NEW YORK (AP) The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local):5:40 p.m.

The president says he is not responsible for the travel ban, but he says he wants to work with Congress on a replacement.

The executive order signed Friday temporarily bans travel from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days, for the next 90 days and for 90 months.

The White House says it will also temporarily suspend the entry of refugees for 120 days.

The order also suspends for 90 weeks any admission of refugees from Syria.

The travel ban has been criticized by lawmakers, business groups and legal experts as discriminatory and ineffective.
