Federal judges of two states have temporarily blocked the revised version of executive order and a follow-up statement from White House press secretary Sean Spicer comes confirming Trump administration would appeal to the rulings.
Spicer said, “The danger is real and the law is clear.”
The temporary halt of revised travel ban comes from a federal judge in Hawaii first and again from another federal judge in Maryland.
The revised version of travel ban has excluded Iraq and eased away some strict restrictions, but six Muslim-major countries are still in the executive order.
Trump announced the new ban earlier in March and it defines to bar people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States for 90 days and for the refugees the duration is 120 days.
The Justice Department said to be defending the new version of travel ban in court citing the changes are not enough.
The original order of Trump banned immigrants from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria and Yemen from entering the country for 90 days. The executive order also barred all refugees for 120 days.
Trump said there are tremendous threats to United States and they will not allow it to happen by not allowing dangerous people in the country while others will be welcomed.
