Enforcement of Trump'sexecutive order banning travel from seven majority-Muslim countries has been suspended since a federal district judge in Seattle issued a temporary restraining order against it.
U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday he will rescind his controversial executive order temporarily barring entry to refugees and immigrants and replace it with a new one next week.
"In doing so, the President will clear the way for immediately protecting the country rather than pursuing further, potentially time-consuming litigation", a statement said. If the new order applied to a smaller group of people, such as those from the affected countries who have never come to the USA before, it might be harder to defeat in court.
"We will be issuing a new and very comprehensive order to protect our people", Trump said at a news conference. The judges also rejected the federal government's argument that courts do not have the authority to review the president's immigration and national security decisions.
Trump did not clarify details of the new order, saying only that it would be "tailored" to the "bad" courts that described the original order as overreaching, suggesting it would be narrower in its focus. Such comments raise concerns that the order violates the Constitution's Establishment Clause, which forbids the government from favoring one religion over another, and the Equal Protection Clause, which prevents discrimination against people based on their religion. "That would be a harder executive order to overturn". Trump's first order temporarily barred refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the USA, ostensibly so officials could review and tighten screening procedures. Or, let me ask the question this way: does anybody think the Trump administration appreciates why the ban was wrong, or do they just think that using different words to accomplish the same goals will pass constitutional muster?
