Trump delays effective date of travel ban amid court battle

Trump delays effective date of travel ban amid court battle

"As has been noted numerous times, there was a provision in each Executive Order to make the ban permanent by Presidential decree", Modarres said.

"President Trump knows that the country he has been elected to lead is threatened daily by terrorists who believe in a radical ideology, and that there are active plots to infiltrate the USA immigration system - just as occurred prior to 9/11", Sessions said in a statement on Monday. "As the government says, there is no doubt that this executive order 'has been the subject of passionate political debate.' But whatever one's views, 'the precedent set by this case for the judiciary's proper role in reviewing the president's national security and immigration authority will transcend this debate, this order, and this constitutional moment'". The injunctions blocking the ban were upheld on appeal.

In the face of yet another courtroom defeat, the White House remained defiant.

While the dispute over the travel ban and other controversies have simmered during Trump's first few months in office, his choice of the 49-year-old Gorsuch for the Supreme Court won widespread praise in the legal community as well as unanimous Republican support in the Senate. "I think we can all attest that these are very risky times and we need every available tool at our disposal to prevent terrorists from entering the United States". Presidents do have substantial latitude in setting immigration policy and in preserving national security, but those powers are not limitless and can not be exercised arbitrarily.




Legendary journalist Lyle Denniston is Constitution Daily's Supreme Court correspondent. "Unfortunately, this injunction prevents the President from fully carrying out his Article II duties and has a chilling effect on security operations overall".

The U.S. Supreme Court has given the administration more time to present its case for reinstating President Donald Trump's executive order temporarily banning travelers from six predominantly Muslim countries. A three-judge panel ruled in favor of Hawaii's challenge of the president's revised travel ban. "We welcome this ruling and believe it and the previous rulings in different courts outline a clear path that the Supreme Court should follow".

Specifically, Trump is seeking review of recent Ninth and Fourth Circuit court opinions upholding injunctions on the enforcement of the travel ban arising out of district courts in Hawaii and Maryland, respectively.
