Trump to issue a new immigration order by next week

In what can be a step which will spark controversy, U.S. President Donald Trump has announced that he will issue a new version next week of his executive order banning citizens of 7 Muslim countries and all refugees from traveling to the United States.

Addressing a press conference on Thursday, Trump slammed federal court that struck down the implementation of his travel ban.  “We had a bad court, got a bad decision,” Trump said.


Trump's immigration ordered, issued on January 27, evoked confusion in U.S. airports and prompted international protests and complaints from businesses.

On Thursday, Trump's administration asked for a pause in proceedings by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which had sided with a lower court in halting Mr. Trump's immigration ban. The U.S. President  said his new order would seek to address the issues raised by the court, even as he attacked its reasoning.

“The new order is going to be very much tailored to what Iconsider to be a very bad decision,” Trump said.

Trump's decision to issue a new executive order plunges court proceedings over his actions into further uncertainty. Separate from the appeals court proceedings, a Seattle federal judge on Wednesday ordered both Washington state and the Justice Department to submit initial plans for discovery in the case by next month, according to a Reuters report.

Washington state Attorney-General Bob Ferguson has said he wants to depose Trump officials about their motives for the travel ban, which could help the courts decide whether it violates constitutional protections for religion. The Justice Department said it opposes discovery at a hearing last week.
