Justice Dept. appeals block on Trump's travel ban

[2/5/2017 5:22:09 AM]

AMMONNEWS - The US justice department has appealed a temporary block of Donald Trump's immigration ban on citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries.

The Department of Homeland Security announced it has suspended all actions to implement the immigration order and will resume standard inspections of travelers as it did prior to the signing of the travel ban.

U.S. President Donald Trump said the Justice Department will win an appeal filed late Saturday of a judge's order lifting a travel ban he had imposed on citizens of seven mainly Muslim countries.

"We'll win. For the safety of the country, we'll win," he told reporters at his private Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, shortly after the Justice Department filed a notice that it intends to appeal the order.

In a series of tweets early on Saturday, the president wrote: "The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!" Trump also wrote: "When a country is no longer able to say who can, and who cannot , come in and out, especially for reasons of safety and security, - big trouble!" On Saturday morning the state department said it had reversed visa revocations, meaning that tens of thousands of people whose visas were not physically canceled after the issuing of the executive order last week may now travel freely.
