9th Circuit, Citing Education and Other Factors, Refuses to Reinstate Travel Ban

President Trump signs an executive order on January 27th imposing a travel ban on refugees and a ninety-day hold on travellers from Syria Iran and five other Muslim-majority countries

David Martosko, the Daily Mail's US Political Editor, said he was sceptical of "earpiece-gate" but shared the video of the conference that showed Trump picking up the earpiece from the podium as the Q&A began.

The US President, who is in his third week in office, also promised that he would take action "rapidly" to improve security in America.

The President's remarks came after a three-judge bench of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco refused to reinstate his controversial travel ban on Thursday.

"We'll be doing things to continue to make our country safe", Mr Trump pledged at a news conference with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe.

"We will continue to go through the court process", Trump said. "It will happen rapidly", he told reporters.

"We are committed to the security of Japan and all areas under its administrative control", Trump said, according to CNN.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this weekend denied the administration's request to immediately set aside a Seattle judge's ruling that put a hold on the ban nationwide.

Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson, a critic of the executive order, argued that the court needed to send the message the president should not be "un-reviewable" - especially for an order considered by many to be a "Muslim ban". The travel ban, which he enacted at the end of his first week in office, caused chaos at United States airports and gave rise to widespread protests.




Mr Trump and his aides frequently refer to a ruling by a federal judge in Boston who declined last week to extend a temporary injunction against Mr Trump's travel ban.

For Trump and his administration, the top court would be a risky bet, as it is now divided evenly between four conservative and four progressive justices. And there are tremendous threats to our country.

Here's what Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson had to say.

"We have multiple options and we are considering all of them", he told ABC's This Week.

Earlier Friday, Trump vowed to do "whatever is necessary to keep our country safe".

Instead, he said, the court "considered the real ones - including the impact of the president's executive order on so many and the unambiguous statements of the president's discriminatory intent".

Trump's original order mandated a temporary pause in admission of refugees, a 90-day prohibition on entry by residents of Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen, and an indefinite suspension of admission of Syrian refugees. "We have seen him in court twice and we're two for two, that's number one", Ferguson said.

Miller also suggested there could a revised order or new actions to address what he called the vulnerability of the immigration system to terrorism.
