Fed. judge Halts Trump’s Travel Ban Executive Order

A federal judge appointed by former President Bush has halted the Travel ban executive order issued by President Donald Trump. The Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay of this order and intends to defend the executive order of the President, which “we believe is lawful and appropriate,” the statement said.

Some layers contend that the executive order violates the US Constitution. The judges order has once more opened doors for travelers from these countries to begin travelling to the United States if they have valid US visas.

The White House initially labeled the judge’s action an “outrageous order” but within 10 minutes had sent a second, nearly identical statement that stripped out that adjective.

“The president’s order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people,” it continued.

The State Department said it was working with the Department of Homeland Security to determine how the ruling affects operations, according to CNN.
