Trump's Travel Ban 2.0

What to know about Trump's visa and refugee restrictions

Trump's most publicized executive order was his immigration ban, blocking citizens from seven Muslim majority countries from entering the US, as well as halting the refugee program.

"Extreme vetting will be put in place, and it already is in place in many places", Trump said, adding that the administration "had to go quicker than we thought" because a federal appeals court refused to lift the suspension on his ban.

"In so doing, the President will clear the way for immediately protecting the country rather than pursuing further, potentially time-consuming litigation", the DOJ said in its filing. "President Trump could have sought review of this flawed Order in the Supreme Court but declined to face yet another defeat". It also blocks entry to the USA for 90 days to all citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

A federal judge's ruling on February 3 haltedenforcement of the executive order, and on February 9, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied the Justice Department's request to lift that stay.

In filings with the Ninth Circuit today, both the federal government and the states of Washington and Minnesota urged the court to decline an "en banc" review of an earlier, unanimous ruling by a panel of three Ninth Circuit judges.

"We had a very smooth roll out of the travel ban, but we had a bad court ... got a bad decision", Trump told reporters.

Things got worse for the shellshocked Gunners six minutes later. Bayern and Arsenal traded blows as the first half wound down. Goals: Robben 11, Lewandowski 53, Thiago 56, 63, Muller 88.

"We are issuing a new executive action next week that will comprehensively protect our country", Trump said on Thursday. And it said the appeals court wrongly concluded that almost all visa holders in the USA have a right to an individualized hearing before they could be subject to the executive order's limitations.

The Washington Examiner's Daniel Allott explains the problem with the original order: "Trump's initial executive order, issued in late January, raised constitutional and humanitarian questions as nobody seemed to know exactly who was barred from the county". A significant number of the American Left take the position that "an enemy of the United States is our friend" for they share the common goal of breaking down the traditional values and institutions in America as a precursor to their establishing a new socialist order. "Where we do not see eye to eye the United States will stand up for the interests and values of America and her allies". Texas also contends that Trump's order does not target Muslims as is generally suggested.

"Indeed, numerous Muslim-majority countries in the world are not covered by the seven-country list used in the Executive Order", the brief notes.

"It was a very bad decision, very bad for the safety and security of our country", he said, reported AFP. The Ninth Circuit's order has no impact on any of those other cases, though most other courts will likely follow suit.

Since the seven affected nations are largely Muslim, many have called it a Muslim ban - a term Trump himself used on the campaign trail.
