President Trump Will Issue Revised Executive Order On Refugees

The Trump administration will issue a new order on the admission of refugees from countries with high instances of terror, after the original order’s shoddy drafting and implementation solicited a bevy of court challenges.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling temporarily suspending the order’s implementation last week. In a brief filed Thursday before the 9th Circuit, lawyers for the U.S. Department of Justice said the president will issue a revised executive order, as opposed to pursuing further appeals.
“Rather than continuing this litigation, the President intends in the near future to rescind the Order and replace it with a new, substantially revised Executive Order to eliminate what the panel erroneously thought were constitutional concerns,” the filing reads. “In so doing, the President will clear the way for immediately protecting the country rather than pursuing further, potentially time-consuming litigation.”
The Justice Department asked the court to halt its consideration of the current case until Trump issues a new order, at which point they hope the 9th Circuit will overturn the decision upholding the order’s temporary suspension. They did not indicate when a new order is expected, but promised to furnish it for the court as soon as it is promulgated.
