Following a court injunction on his executive order on travel ban, US President Donald Trump said he will sign a new version of his executive order banning citizens of seven mostly Muslim countries and all refugees from travelling to the United States.
Stating that it does not want a larger appellate panel to review the court ruling, Trump administration in a court filing on February 16 said, it would soon replace the travel ban with his new executive order.
“In so doing, the president will clear the way for immediately protecting the country rather than pursuing further, potentially time-consuming litigation,” the administration said in the court documents.
Addressing a news conference at White House, Trump said, “The new order is going to be very much tailored to what I consider a very, very bad decision.”
“We can tailor the order to the decision to get just as much,” he added.
The new order on immigration will be in place by next week and according to Trump it will still achieve the goal of blocking terrorist from entering Unites States.
Attacking the verdict on travel ban, Trump administration said, the-judge bench panel misunderstood the scope of the order.
The three-judge panel said the states had raised “serious” allegations that the ban targets Muslims, and the courts could consider statements Trump has made about shutting down Muslim immigration.
