And it added new restrictions or additional vetting of four new countries found not to be in compliant with USA vetting procedures - Chad, Iraq, North Korea and Venezuela.
President Donald Trump signed a proclamation on Sunday laying out travel restrictions for eight countries, including five that were subject to the previous travel ban, marking the latest chapter in the administration's efforts to limit entry to the US for certain foreign nationals.
The high court struck a compromise in June, when it let part of the travel ban take effect. It's a result of a review after Trump's original travel ban was challeneged in the USA court.
"North Korea does not cooperate with the United States government in any respect and fails to satisfy all information-sharing requirements", the statement said.
President Donald Trump is expected to announce new restrictions on travel to the United States as his ban on visitors from six Muslim-majority countries expires on Sunday, 90 days after it went into effect. Restrictions may be removed from countries if they meet a new set of minimum standards, according to the New York Times. "President Trump's original sin of targeting Muslims can not be cured by throwing other countries onto his enemies list".
The Trump administration on Sunday night asked the high court to considering hearing new briefing on the case before the oral argument to address "the effects of the proclamation on the issues now pending before the court in these cases". Administration officials said the new ban is based on a review of which countries are complying with U.S requests for information on which visitors pose potential terrorist threats.
And the inclusion of North Korea and Venezuela appears to be mostly symbolic.
Last week, Trump hinted he was prepared to extend and expand the ban. The decision cited Trump's campaign statements in concluding that the order was motivated by anti-Muslim bias.
The Supreme Court will hear arguments on October 10 on whether the current ban discriminates against Muslims in violation of the U.S. Constitution, as lower courts previously ruled.
Critics have accused the Republican president of discriminating against Muslims in violation of constitutional guarantees of religious liberty and equal protection under the law, breaking existing US immigration law and stoking religious hatred.
Trump's administration has said the ban is critical to national security, while opponents have argued it violates the U.S. Constitution's religious protections. The case now rests in the hands of the Supreme Court.
