Trump to overturn decision by a Judge to temporarily halt the travel ban


US President Donald Trump has said that he will overturn the decision by federal judge in Seattle who temporarily halted his travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries and the suspension of refugee admission.

Trump posted a couple of series after Friday’s ruling by the Seattle judge James Robart. In one of them Trump says “The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!”

Trump signed an executive order last week that suspended all refugee admissions for 120 days, and indefinitely for Syria. The order also banned people from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia from entering the United States.

According to CNN, US Customs and Border Protection alerted airlines that the US government will quickly begin reinstating visas that were previously canceled, and advised airlines that refugees in possession of US visas will be admitted as well.

“At the earliest possible time, the Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay of this outrageous order and defend the executive order of the President, which we believe is lawful and appropriate… The President’s order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people.” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement
