PostSubject: Can Trump's Travel Ban Be Revoked? Justice Department Challenges Seattle Judge's Halt On Executive Order   Sun 5 Feb - 3:40

The White House initially issued a statement calling Robart’s order “outrageous,” but a revised statement omitted the word. The Justice Department now plans to file an emergency stay on Robart’s ruling.
"At the earliest possible time, the Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay of this outrageous order and defend the executive order of the President, which we believe is lawful and appropriate," White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement. "The president's order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people."
While issuing his order on a nationwide block of Trump’s executive order — which puts in place a 90-day ban on visa-holders from seven nations, an indefinite ban on Syrian refugee admissions, and a 120-day ban on the entire refugee program — Robart wrote that the states have shown “immediate and irreparable injury” caused by Trump’s move.
“The executive order adversely affects the states’ residents in areas of employments, education, business, family relations, and freedom to travel,” he wrote.
“The work of the court is not to create policy or judge the wisdom of any particular policy promoted by the other two branches,” Robart wrote. “The work of the judiciary, and this court, is limited to ensuring that the actions taken by the other two branches comport with our country’s laws, and more importantly, our constitution.”
