A judge blocks Donald Trump’s revised travel ban
JUST hours before it was set to go into effect at the stroke of midnight on March 16th, Donald Trump’s second try at an executive order to pause travel from several Muslim-majority countries was batted down by a federal district court in Hawaii. Judge Derrick Watson, nominated to the bench by Barack Obama and confirmed unanimously by the Senate in 2013, was unimpressed with Mr Trump’s attempt to immunise his revised ban from its illicit discriminatory origin. The 43-page order did not mince words. “The illogic of the Government’s contentions”, Mr Watson wrote, “is palpable”.
The judge began by noting that the new ban differed in certain respects from the first. Travel restrictions on America’s lawful permanent residents and on people already holding visas abroad were lifted. Language suggesting that Christian refugees would be favoured over Muslims was deleted. And Iraq was removed from the list of banned countries, leaving six: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. But Mr Watson wrote that the plaintiffs made a good case for their claim that the heart of Mr Trump’s order—a 90-day suspension of all travel from those countries, and a 120-day pause on the entry of new...

Hawaii judge halts new Trump travel ban, setting stage for epic legal battle
A livid Trump said he would take his case to the supreme court if necessary, as a temporary restraining order halted the ban just hours before it came into effect
Donald Trump appears set on a collision course with federal judges, vowing to fight them to the end after a district court in Hawaii issued the second block in as many months on his proposed travel ban on visitors from Muslim-majority countries.
The dramatic clashes between Trump and the judiciary came just hours before the president’s revised executive order was due to come into effect at midnight. Had it stood, the travel ban would have put a complete stop to arrivals of refugees from anywhere in the world as well as newcomers from six predominantly Muslim countries. Continue reading...

A judge in Hawaii just put a restraining order on Trump's new travel ban
Sean Spicer/Twitter
HONOLULU/GREENBELT, Md. (Reuters) - US District Judge Derrick Watson on Wednesday said he would put an emergency halt on President Donald Trump's revised travel ban that placed temporary entry restrictions on refugees and travelers from six Muslim-majority countries.
A judge in Maryland said he also might issue an emergency order on Wednesday in advance of the ban.
State attorneys general and refugee resettlement agencies across the United States have filed several lawsuits asking courts to issue emergency stays on Trump’s executive order.
The order was signed on March 6 after an initial, broader ban was suspended by federal courts.
The revised order temporarily bars entry to the United States of most refugees as well as travelers from six Muslim-majority countries. The Republican president has said the policy is critical for national security.
The federal judges at three hearings on Wednesday strongly questioned lawyers for both the administration and its critics, pressing on the question of who specifically would be harmed by the revamped executive order.
Trump signed the first order a week after his Jan. 20 inauguration. It temporarily banned travelers from seven mostly Muslim countries in addition to most refugees and took effect immediately, causing chaos and protests at airports across the country and around the globe.
After the ban was targeted by more than two dozen lawsuits arguing it discriminated against Muslims and violated the US Constitution, it was struck down by a federal judge in Seattle in a ruling upheld by a US appeals court.
The White House went back to the drawing board and narrowed its scope.
The new order bars citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the country for 90 days, but Iraq is no longer on the list. Refugees are still barred for 120 days, but an indefinite ban on all refugees from Syria was dropped.
The revised ban also excludes legal permanent residents and existing visa holders. It provides a series of waivers for various categories of immigrants with ties to the United States. The government has maintained in court that the changes resolve any legal issues with the original order.

Prove harm
Three cases against the new ban moved forward on Wednesday.
In Maryland, refugee resettlement agencies represented by the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Immigration Law Center argued in court for a restraining order.
Separately, Hawaii's attorney general sued, arguing the states' universities and tourist economy would be harmed by the travel restrictions and also asked that the law be enjoined.
In Washington state, a group of plaintiffs applying for immigrant visas asked US District Judge James Robart in Seattle - who suspended the first ban - to stop the new order.
Washington state, joined by California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York and Oregon, said in court filings they supported the plaintiffs in Seattle.
To move forward with the lawsuits, the states and groups have to prove harm, or "standing," which some legal experts have said is difficult to prove because of all the exemptions and waivers in the new order.
The government says the new order only applies to people outside the United States who have not entered the country and do not have constitutional rights.
"Who has the standing in this case if anyone?" US District Judge Derrick Watson asked Hawaii's attorneys.
A group of 58 tech companies, including Airbnb, Lyft and Dropbox, filed a "friend of the court' brief in the case saying the order hurt their ability to recruit the best talent from around the world. A longer list of companies - that included giants like Apple, Facebook and Google - filed a brief opposing the first ban in a different court challenge brought by Washington state, which is ongoing.
At the court hearing in Greenbelt, Maryland, on Wednesday US District Judge Theodore Chuang pushed on the question of who would be harmed by the order. Chuang said he would try to issue a written ruling on Wednesday, before the order is implemented, but said it might come afterward.

