"We will be issuing a new and very comprehensive order to protect our people" to be announced at the beginning or middle of next week, Trump said. Indeed, at a press conference held Thursday, Trump seemed to contradict the DOJ, telling reporters that his administration was "appealing" the 9 Circuit decision and would continue that fight while also issuing a new executive order next week.
It has been met with worldwide criticism and anger with protests being held in America and across the globe.
The director of policy at the International Refugee Assistance Project Betsy Fisher said, "The executive order doesn't say "we're banning Muslims".
Once the new order is issued, Justice Department lawyers urged on Thursday, the court should vacate the three-judge panel's decision agains the administration. A three-judge panel on the Ninth Circuit had upheld Robart's order last week, but judges on the appeals court are voting on whether the case should be reheard before an 11-judge panel, known as an en banc review. Clearly, this had upset many people in the United States, and even those who are trying to escape from danger in another country. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) said "I don't understand language like that, we don't have any so-called judges, we have real judges".
US District Judge James Robart in Seattle suspended the order nationwide after Washington state challenged its legality, eliciting a barrage of angry Twitter messages from Trump against the judge and the court system.
Advocacy groups say they plan to file additional lawsuits in the days to come challenging the constitutionality of the order as whole.
India's Consumer Inflation Drops to 5-Year Low
India's inflation slowed slightly more than expected in January, data from the Central Statistics Office revealed Monday. This is highest level for the CPI level of inflation since June 2014.
Justice Department lawyers, though, seemed to think it would have a major impact.
A new executive order would not necessarily end the litigation over Trump's travel ban - particularly if it were not a dramatic departure from the original directive. "That's the only thing that was wrong with the travel ban".
According to statistics compiled by SCOTUSBlog, a respected Supreme Court website, the high court reversed 79 percent of the cases it reviewed from the Ninth Circuit between 2010 and 2015.
Trump's order cited national security as the reason he was barring indefinitely the entry of refugees from Syria, placing a 120-day moratorium on refugee admissions from other countries and freezing for 90 days the entry of anyone from the seven named countries.
The nation's former intelligence chief, James Clapper, has told Congress that USA agencies are confident Russian Federation interfered in the presidential election that Trump won, and that the former Cold War foe an "existential threat" to the nation, but there's no way to know if Russia's meddling swayed the election. "And he was right", the president said.
A representative for Washington state's attorney general did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the Trump administration's planned new executive order. The judges have only been asked to consider whether national security concerns necessitate an immediate restoration of the travel ban, when weighed against the economic and other harms Washington and Minnesota say it is imposing on their states.
