The US has ordered 2,300 US citizens who are currently living abroad to leave the country within 60 days.
The order is in addition to a similar order issued by President Donald Trump earlier this month.
It comes after a wave of violent protests across the US this week that included the burning of US flags and the looting of banks.
Trump has said that he was not motivated by racism but rather “the fact that the people of our country were tired of being treated unfairly”.
Trump said on Twitter that he would be sending the order to Congress and the secretary of state to be signed by the president.
Trump was criticized for his use of social media to promote his agenda.
But critics said he had also used his power to bully others.
US citizens are banned from traveling to the US for 180 days, but they can visit the country to work or to attend conferences.
Trump did not immediately comment on the order.