Muslim ban?
Detractors say the intent behind both Trump's first and second orders was to discriminate against Muslims.
Colleen Sinzdak arguing at the Honolulu hearing for the state of Hawaii said there was "more than ample evidence this ban was motivated by religious animus." She pointed to Trump's promise during his election campaign of "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States."
The Trump administration has disputed that allegation, saying many Muslim-majority countries are not included in the ban.
The text of the order does not mention Islam and the government has said the courts should only look at the actual document, not outside comments by Trump or his aides.
The judge at the Hawaii hearing said the language of the new order did not give "any particular religious feeling or connotation."
If the new ban goes ahead, advocacy groups said lawyers would head again to international airports to assist anyone who might be improperly detained or prevented from entering, said Betsy Fisher, the policy director at the International Refugee Assistance Project.
Since the order included a 10-day lag before taking effect, far fewer people are likely to be caught out while traveling.
"There are going to be attorneys on the ground and ready to respond," Fisher said in a telephone interview. "But we're anticipating not seeing the same kind of chaos because there was an announcement in advance."

Hawaii judge to issue ruling on revised Trump travel ban before it takes effect
Maryland judge in separate lawsuit, filed by ACLU and other groups representing immigrants, also promises ruling but does not indicate timing
A federal judge in Hawaii has said he will rule on Wednesday on whether to halt Donald Trump’s revised immigration ban before it takes effect at 12.01am.
US district judge Derrick Watson is one of several judges hearing arguments over the ban in the final hours before its implementation. He said on Wednesday afternoon after hearing oral arguments that he would issue a written ruling before 6pm Hawaii time. Hawaii was the first state to challenge the second version of Trump’s travel ban, after the first was halted by court order.

Bill Pugliano/Getty Images
(Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court said on Monday it would hold a hearing in May over a Hawaii federal judge's order that blocked President Donald Trump's revised travel restrictions on citizens from six Muslim-majority countries.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals previously upheld a Seattle judge's block of Trump's first travel order. The appeals court did not say on Monday which three judges would preside over the latest appeal.
Trump signed the revised ban last month, in a bid to overcome legal problems with his January executive order that caused chaos at airports and sparked mass protests before its enforcement was halted in February.
Trump has said the travel ban is needed for national security.
The state of Hawaii challenged the revised travel directive as unconstitutional religious discrimination. Hawaii and other opponents of the ban claim it is based on Trump's election campaign promise of "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States."
The Justice Department has also appealed a ruling from a Maryland judge against Trump's revised executive order. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia scheduled a hearing in that case for May 8.

Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

REUTERS/Hugh Gentry
HONOLULU — A federal judge in Hawaii decided Wednesday to extend his order blocking President Donald Trump's travel ban.
US District Judge Derrick Watson issued the longer-lasting hold on the ban just hours after hearing arguments.
Hawaii says the policy discriminates against Muslims and hurts the state's tourist-dependent economy. The implied message in the revised ban is like a "neon sign flashing 'Muslim ban, Muslim ban'" that the government didn't bother to turn off, state Attorney General Douglas Chin told the judge.
Extending the temporary order until the state's lawsuit was resolved would ensure the constitutional rights of Muslim citizens across the US are vindicated after "repeated stops and starts of the last two months," the state has said.
The government says the ban falls within the president's power to protect national security. Hawaii has made only generalized concerns about its effect on students and tourism, Department of Justice attorney Chad Readler told the judge via telephone.
The Trump administration had asked Watson to narrow his ruling to cover only the part of Trump's executive order that suspends new visas for people from six Muslim-majority countries. Readler said a freeze on the US refugee program had no effect on Hawaii.
Watson rejected that argument, preventing the administration from halting the flow of refugees.
Watson said in court that the government argued for that narrower interpretation only after a federal judge in Maryland blocked the six-nation travel ban but said it wasn't clear that the refugee suspension was similarly motivated by religious bias.
Getty Images
Watson noted that the government said 20 refugees were resettled in Hawaii since 2010.
"Is this a mathematical exercise that 20 isn't enough? ... What do I make of that?" the judge asked Readler.
The government attorney replied that 20 was simply a small number of refugees.
"In whose judgment?" Watson asked.
Hawaii was the first state to sue over Trump's revised ban. The imam of a Honolulu mosque joined the challenge, arguing that the ban would prevent his Syrian mother-in-law from visiting family in Hawaii.
In his arguments, Chin quoted Trump's comments that the revised travel ban was a "watered down" version of the original.
REUTERS/Eric Thayer
"We cannot fault the president for being politically incorrect, but we do fault him for being constitutionally incorrect," Chin said.
Earlier this month, Watson prevented the federal government from suspending new visas for people from Somalia, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen and freezing the nation's refugee program.
His ruling came just hours before the federal government planned to start enforcing Trump's executive order.
Trump called Watson's previous ruling an example of "unprecedented judicial overreach."
Hawaii's ruling would not be directly affected by a decision siding with the federal government in the Maryland case, legal experts said. The 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals set a hearing for May 8 to consider the administration's appeal.
"What a ruling in 4th Circuit in favor of the administration would do is create a split in authority between federal courts in different parts of the country," said Richard Primus, a professor of constitutional law at the University of Michigan law school.
"Cases with splits in authority are cases the US Supreme Court exists to resolve," he said.

US District Court, District of Hawaii
About a dozen deputies from the US Marshals Service have been sent to provide 24-hour protection for the federal judge who implemented an emergency stop to a new version of President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban, according to Hawaii News Now.
US District Judge Derrick Watson has reportedly received death threats after ruling that Trump's executive order — which denied people from six majority Muslim nations from entering the US, and allowed the government to limit refugee intake from any country — was significantly founded on "religious animus." 
"The illogic of the Government’s contentions is palpable," Watson wrote in his ruling.
Watson also went so far as to tell  the federal lawyers who protested his ruling that "there is nothing unclear" about his remarks on Sunday. 
FBI spokesperson Michele Ernst told  BuzzFeed News  the agency was prepared to assist in the investigation.
"The US Marshals Service is responsible for the protection of federal judicial officials, including judges and prosecutors, and we take that responsibility very seriously," the agency told BuzzFeed News in a statement. "While we do not discuss our specific security measures, we continuously review the security measures in place for all federal judges and take appropriate steps to provide additional protection when it is warranted."

336 d ago Business Insider :: A federal judge in Virginia ruled for Trump's travel ban — it's more likely than ever it goes to the Supreme Court
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Thomson Reuters
(Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge in Virginia ruled on Friday that President Donald Trump's travel ban was justified, increasing the likelihood the measure will go before the Supreme Court as the decision took an opposing view to courts in Maryland and Hawaii that have halted the order.
U.S. District Court Judge Anthony Trenga rejected arguments by Muslim plaintiffs who claimed Trump's March 6 executive order temporarily banning the entry of all refugees and travelers from six Muslim-majority countries was discriminatory.
The decision went against two previous court rulings that put an emergency halt to the order before it was set to take effect on March 16. The order remains halted.
Trump has said he plans to appeal those unfavorable rulings to the U.S. Supreme Court if needed, and differing opinions by lower courts give more grounds for the highest court to take up the case.
Trenga, an appointee of Republican President George W. Bush, said the complaint backed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim civil rights group, found that more than 20 individuals who brought the suit had been able to show they were harmed by the travel ban since they might be unable to reunite with their relatives.
But he also ruled that Trump's revised order, which replaced a more sweeping version signed on Jan. 27 and rejected by courts, fell within the president's authority to make decisions about immigration.
REUTERS/Eric Thayer
He said that since the order did not mention religion, the court could not look behind it at Trump's statements about a "Muslim ban" to determine what was in the "drafter's heart of hearts."
Trump has said the ban is necessary to protect the country from terrorist attacks, but his first order was halted by a federal judge in Seattle and a U.S. appeals court in San Francisco due to concerns it violated the U.S. Constitution's prohibition against religious bias.
The Justice Department praised the Virginia decision saying in a statement, "As the court correctly explains, the president's executive order falls well within his authority to safeguard the nation's security." CAIR said it would appeal the decision to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
A ruling by U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii - an appointee of Democratic President Barack Obama - put a stop to the two central sections of the revised ban that blocked travelers from six countries and refugees, while leaving other parts of the order in place.
U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang in Maryland, also an Obama appointee, only put a halt to the section on travelers.
The Virginia lawsuit sought to strike down the revised ban in its entirety.
Watson scheduled a hearing for Wednesday to decide whether his temporary order blocking the travel and refugee restrictions should be converted into a more formal preliminary injunction. The Justice Department has said it would oppose that bid.
The government has appealed Chuang's decision in Maryland, also to the 4th circuit, and a hearing in that case is scheduled for May 8. The Hawaii case was brought by state attorneys' general opposed to the ban and the Maryland case was filed by refugee advocacy groups.
Other lawsuits against the ban continue to move forward around the country. Also on Friday, the Southern Poverty Law Center and other groups filed a new complaint in U.S. District Court in Washington D.C. on behalf of Muslim community organizations.

