Trump administration won't appeal travel ban block, revised immigration order planned

President Trump signs an executive order on January 27th imposing a travel ban on refugees and a ninety-day hold on travellers from Syria Iran and five other Muslim-majority countries

"As far as the new order, the new order is going to be very much tailored to the what I consider to be a very bad decision", Trump said of the appeals court's ruling last week blocking enforcement of the controversial restrictions on travelers from seven majority-Muslim countries.

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.

"I'm not prepared to slow down", said US District Judge James Robart, who previously issued a temporary restraining order halting the ban.

Justice Department lawyers had until 6 p.m.to respond, afterwards, the court will schedule a hearing to rule whether the ban should remain on hold or not, making the next few days critical for the future of the president's executive order.

They said the Trump administration presented no evidence that any foreigner from the seven countries - Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - was responsible for a terrorist attack in the U.S.

Three federal judges unanimously rejected the Justice Department's arguments that the president's authority on immigration policy is his discretion alone, with no authority for review by the courts. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld that ruling to keep the travel ban blocked.

They said they would notify the court of the new order "as soon as it is issued".

David Bier, an immigration policy analyst at the libertarian Cato Institute, wrote that "Trump's new policy would run afoul of at least one if not all three of (the) restrictions - nationality, place of birth, or place of residence - depending on how it was applied".

Kremlin Says Putin and Trump Will Meet In July
All nine agents confirmed that Flynn had extensive contact with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak before and after the election. But U.S. officials are now saying that the sanctions were also a topic of conversation.

The first thing President Trump repeals and replaces is going to be his own executive order on immigration.

Trump's executive order to ban immigrants from other countries for a period of time is better for USA citizens as well as protection, but that it will help create fairness with those who are registered as Americans.

While announcing his exertion at the Department of Defense on Friday, Trump reflected upon the memory of the 9/11 terror attacks, and said, "We will never forget the lessons of 9/11, nor the heroes who have lost their lives at the Pentagon".

The immigration order, issued on January 27, led to confusion in USA airports and prompted global protests and complaints from businesses. For instance, in 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a whopping 86 percent of the cases it reviewed from the Ninth Circuit Court.

"Let me tell you about the travel ban".

Trump said Thursday that he did not order that conversation, but he "would have directed" him to have that conversation had he known. That could mean that if this case makes it to the Supreme Court, it would stand a great chance of being decided in the Trump administration's favor. If 45 ordered Acting Attorney General Yates to defend the Travel Ban and she refused, it is within his authority to fire her for insubordination.

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.
