A Virginia federal judge on Monday blocked President Trump's executive order to ban seven predominantly Muslim countries.
"We have some of the best lawyers in the country working on it and the new executive order is being tailored to the decision we got down from the court, ok?"
Though the filing sounds an very bad lot like a surrender-the words "SEE YOU IN COURT" do not appear-there is no certainty that Trump won't continue fighting for his original order even as he prepares a new one.
The seven nations listed in President Trump's order have Muslim majorities, but Trump's detractors have been the ones to make this an issue, while ignoring the fact that many other countries with Muslim majorities (Indonesia, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Egypt, etc.) were not part of the travel ban. He described the ruling that led to the stay as "incorrect and unsafe", and the appeals court's decision to uphold it as a "bad decision".
The Justice Department court filing on Thursday said Trump's order would be "substantially revised" but did not provide details.
Instead, Trump plans to rescind the old one and issue a new one "in the near future". Trump said, however, that Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said no and that the order had to take effect immediately. It could mean that the new executive order will include provisions that weren't included in the original, or that there will be more countries added to the blacklist on the visa ban.
First, considering that the legal framework on which the order rests has never been considered either unreasonable or unconstitutional, it seems more than a little ludicrous to assign the execution of those laws either of those titles.
The Ninth Circuit Court states that while counseling deference to the national security determinations of the political branches, the Supreme Court states that the Government's "authority and expertise in [such] matters do not automatically trump the Court's own obligation to secure the protection that the Constitution grants to individuals, " even in times of war.
Trump said Thursday that he did not order that conversation, but he "would have directed" him to have that conversation had he known.
Justice Department lawyers, though, seemed to think it would have a major impact.
A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit last week refused to block a lower-court decision that suspended the ban.
"The end result of this, though, is that our opponents - the media - and the whole world will soon see, as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned".
If the administration had made a decision to spend a month crafting the order, "everything would've been ideal", Trump said.
The case had generated filings by interested parties ranging from civil liberties groups and legal scholars supporting the efforts of Washington and Minnesota to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who argued in a brief filed Wednesday that the judges are usurping President Trump's authority and improperly granting rights to foreigners that should be limited to American citizens.