Federal judges blocked President Trump's revised travel ban. The ruling was the second time Trump's travel ban was blocked by a federal judge, dealing a blow to one of the president's biggest campaign promises. The revised travel ban would have shut down the US refugee program for 120 days and barred citizens from six majority-Muslim nations. Here's how many refugees have entered the US during Trump's first seven weeks.

345 d ago The New Yorker :: Trump, Defeated Again on the Travel Ban, Is Still Trapped in His Campaign
Read on The New Yorker | Share | Tweet

President Trump’s first travel ban was worded vaguely and took effect suddenly, and so the legal responses to it—the public-interest attorneys hurrying to airports, and huddling with family members and laptops in food courts—were a remarkable improvisation. The second ban, against which a federal judge in Hawaii issued a temporary restraining order, on Wednesday night, was announced in advance, and the Administration’s opponents were prepared. The Hawaii case was argued by Neal Katyal, perhaps the most famed progressive litigator of his generation, who was both a principal Deputy Solicitor General under President Obama and the lead attorney in the Hamdan v. Rumsfeld case, which dismantled the military commissions that had governed Guantánamo Bay. The plaintiff was handpicked, too: Ismail Elshikh, the imam of the Muslim Association of Hawaii, whose Syrian mother-in-law was subject to the ban. Elshikh wrote in his pleading that his children are “deeply affected by the knowledge that the United States—their own country—would discriminate against individuals who are of the same ethnicity as them, including members of their own family.” In the precision of this testimony, you could sense that the rushed and panicked responders to the first ban had developed a structure, and refined their arguments.

352 d ago Business Insider‘We’ve got to speak up’: A federal judge will hear Hawaii’s lawsuit against Trump’s new travel ban
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

A federal judge in Hawaii will hear arguments regarding President Donald Trump's revised executive order restricting travel from six majority-Muslim countries. Doug Chin, Hawaii Attorney General, spoke about the travel ban and drew a parallel to the Japanese-American situation 75 years ago. Following is a transcript of the video.
75 years ago you had — you had another disenfranchised group where nobody was speaking up for them and, that was Japanese-Americans here. And so I just feel very strongly that today in 2017 we've got to speak up.
There are no boundaries to, to this order. So, so unfortunately if there is no check against what the, what the president can do in an executive order, that’s nothing — there's nothing that stops him from expanding the order further or, or extending it and saying, “you know well, it's 120 days, we'll do another 120 days.” And then all of a sudden it's permanent.
If we're going to have national security, and that's super important, we, we just can't have it under a framework where people from a certain nationality are excluded. That's just something that I, I don't think any of us on our watch want to be saying that we stood by and were silent when that was going on.

Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon asked a federal court late Wednesday to join a lawsuit filed by Washington state against an immigration ban imposed by President Donald Trump.
Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum said in the motion that Oregon also needs protection from the ban on immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries, which she said would harm Oregon's businesses, residents, universities, health care and economy.
The lawsuit filed by Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson on Jan. 30 resulted in a judge suspending Trump's temporary ban. Minnesota previously joined the lawsuit.
Rosenblum wrote in the motion filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington that if Washington and Minnesota prevail, the court might craft a limited remedy instead of a nationwide injunction, which would not address the harm caused to Oregon.
Both Rosenblum and Ferguson said in recent interviews with The Associated Press that they are increasingly sharing information and consulting with each other and with other Democratic counterparts, as the White House and Congress try to roll back former President Barack Obama's policies and steer a conservative course for the nation.
At stake are health care, the environment, immigrant rights, marijuana legalization and many other issues.
"What I am very proud of is that state attorneys general are stepping up to the plate," Rosenblum said, citing efforts by her counterparts, including in Virginia, Massachusetts, New York and Hawaii.
Rosenblum told AP that Oregon is also readying for a court battle in case the federal government tries to curtail abortion rights.
In particular, Rosenblum worries that the federal government will try to force states to restrict abortion rights by cutting funding for Planned Parenthood. The Hyde Amendment already prevents federal dollars from funding abortions, she said, but Planned Parenthood also offers treatment for sexually transmitted diseases and preventive health care. She said she already has staffers researching a possible response.
"The penalizing of an organization that provides abortions but that does a huge amount of other very, very important health care, to treat our citizens, absolutely, we're going to push back against that to the greatest extent possible," Rosenblum said.
Attorneys general, particularly from more liberal states, are coordinating more via informal phone calls and emails, and in meetings such as those of the Democratic Attorneys General Association, which Rosenblum co-chairs.
Trump has promised to issue a revised travel ban, saying it's needed to keep America safe. Ferguson said in a telephone interview late Tuesday that his team is ready to take further action.
"When it comes out, we will scrutinize it to see if it is constitutional and lawful," Ferguson said. "If it is not, you can be sure we'll be following up."
The events before and after Trump's signing of the executive order highlight the new level of communication among liberal states' attorneys general. The Democratic Attorneys General Association had just finished holding a meeting in Florida when Trump signed the order, on Jan. 27, a Friday.
Ferguson was flying back to Seattle but already had lined up a team of five attorneys and support staff ready to pounce. As travelers from the banned countries were detained at airports across America and were prevented from boarding U.S.-bound flights, Ferguson's team worked through the weekend.
"The pace for those 72 hours, to say it was intense would be significant understatement," Ferguson said. "We felt every hour mattered."
On Jan. 30, they asked a federal court for a temporary restraining order to prevent enforcement of Trump's order, claiming it was unconstitutional. Rosenblum said she helped organize a statement from 18 attorneys general supporting Ferguson's lawsuit.
Eric Schneiderman, attorney general for New York, which was one of those 18 states and which also filed a lawsuit, said attorneys general are having an "awakening" regarding the Trump administration.
Rosenblum said Ferguson deserves praise for being "first out of the gate" and that she feels no rivalry about being first to stand up against White House orders that are seen as illegal or unconstitutional.
"There's going to be plenty to go around," Rosenblum said.

Instead, he continues to tweet from his personal phone, even during national security briefings . He has used Twitter to call people haters, dummies, and losers , and to effectively subvert traditional media outlets. For more than a year he has filled our timelines with insults , turning Twitter into a toxic swamp. It’s as if the slime demon from FernGully got his hands on a Samsung Galaxy instead of a timbersaw.

369 d ago SB Nation :: Cardinals' Dexter Fowler expresses disappointment over Trump's travel ban
Read on SB Nation | Share | Tweet

His family has been affected by the executive order.
Dexter Fowler is one of the latest athletes to express disappointment at President Donald Trump’s currently stalled travel ban.
Fowler’s wife, Darya Baghbani, was born in Iran, one of seven majority-Muslim countries that the executive order restricted visas from. The couple was planning on bringing their daughter, Naya, to visit family, but is now putting off the trip. The ban is currently not in effect after a ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals . Trump has said he could replace the stalled ban with an entirely new executive order.
Still, as ESPN’s Mark Saxon reported , the climate of uncertainty has the Fowlers feeling like it’s not “the right time” to travel. “It’s huge. Especially anytime you’re not able to see family, it’s unfortunate,” Fowler told ESPN.
The Fowler family was further affected when his sister-in-law postponed her return to the United States from a business trip to Qatar, because she was worried about detainment.
A number of St. Louis Cardinals fans reacted extremely negatively to his comments, some telling Fowler he wasn’t supposed to have an opinion and to just play ball, while others told him to go back to Chicago. Fowler addressed the reaction on his Twitter.
Welp.Since I have a nice little chunk of people who hate me cuz I have an opinion.I'm going to do a nice giveaway away for the good people.
— Dexter Fowler (@DexterFowler) February 19, 2017
For the record. I know this is going to sound absolutely crazy, but athletes are humans, and not properties of the team they work for.
— Dexter Fowler (@DexterFowler) February 19, 2017
Fowler’s not the first athlete to be affected or speak out about the ban. A number of NBA players, coaches, and other figures, including commissioner Adam Silver , expressed concerns and criticism. Earlier this month, Iran banned the United States’ wrestling team from this year’s World Cup when the executive order was issued, but later changed their minds after the order was blocked. At the World Cup on Friday, Iranian fans gave a warm welcome to the U.S. , even chanting wrestler Jordan Burroughs’ name.
Fowler spent last season with the Chicago Cubs, playing an important role in their World Series victory.

