US Appeals Court Puts Proceedings Over Trump's Immigration Ban on Hold

18 February, 2017

United States President Donald Trump on Thursday said that he will issue a new version of his controversial travel ban, which prohibits refugees and people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering America.

The Justice Department told the Ninth Circuit on Thursday that it is no longer interested in pursuing the court case over President Donald Trump's travel ban because the president has plans to rewrite it. 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 said that given the upcoming replacement, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals should not reconsider an earlier ruling that suspended the order.

The President, in a long rambling news conference, denounced the 9th Circuit for its "incorrect and unsafe ruling" and declared, without a scintilla of evidence, that the San Francisco-based appellate court is "in chaos". "We had a court that gave us what I consider to be, with great respect, a very bad decision".

Government lawyers said the appeals court should vacate its prior decision when the new executive order is issued.

President Trump speaks during a news conference Thursday at the White House in Washington, D.C. The 9th Circuit has since requested that the entire court vote on whether to grant an en banc review of the panel's decision.

Trump said his administration would be "vigorously defending this lawful order".

Real Madrid vs Napoli, Champions League
Napoli's main goal threat also tested Navas, but the Costa Rican stopper ably came and met his effort from Insigne's through ball. Isco restored Real's lead in the 62nd and Zinedine Zidane's side added a third through Vazquez with the last kick of the game.

U.S. officials reportedly suspect that Kim's murder this week was a political assassination, ordered by Kim Jong-un. Malaysian authorities have not identified the suspected assassin, but have started an investigation.

This Ninth Circuit order does not directly control Robart, who this week was collecting legal briefs to decide the next stage of this litigation to supersede his short-term TRO with a preliminary injunction that would continue to block EO 13,769 all the way through the legal process until a final court judgment.

The office of AG Bob Ferguson then tweeted: 'Pleased to see Judge Robart reject Trump Administration's request to delay.

Even people who believe that the executive order was constitutional criticized the government's rollout of it. "President Trump could have sought review of this flawed Order in the Supreme Court but declined to face yet another defeat".

"It was a very bad decision, very bad for the safety and security of our country", he said, reported AFP. Further and more explicitly, that Senate report contained information on the terror-related crimes, arrests and sentences of 72 individuals, whose country of origin was explicitly one of the seven terrorist-haven countries named in the Trump executive order-with the greatest number coming from Somalia, Yemen, Iraq and Syria.

Washington state's case against Trump has garnered widespread support from other states and the tech and business community.

Opponents of the ban had said the ban unconstitutionally discriminated against Muslims.

"No Ban, No Wall" protests have been popping up across the country to pushback against the refugee ban and Trump's immigration policies, which is one move that has garnered much of the overall attention.
