Trump will issue a rewritten travel ban next week

The Trump administration is dropping its appeal over the suspension of its controversial travel ban order, suspended earlier by a federal court for potentially violating the constitution, wire agencies have reported.

"We're issuing a new executive action next week that will comprehensively protect our country", Trump said, before referring to the old order: "So we'll be going along the one path and hopefully winning that".

"Instead, the government asks that the Court hold its consideration of the case until a new Order is issued and respectfully requests that the panel opinion be vacated at that time", DOJ attorneys wrote.

"We can tailor the order to that decision", he said.

The seven nations listed in President Trump's order have Muslim majorities, but Trump's detractors have been the ones to make this an issue, while ignoring the fact that many other countries with Muslim majorities (Indonesia, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Egypt, etc.) were not part of the travel ban.

Race against the weather to avoid disaster at California's Oroville Dam
Officials said they plan to use bags of rocks to plug the hole in the emergency spillway, but the situation is still precarious. Governor Jerry Brown has sent a letter to President Donald Trump requesting further federal aid for the Oroville Dam emergency.

The latest judge to feel his wrath was Seattle's James Robart, a Republican appointed to the federal court by former President George W. Bush. He described the ruling that led to the stay as "incorrect and unsafe", and the appeals court's decision to uphold it as a "bad decision".

Trump also said on Thursday that he is struggling with a program President Barack Obama began to provide work permits to people brought to the US illegally as children, called Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals.

"The executive order, of course, does not say in express terms that it is favoring Christians and disfavoring Muslims". Shortly after the Executive Order was announced people descended on airports in droves to protest the detention of people entering America from the aforementioned seven countries. "We'll be going along the one path and hopefully winning that", Trump said.

The immigration order, issued on January 27, led to confusion in USA airports and prompted global protests and complaints from businesses.

The director of policy at the International Refugee Assistance Project Betsy Fisher said, "The executive order doesn't say "we're banning Muslims".

Syria talks in Astana 'to be held behind closed doors'
Jordan will also be represented by a "high-level delegation", government spokesman Mohamed Momani said. Disputes over the agenda have helped to torpedo previous rounds of Syria peace talks.

During the news conference, Trump said that about 80 percent of the 9th Circuit's arguments had been overturned by the Supreme Court from 2010 to 2015.

Trump said Thursday that he did not order that conversation, but he "would have directed" him to have that conversation had he known.

Michelle Bennett, a Justice Department lawyer, told Robart there was no basis for speeding up the trial, arguing states are not being harmed because there's a temporary injunction in place. Honestly, it was never hard to fathom the implications of this ban on tourism and business travel to the United States. 45 and various other voices in support of the Executive Order maintain that it is not a Muslim ban, but a ban of people who have the potential to become radicalized from entering the country from countries where Muslim faith is the majority. Who knows. The Trump administration is obviously in an untenable position.

"Given the gravity of the states' constitutional allegations, defendants' stated national security concerns and the public interests at stake, the states respectfully submit that discovery should proceed without delay", the state lawyers said in a legal brief. But Washington state and Minnesota challenged the constitutionality of the order, saying the ban illegally targets Muslims.
