The White House has hit back at an 'outrageous' court ruling which overturned Donald Trump's controversial immigration ban on Friday - and has vowed to file an 'emergency stay' to overturn it.
The temporary restraining order represents a major challenge to Trump's ban on immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
Judge James Robart made his ruling effective immediately on Friday, and Customs and Border Protection immediately alerted major US airlines that it will begin to reinstate visas.
The state's attorney general, Bob Ferguson, said: 'This decision shuts down the executive order right now. No one is above the law -- not even the President'.
With the Department of Justice reportedly seeking to file an emergency stay to reverse the decision as soon as Saturday, it opens a narrow window for previously barred travelers to enter the country.
However, it was unclear how the change in status was being received on the ground.
No U.S. airports reported they were releasing travelers still held in limbo on Friday night and there were no reports of any passengers exploiting the gap.
Going into the weekend, further chaos is undoubtedly expected as the two branches of government begin a tug of war battle over the law - with customs offices attempting to interpret directions at the center.
Executive orders are subject to legal review by a federal court when brought before a US judge.
President Trump's ban has been temporarily blocked nationwide by a federal judge
After a federal judge put a nationwide block on U.S. President Donald Trump's week-old immigration ban on Friday, the White House hit back at the 'outrageous' ruling and said it 'intends to file an emergency stay'
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement late Friday night that the Department of Justice intends to halt the 'outrageous order' at the earliest possible time but not as soon as Friday night
It took Trump's administration three hours to grasp how to address the Seattle judge's order
Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement that the Department of Justice intends to halt the 'outrageous order' at the earliest possible time but not as soon as Friday night.
Immediately after releasing the first statement the White House issued another release with the same wording but removed 'outrageous', reported CNN.
The State Department is working with the Department of Homeland Security to determine how it affects its operations, a State Department official said.
Until the Department of Justice wins its emergency stay, previously denied travelers could have a small window of opportunity to enter the country.
Trump has not made a personal statement about the swift undoing of his order. He is currently at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida and was expected to stay there for the weekend and host a Super Bowl party.
Robart, who was appointed by former President George W. Bush, made his decision after Washington state and Minnesota urged a nationwide hold on the executive order that has launched legal battles across the country.
He repeatedly questioned the federal government's lawyer, Michelle Bennett, about the rationale behind the order.
BREAKING: Court That Blocked Trump’s Travel Ban Was HIDING Something Critical
Angry Patriot
February 2017
The ruling on Trump’s travel ban was based on a huge inaccuracy about refugees. The 9th Circuit Court claimed no refugees from banned nations had committed crimes in the US.
Individuals from Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Iraq, and Yemen have committed a grand total of 72 crimes on American soil. Thirty-three of the migrants convicted for the 72 crimes had committed significant acts of terror!
Just because the mainstream media fail to report something, that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen! The politically correct talking heads in the press spent all their air time calling OUR president a mean old racist instead of reporting the facts!
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, citizens from the nations in the temporary travel ban were convicted of crimes while living in 16 different states across the country. The report crime statistics revealed migrants from Somalia and Yemen had committed a double-digit number of crimes after being allowed into our country.
The migrant crimes by nation include Somalia 20, Yemen 19, Iraq 19, Syria 7, Iran 4, Libya 2, Sudan 1. Ten of the crimes by migrants were committed in New York.
Minnesota, which has become a bastion for Muslim refugees and immigrants, was the state where the second highest number of these crimes occurred. California, Washington State, and Michigan also experienced crime. No wonder President Trump believes we need to pause travel from those seven countries until better vetting is possible.
The 9th Circuit Court overstepped its bounds with the ruling. The judges are duty bound to enforce existing statutes — making new law is not within their authority.
It has been six decades since the United States Congress gave the president the power to decide who can, and who absolutely cannot, come into America. The president also has the authority to determine for how long individuals from another country can’t come here based on a viable threat to our national security.
“Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restriction he may deem to be appropriate,” the statute granting travel ban power to the president, says, according to Cornell University Law School.
Violating the law should land the 9th Circuit Court judges on the other side of the bench and being held to account. That likely will not happen, but it should.
Enforcing the law, all laws, as written, stopped being a priority during the Barack Obama administration. He showed as much concern for the law then as he does now by tacitly encouraging the rioters.
There is a new leader in the White House now. The 9th Circuit Court ruling was merely an unnecessary, illegal, and security-reducing bump in the road. President Trump will prevail. We will have secure borders and proper vetting, and he will see to it, political correctness be damned!
