In an unyielding determination to protect American lives from foreign terrorists, President Donald Trump said today (February 10, 2017) that he is considering rewriting his executive order -- in a way that may be more acceptable by the courts -- temporarily barring refugees and citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S., according to the Washington Post website.
Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One that he would probably wait until early next week before signing a new executive order.
"We will win the battle," a confident Trump said. He felt it would take too long to wait for his first executive order on immigration to reach the Supreme Court and be approved, while his new executive order would go into effect "rapidly."
The president has forcefully said that judges were wrong in rejecting his executive order, since the Immigration and Nationality Act gives him, as president, broad authority to restrict foreigners from entering the United States.
