President Trump’s most recent travel ban has been blocked by a federal judge in Hawaii, much to the president’s dismay. The ban was set to go into effect just hours after the judge’s decision.
Trump expressed his frustration over the decision during a Nashville rally.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer addressed the revised travel ban during a Thursday afternoon press conference:
Spicer quoted both the president as well as the legal statute that gave Trump authority over immigration.
Spicer also read a quote from the Department of Justice (DOJ) that also disagreed with the ruling to block the ban.
Spicer also explained the administration’s behind the new ban:
Reading a statement from the DOJ, Spicer said, “The danger is real, and the law is clear. The president was elected to change our broken immigration system.”
