Trump Making Changes To Travel Ban Order After Court Loss
According to NBC News, the White House attorneys are already in the works of rewriting the language of Trump’s executive order on the travel ban to make it more favorable to the courts.
A senior administration official told NBC that the work on rewriting the order began a few days prior to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ refusal to reinstate Trump’s order that bars nationals from Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Iraq and Yemen from entering the country for 90 days.
On Thursday the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had a unanimous decision to keep in place the suspension on Trump’s order.
“We hold that the government has not shown a likelihood of success on the merits of its appeal, nor has it shown that failure to enter a stay would cause irreparable injury, and we therefore deny its emergency motion for a stay,” the court said.
“There is no precedent to support his claimed unreviewability, which runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our constitutional democracy,” the judges wrote.
Trump, angered at the judges decision, sent out a tweet saying, “SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”
“It’s a political decision and we’re going to see them in court,” Trump told reporters.
