Court Of Appeals Agrees To Wait For The Revision of President Trump Immigration Policy
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has agreed on Thursday, Feb. 16 to hold further action on the immigration policy from President Trump. The court decided to wait for the government to issue new Executive Order to revised the highly objected order that designated to protect U.S. citizens from terrorist attack.
The Chief Judge of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Sidney Thomas issued an order to accede the government request to hold action to a vote to the panel judge as reported by Politico. Judge Thomas in his order wrote that the court will hold the proceedings until the government inform new development.
“En banc proceedings before this Court are stayed pending further Order of this Court," the court order from Judge Thomas read.
The Department of Justice has written to the 9th Court of Appeals to remind the court of a serious flaw in its decision as reported by CNN. The DOJ reiterated the intent of the Executive Order is to protect the American from the potential terrorist attack. The order prohibits foreign nationals from Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Iraq and Yemen to enter the U.S, for 90 days, refugees for 120 days and Syrian refugees for indefinite time.
Since his inauguration, President Donald Trump has sent a strong signal to fight the radical islamic jihad terrorism. Moreover, for the past few years, there have been a significant increase in the terrorist attack from islamist extremist in the U.S.
