Revised executive order being planned: Sources
After the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against his travel ban, Donald Trump has given signals that he will bring in a new, revised ban – possibly as soon as next week.
During a Press Conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump said “We’re going to do whatever is necessary to keep our country safe.”
Trump added, “We’ll be doing something very rapidly having to do with additonal security for our country. You’ll be seeing something next week.”
Though Trump didn’t say what that “something” was, his comments come amid rumours the White House will withdraw their executive order, modify it, and then resubmit it.
This would be the fastest way to get a new travel ban in place, though it would be subjected to challenge just as the previous one was. The benefit to the Trump administration of resubmitting is that otherwise they would have to wait for a lengthy court process.
According to NBC News, White House lawyers are already working on a new executive order that will survive a court challenge.
