Trump delays effective date of travel ban amid court battle

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday upheld a judge's ruling that blocked the temporary ban on refugees as well.

It's now second time the Trump's own remarks have influenced the courts to contradict the executive order.

The court also acknowledged through the press secretary that President Trump considers his tweets as the official communication from his office in White House. The GBTA recently forecast a $1.3 billion loss in overall travel-related expenditures in the USA this year due to the ban, as well as other policies like the proposed expanded laptop ban and other political factors like Brexit.

Federal judges in Maryland and Hawaii blocked Trump's 90-day ban on travelers from Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. "It does not provide any link between an individual's nationality and their propensity to commit terrorism or their inherent dangerousness".

Trump's tweets have increasingly been cited in court's decision process. That was an unconstitutional form of discrimination, the court said in a 10-to-3 ruling. "We welcome this ruling and believe it and the previous rulings in different courts outline a clear path that the Supreme Court should follow".

An entry on the Supreme Court docket said that the administration can file its new brief on Thursday.

"Frankly, I think any lawyer worth their salt 100 percent agrees that the president is fully within his rights and his responsibilities to do what is necessary to protect the country", Spicer told reporters at the White House.

The order also suspends the nation's refugee program for 120 days and imposes a new limit on the number of refugees accepted. The president issued a revised version in March.

The decision issued by the 9 Circuit Court on June 12, 2017, was unanimous.

Trump's visit to the court would be his first since he became president on January 20 and would put him face-to-face with the nine justices as they consider the fate of his travel ban unless the court acts before then.

"Today's ruling once again demonstrates the near-unanimity of judges in ruling against any type of 'Muslim ban, '" said CAIR National Litigation Director Lena Masri.

It also listed some reasons that travelers from those nations might be granted waivers allowing them into the USA despite the policy. The Fourth Circuit court based the decision on Trump's public record of statements indicating his order was motivated by anti-Muslim sentiment rather than national security concerns. The appeals court said Judge Watson had erred in barring the administration from conducting internal reviews of its vetting procedures while the case moved forward.
