Anti-Terrorism Measures To Continue Despite Court Setback, Says Trump

Anti-Terrorism Measures To Continue Despite Court Setback, Says Trump

The American dream transformed into a nightmare on January 27 when President Donald Trump signed an executive order indefinitely suspending admissions for Syrian refugees and temporarily restricting the entrance of other refugees into the US from six additional Muslim-majority countries - Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya.

Judge panel also said that, Trump's administration neither provided any proof nor proved it that the USA terror attacks were the responsibility of a foreigner from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen countries.

Speaking to reporters at the White House on Thursday, Trump said the new order will be tailored to the court decision blocking the first order.

The administration, which has been losing court battles around the nation over the ban, promised the new order at a press conference and in written arguments filed with the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

It has been met with worldwide criticism and anger with protests being held in America and across the globe.

At today's press conference, the president maligned the court's ruling.

Judges from NY to Seattle have granted limited relief for citizens of the seven Muslim-majority countries who have already arrived in the United States (or are in the air) with a valid visa or green card, blocking their deportation from the country (for now).

"The President intends in the near future", it promised, "to rescind this Order and replace it with a new, substantially revised Executive Order to eliminate what the panel erroneously thought were constitutional concerns".

State of Washington v. Donald Trump led a judge to put a stay on the travel ban. Clearly, this had upset many people in the United States, and even those who are trying to escape from danger in another country.

"DACA is a very, very hard subject for me, I will tell you", Trump said.

But the government's brief essentially renders the issue moot, declaring that a new order will sidestep more legal delays. "But we are tailoring it now to the decision", Trump said. 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. This might include a travel ban carve-out for legal permanent residents or removal of references to religious minorities in the refugee provisions. The Justice Department said it opposes discovery at a hearing last week.

The Justice Department had requested that courtroom proceedings in Seattle be suspended while the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decides whether to hear the case. It also barred all refugees for 90 days and refugees from Syria indefinitely.

If the administration had made a decision to spend a month crafting the order, "everything would've been ideal", Trump said. But Washington state and Minnesota challenged the constitutionality of the order, saying the ban illegally targets Muslims.

"Essentially, plaintiffs argue that the United States Constitution grants nonresident aliens located overseas due-process, equal-protection, and Establishment-Clause rights regarding admission into the United States", Paxton wrote, adding that he is "aware of no case extending those rights anywhere close to the extent that plaintiffs assert".
