“CBS News” : Trump to replace travel ban with new executive order
as mentioned in
“We had a very smooth rollout of the travel ban,” Mr. Trump said, before launching into a harsh critique of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for their decision not to reinstate the travel ban, continuing a days-long campaign against the federal court.
Still, the president said “we’re going to keep going with that decision.”When asked about details of the upcoming order, Mr. Trump said, “What I wanted to do was do the exact same executive order, but said one thing.
Give them a one-month period of time.”It was Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly who did not want to build in implementation time for the ban, Mr. Trump told reporters.
That will be done sometime next week, toward the beginning or middle at the latest part.”Later, he defended his original executive order, which immediately paused the U.S. refugee program and barred any citizen of seven predominantly Muslim nations from entering the country.
During the press conference, Mr. Trump also addressed the Obama-era policy of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which provides some leniency when dealing with undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.
What Trump’s travel ban means to one new U.S. citizen
The president’s ban is still being fought over in the courts, and Mr. Trump has indicated that he may sign a new version of the ban soon.
“I believe the president wants to keep America safe and he wants to make a plan, but this is not a real plan.”The future already seems much dimmer for his family, Baheej fears.
“Maybe this ban, the 90 days, will turn into permanent or forever,” he said.
For him, Iraq was a country where he saw no future: he had lost four siblings in the war.
It took four years, but at age 20 Baheej finally got his visa and left his family for the first time.
Trump says he will repeal travel ban and replace it with a new one next week that’s “tailored” to court decisions
“We had a very smooth rollout… but we had a bad court,” Trump said.
He said the new order will be “very much tailored to what I consider to be a very bad [court] decision.”
President Trump announced Thursday that his administration will be releasing a new, narrower executive order on travel to replace one that’s been shot down by multiple federal courts.
Government lawyers said the appeals court should vacate its prior decision when the new executive order is issued.
Still, Trump defended the original order when speaking to reporters on Thursday.
