‘A lot of things have to go right’: The fallout from Donald Trump’s immigration order



The president’s order temporarily suspends the entry of all refugees for 120 days, suspends immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries and temporarily blocks entry of refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya and Yemen.

The order also bars entry of foreign nationals from Iran, Syria, Sudan and Libya.

Trump signed the order after a federal judge blocked its enforcement.

A federal appeals court later blocked his order on similar grounds, citing a lack of evidence that Trump or his aides had been briefed on the law.

On Wednesday, the Justice Department filed a new brief to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals arguing that the president is not required to comply with the order, even though it does prohibit the president from discriminating on the basis of religion.

The administration’s new brief said the order is constitutional because it applies to the entire country, not just a few states.

It also said the president has broad authority to waive the travel ban on humanitarian grounds and it is permissible to waive it on religious grounds.

The Trump administration said it will argue in the appeal that the law was intended to provide “security benefits” for the country, and not to allow for discrimination based on religion.
