Bullish on Presidency, Trump Vows New Travel Ban, Defends Flynn, Blasts Media

Donald Trump is considering other alternatives including changes to his executive order

"We're issuing a new executive action next week that will comprehensively protect our country", he explained. "We're - we're actually taking people that are criminals, very, very hardened criminals in some case with - which a, with a tremendous track record of abuse and problems, and we're getting them out, and that's what I said I would do", President Trump said. When Robart ruled that Trump's ban on immigrants from seven Muslim countries was likely unconstitutional, Trump called his ruling "ridiculous", dismissed him as a "so-called judge" and falsely claimed that his decision meant "anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into the U.S".

"Rather than continuing this litigation, the president intends in the near future to rescind the order and replace it with a new, substantially revised executive order to eliminate what the panel erroneously thought were constitutional concerns", the department said in its brief.

The president signed the order January 27 to bar entry of visa holders from seven Muslim-majority countries - Yemen, Sudan, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Somalia - for 90 days, pending additional security checks. It led to massive protests and was put on hold by a federal appeals court. The company's data scientists told the Los Angeles Times that it was "hard to see any other short-term significant events that could be related", other than Trump's assuming office and his impending travel ban.

Most legal experts agree that when a revised executive order is issued, the court ruling blocking enforcement of the current one would cease to have legal effect, and the government could immediately begin enforcing the new one.

The White House fully and forcefully expects any new order will easily pass legal muster.

Trump's executive order to ban immigrants and refugees from other countries for a period of time is better for US citizens because it will help control the number of terrorist attacks.

The director of policy at the International Refugee Assistance Project Betsy Fisher said, "The executive order doesn't say "we're banning Muslims".

The travel ban caused chaos at USA airports the week it was in effect. For instance, in 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a whopping 86 percent of the cases it reviewed from the Ninth Circuit Court. To let calmer heads prevail and conduct the security analysis that was going to be conducted during these proposed 90 days given that according to the president, this is not an outright travel ban forever. Refugees were banned for 120 days, except those from Syria, who were banned indefinitely.

Trump's EO anti-terrorism campaign has wreaked havoc on the United States airports and the thousands of passengers who were not allowed to leave the terminals.

A three-judge panel of the court last week refused to lift a stay that blocked the government from enforcing the order. Interestingly, this was the one part of his executive order that was not struck down by the lawsuits filed in Washington state and Minnesota.

"The public has a powerful interest in national security and in the ability of an elected president to enact policies, and on the other, the public also has an interest in free flow of travel, in avoiding separation of families, and in freedom from discrimination".