375 d ago Business InsiderTrump administration to appeal Seattle federal judge's review of travel ban
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Kevin Lamarque/Reuters
The U.S. Justice Department said on Monday a Seattle federal judge should not conduct further proceedings until after a U.S. appeals court reviews the suspension of President Donald Trump's travel ban from seven-Muslim majority countries, according to a court document.
Trump's order, which he called a national security measure meant to head off attacks by Islamist militants, barred people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering for 90 days and all refugees for 120 days, except refugees from Syria, who were banned indefinitely.
U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle suspended Trump's order after its legality was challenged by Washington state, eliciting a barrage of angry Twitter messages from Trump against the judge and the court system. That ruling was upheld by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco last week, raising questions about Trump's next step.
An unidentified judge on the 9th Circuit on Friday requested that the court’s 25 full-time judges vote on whether the temporary block of Trump’s travel ban should be reheard before an 11-judge panel, known as en banc review. The 9th Circuit asked both sides to file briefs by Thursday.
The Justice Department did not say on Monday what position it would take on the 9th Circuit's en banc decision, but indicated that the outcome of the process "will likely inform" what additional proceedings are necessary in Seattle.
In a separate court filing on Monday, Washington's attorney general said a Seattle judge should immediately allow discovery into the merits of its case.
Robart has scheduled a hearing to take place on the issue later on Monday.

SEATTLE/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge on Monday rejected a Justice Department request to suspend Seattle courtroom proceedings over President Donald Trump's temporary ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries until an appeals court has fully reviewed it.
The U.S. Justice Department had argued that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals should review the nationwide suspension of Trump's order before more proceedings take place, including potential discovery into the president's motives for the action.
Trump's Jan. 27 order, which he called a national security measure meant to head off attacks by Islamist militants, barred people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering for 90 days and all refugees for 120 days, except refugees from Syria, who were banned indefinitely.
U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle suspended Trump's entire order across the country on Feb. 3 after its legality was challenged by Washington state, eliciting a barrage of angry Twitter messages from Trump against the judge and the court system.
That ruling was upheld by the 9th Circuit in San Francisco last week, raising questions about Trump's next step.
At a Seattle court hearing on Monday, Robart said he saw no reason to slow down the case, adding he was "surprised" the Justice Department would seek a delay given Trump's tweets over the 9th Circuit ruling. Robart ordered both sides to prepare to move forward.
Separately, a Virginia federal judge on Monday issued a preliminary injunction against portions of Trump's order that dealt with visa holders. That has no immediate effect as Trump's ban has already been suspended by Robart's Feb. 3 ruling.
Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring in a Monday night conference call with reporters described the order as "unlawful, unconstitutional, and un-American," and said it was conceived in "religious bigotry."
Following the 9th Circuit's decision, Trump announced the possibility of a "brand new order" that could be issued as soon as this week. Trump gave no details of any new ban he is considering.
He might rewrite the original order to explicitly exclude green card holders, or permanent residents, a congressional aide familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified, told Reuters last week.
Neither side discussed any new executive order at the Monday court hearing. White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters the administration would "maintain all options" regarding the legal strategy, including another order.

The Justice Department did not say on Monday what position it would take on the 9th Circuit's en banc decision, or whether it would ultimately appeal the suspension to the Supreme Court.
In a court filing on Monday, Washington's attorney general said a Seattle judge should immediately allow discovery into the merits of its case.
"We would oppose discovery," Justice Department attorney Michelle Bennett said at the hearing, which was conducted on a teleconference played aloud in Robart's courtroom in Seattle.
In ruling from the bench, Robart did not make clear what the next steps in Seattle would be.
