The travel ban was primarily on countries that had very weak to no government. Yemen for example is just a complete war zone. There is very little we can do to "vet" refugees coming from there. I love it when Dems try to say that we vet our refugees thoroughly but negate to mention that it's completely dependent on the record keeping and tracking of foreign governments.... If the Guinness Book of world records refuses to trust these third world countries records (for say the old age record), wtf makes you think we can determine who has terrorist ties?
