    "Justice Department asks appeals court to restore Trump travel ban

    Published February 06, 2017

    The Justice Department Monday asked a federal appeals court to restore President Trump's ban on travelers from seven majority-Muslim nations, the latest salvo in a legal fight headed for a possible showdown at the Supreme Court.

    The filing with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals came three days after a federal judge in Washington state halted Trump's order and granted a nationwide stay. The Justice Department filing said U.S. District Judge James Robart's order was "vastly overbroad" and said Trump's executive order was "a lawful exercise of the President's authority over the entry of aliens into the United States and the admission of refugees."

    I don't see any way Trump's EO is not totally legal and Constitutional. Amateurishly implemented, yes, but that isn't against the law.

    The EO as written also covers green card holders, who have jobs, own houses, have families with US citizen children and own firearms in the US. The EO has removed their 5th Amendment rights to due process.
