Girl Guides Association was founded in 1912.

She said that trips are planned months in advance and it would be disappointing if anyone got to the border and was turned away.

We hope that our members whose travel plans have changed will explore the wide range of alternative destinations - including the opportunity to experience a Canadian adventure during our country's 150th birthday.

Guides spokeswoman Sarah Kiriliuks told the Associated Press that she is unaware of any members being turned away by USA officials, but "we just want to make sure that no girl gets left behind".

"We can't leave a girl behind", explained the organisation's national manager of marketing and communication Sarah Kiriliuk.

The group stated that they're not approving trips of over or under 72-hours, connecting flights through the USA, and a planned summer trip to California is being relocated.

As many as 700 to 800 girls travel overseas with the program each year, but the organization says it has no intention of turning inwards.

A nationally sponsored trip to a California camp that was scheduled for this summer is being relocated. It also suspends admission of refugees for 120 days. This ban takes effect on Thursday.

The revised ban made adjustments to other sections of the original order, including allowances for those who already have visas.

Trump's first travel ban temporarily prohibited people from seven Muslim-majority countries from coming to the U.S. It was subsequently halted by the courts, prompting the president to issue a second executive order.
