Criticizing judges who ruled against his controversial travel ban, President Trump argued that the federal circuit they sit on is regularly overturned by the Supreme Court. So we will be going along the one path and hopefully winning that at the same time we will be issuing a new and very comprehensive order to protect our people. "We can tailor the order to the decision to get just as much", he said. President Donald Trump's executive order to ban immigrants from other countries for a period of time is better for USA citizens because it will help control the number of terrorist attacks and it will help create fairness with those who are registered as US citizens.
Once the new order is issued, Justice Department lawyers urged on Thursday, the court should vacate the three-judge panel's decision agains the administration.
Trump's initial executive order, signed seven days after he took office, prohibited holders of green cards and visas traveling overseas from reentering the United States if they were citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria or Yemen. The order and resulting confusion led to almost immediate litigation - and quick court orders halting enforcement of some of the most harsh ramifications of the order, like deportations and detentions.
The ruling also rejected President Trump's claims that the courts are "powerless" to check the power of a president and review the president's assessments on national security.
President Trump had indicated Friday that he would push new measures this week. In fact, a report released last week shows that "72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump's vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks".

Shops, public transport and other business establishments remained closed. At least 30 civilians were injured in the clashes.
A Seattle judge halted the president's initial travel ban that barred people from seven Muslim-majority countries and caused confusion at airports. Former Acting Attorney General Yates had the clear authority to determine which presidential orders the DOJ will defend in court. That left Justice Department lawyers with two options in the short-run: rush immediately to the Supreme Court, or ask the full 9th Circuit to take up the matter in what is known as a rehearing "en banc". Both sides said no, although for differing reasons.
Trump has said his directive, issued last month, was necessary to protect the United States from attacks by Islamist militants. This might include a travel ban carve-out for legal permanent residents or removal of references to religious minorities in the refugee provisions. 45 and various other voices in support of the Executive Order maintain that it is not a Muslim ban, but a ban of people who have the potential to become radicalized from entering the country from countries where Muslim faith is the majority.
Judge Ann Donnelly said the implementation of the order would be a violation of the Constitution's equal protection and due process clause, according to CNN.
If the administration had chose to spend a month crafting the order, "everything would've been flawless", Trump said. Interestingly, this was the one part of his executive order that was not struck down by the lawsuits filed in Washington state and Minnesota.
