U.S. President Donald Trump urged his administration to seek a reinforced version of his travel ban proposal following a weekend terrorist attack in London, and pressed for an expedited judicial review by the nation’s top court. What is widely called a ‘travel ban’ is an Executive Order 13769, titled Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States. The Homeland Security travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen as potentially representing terrorist threat.
“The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original travel ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.,” Trump, referring to the U.S. Supreme Court, wrote in a series of early morning tweets on the issue.
“The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down travel ban before the Supreme Court – & seek much tougher version!” tweeted Trump, who as president oversees the department.
