Trump administration asks for more time to file travel ban briefs

The ruling from a unanimous three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is yet another stinging loss from a court that similarly refused to reinstate Trump's original executive order on travel in February. The court said the Trump administration failed to show that people, including refugees, coming from mainly Muslim nations would hurt American interests.

Last month, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, upheld an injunction on President Trump's travel ban, saying the executive order, "speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination".

I think we can all attest that these are very unsafe times and we need every available tool at our disposal to prevent terrorists from entering the United States and committing acts of bloodshed and violence.

If the court grants review of 4th Circuit decision, the Justice Department said it should also grant review of the 9th Circuit decision and consolidate the cases for arguments. But the appeals court narrowed the injunction issued by Watson in a significant way. If five of the nine judges vote for a stay the travel ban could be reinstated immediately until the court hears the entire case. But Hawaii, which had successfully challenged the ban, earlier in the day had told the Supreme Court it had no objection to such a move.

Trump had issued his initial travel ban executive order a week into his presidency, unleashing chaos at airports, mass protests in the US and worldwide, condemnation from a broad spectrum of global leaders - and unprecedented attacks by the president on the federal judiciary after judges ruled against the ban. It originally included a proposed ban on travellers from seven nations, which was subsequently reduced to six after Iraq was removed, leaving Iran, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen. The letter also requested that the new set of papers be filed by June 21, one day before the Supreme Court is scheduled to meet for its final private session before they break for the summer.

Trump has been on the losing side in all four court rulings on the March order.

Trump also called out the media in a tweet, but it's unclear exactly what stories he was addressing.

Instead, they ruled that the travel ban lacked a sufficient national security or other justification that would make it legal, and that violated immigration law.

Hawaii's lawyers said Trump had provided evidence that his administration already was doing the work that it said required a halt in travel to accomplish.

What sparked the release of Trump's wrath is the fact that the 9th United States Circuit Court unanimously upheld the decision to block his revised travel ban. A revised executive order was signed March 6 and now is the one being argued in the courts.
