President Donald Trump's Travel Ban Halted, Administration Urges For Reinstatement

The Justice Department urges the court to reinstate President Donald Trump's travel ban. A report indicates that the travel ban is a win-win proposition.
According to a report in The New York Times, the administration has requested for the travel ban to be reinstated. It recently has been halted by a judge following its implementation. The blocking of the ban is said to endanger the national security and violate the separation of powers.
The executive order executed by President Trump is to deny some Muslim countries entry to the United States. It also limits the nation's refugee program. The Justice Department indicates that the president has the right to suspend the entry of any class aliens to the country.
Meanwhile, President Trump had gone to Twitter against the judge who halted the executive order for the travel ban. University of Pittsburg Law Professor Arthur Hellman shares that attacking the judge to Twitter can lead to the people's confidence over the judges. It may come out as the judges are deciding not in accordance with the law according to a report in NBC News.
Hellman adds that the judges reach to a conclusion based on listening to both sides. The bad part is when the decisions are personalized by the opposing party and making it look a mistake. Hellman has stated these opinions based on President Trump's Twitter post against the judge.
In the meantime, a report in National Review indicated that even if the travel ban implemented by President Trump has been halted does not make him lose. He may even be upheld legally as the process moves on.
President Trump's travel ban is a legal process. The report further indicates that Trump will eventually get the political credit for trying to safeguard the country with his executive order. As of this time, the travel ban has been halted and there are no further details on when the ban will resume.
