For the past eight years, thousands of conservative activists have descended on Washington each spring with dreams of putting a Republican in the White House. This year, they’re learning reality can be complicated.

U.S. President Donald Trump signed a revised version of a controversial travel ban on Monday. It imposes a 90-day ban on new visas for citizens from six Muslim-majority countries and suspends the refugee program for 120 days.

The White House dropped Iraq from the original list and announced Syrians are no longer subject to an indefinite ban from the United States.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson described the new measure as vital to strengthening U.S. security.

The travel ban was a signature issue during Trump’s election campaign and in his first days in office. But another has been his proposed wall between the Southern U.S. and Mexico.

Trump made the assertion on Saturday in a series of tweets. U.S. FBI Director James Comey has asked the Justice Department to publically deny the president’s claims.
