The policy prohibited immigrants and refugees from coming into the USA for 90 days from seven countries known for producing terrorists (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen).
President Trump says that his administration will be appealing the court decision that has halted his travel ban from being in effect, and that he will also be issuing a new, "very comprehensive order" next week.
President Donald Trump's administration said in court documents on Thursday it does not want a larger appellate panel to review a ruling keeping its travel ban on hold and will instead replace the ban.
Ever since President Donald Trump signed an executive order to ban all immigration from coming into the United States, an out lash of protests have swept across this nation.
At today's press conference, the president maligned the court's ruling.
The director of policy at the International Refugee Assistance Project Betsy Fisher said, "The executive order doesn't say "we're banning Muslims".
Though the filing sounds an bad lot like a surrender-the words "SEE YOU IN COURT" do not appear-there is no certainty that Trump won't continue fighting for his original order even as he prepares a new one.
Turkish president: Troops entered IS stronghold in Syria
Putin expressed condolences to Erdogan over the deaths of Turkish soldiers near Syria's al-Bab, the Kremlin said earlier. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Monday that Turkey was seeking to create a safe zone inside war-torn Syria.
The litigation relating to the EO is still in its early stages, a fact the appeals court recognized in its decision when it stated that it weighed the relevant factors "in light of the limited evidence put forward by both parties at this very preliminary stage". "The national security interests (likely asserted here) may make it particularly hard to win in court even though the order seems so egregiously constitutional". Secretary Kelly said that all is going well with very few problems.
President Trump's executive order to suspend the highly controversial (and highly dangerous) refugee program has been stymied by the courts. If the new order applied to a smaller group of people, such as those from the affected countries who have never come to the U.S. before, it might be harder to defeat in court.
The Justice Department court filing said Trump's order would be "substantially revised" but did not provide details. 45 and the current Acting Attorney General plan to move this case further and 45's administration remains hopeful they will prevail; Kellyanne Conway believes the current ruling does not affect the merits of the Executive Order and that they will have their day in court and that they will prevail.
Trump said his administration would be "vigorously defending this lawful order".
Michelle Bennett, a Justice Department lawyer, told Robart there was no basis for speeding up the trial, arguing states are not being harmed because there's a temporary injunction in place. It also barred all refugees for 90 days and refugees from Syria indefinitely.
Judge Ann Donnelly said the implementation of the order would be a violation of the Constitution's equal protection and due process clause, according to CNN.
The Ninth Circuit requested the states of Washington and Minnesota, which challenged the ban, and the Justice Department to file briefs by Thursday laying out whether they thought en banc reconsideration was appropriate.
