President Trump, in a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, just hinted that a new executive order was coming next week. Trump made it clear that his administration will be doing something very rapidly in relation to additional security for the United States.
It's apparent that Trump's administration is willing to keep the country safe by doing whatever is necessary. The President made it clear that he would continue to fight for the travel ban in court, adding that there's no doubt that he'll win.
This comes after Trump's administration argued that states had no right to sue to block the immigration order, adding that the courts have no authority to review an executive branch decision on immigration policy. In retaliation, the panel of three judges made it clear that the federal judiciary retains the authority to adjudicate constitutional challenges to executive action.
Trump has opted not to appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court, instead, he has decided to issue another executive order that explicitly omits green-card holders from the travel ban, this will most likely head off legal challenges.
Joe Scarborough of MSNBC cited unnamed sources as he said that the White House is currently working on redrafting an executive order which will be tight enough to pass. President Trump blasted the 9th Circuit's disgraceful decision on twitter saying that the 9th Circuit 29-page opinion didn't bother to cite the statute granting the President fairly broad and unilateral authority to restrict immigration at his own discretion.
The controversial case revolves around two big questions. The first question being how broad the president's authority is to limit admissions from the relevant seven countries and to what extent that authority is limited by constitutional law, under a statute that gives him sweeping power to do that.
Considering the suspension of entry or the imposition of restrictions by the President, its worth noting that if the President finds that the entry of aliens or any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the U.S. he may by proclamation, and for a period that he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions that he may deem to be appropriate.
Unfortunately, the panel did not bother to cite this statue, which forms the principal statutory basis for the executive order. That was a very big omission in the 29 pages
