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.

The Department of Homeland Security has recommended the president go ahead with more targeted restrictions on foreign nationals from countries that the agency says refuse to share sufficient information with the U.S. or haven't taken necessary security precautions.

That could range from a complete ban to more stringent screening measures for citizens of countries that haven't complied with new U.S. benchmarks.

Officials haven't said which countries or how many the new measures might affect.
