Ilya Somin
Earlier today, the Supreme Court issued an order dismissing as moot Trump v. International Refugee Assistance Project, one of the two cases before it challenging President Donald Trump’s travel ban executive order, which forbade entry into the United States by citizens of six Muslim-majority nations. The Court emphasized that they are not ruling on the merits of the legal challenges to the order, but merely choosing not to hear the case, because the order, which was intended to last for 90 days, has now expired, and the controversy over it is now “moot.”.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better! The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct! We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years. Must be proactive & nasty!feedback

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

The extraordinary efforts the administration is taking in pursuit of the Muslim ban stand in stark contrast to its unwillingness to take a single step to protect 800,000 Dreamers.feedback

Kim Taehoon

I think this travel ban is being seen by North Korean officials as an explicitly inflammatory measure. When we informed them of the need to pull out, there was a sense of understanding but at the same time, there was a sense of disappointment on both sides really.feedback

Kim Taehoon

I didn't want any of the staff or any of the colleagues to potentially face issues when they were getting out. Because of the uncertainty of the travel ban, we don't know if we will be able to do on-the-ground work anymore.feedback

Doug Jones

If that young man was a Muslim, the president – within seconds – would have been tweeting out, This is why we need a travel ban! Radical Islamic terrorist.' Yet he will not criticize people who support him. It's wrong and it's unconscionable that he won't. We saw this back in the 1960s, where our elected officials – George Wallace or Bull Connor – used words and gave tacit support to let people do things.feedback

Michael Moore

I started wondering, If the way we want go is the way of Trump's travel ban, what if that had happened months or years earlier?' If Trump's America existed six years ago, there may not have been any Dr. Mona. Her crime was that she was a Muslim and Iraqi, and we may not have ever found out the truth. The repercussions of allowing Trump and his ilk to get away with this, it goes way beyond the things we can imagine. I need to tell that story.feedback

Heather Nauert

I saw in one major newspaper today where people were talking about, oh, there are neat experiences in North Korea, which makes it sound like it's a fantastic place to go. Let me use this as an opportunity to remind people: It is not safe for Americans to go to North Korea. Let me remind you, we still have Americans who are being detained in North Korea. We don't want to see any more people go to North Korea and be detained, and that is why we put that travel ban in place.feedback

Will Horton - CAPA Centre for Aviation

The aviation industry has been trying to come together with a united message to governments and stakeholders about regulation and supporting the industry. That was dealt a first blow from the travel ban and then a second from the large electronics ban.feedback

Ilya Somin

Earlier tonight, federal District Court Judge Derrick Watson of the District of Hawaii issued an injunction against key parts of the Trump administration’s implementation of the the president’s travel ban executive order, barring citizens of six Muslim majority nations from entering the United States for 90 days, and all refugees for 120 days. The judge’s ruling prevents application of the travel ban against “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States.” It also protects refugees who have an established relationship with American refugee sponsorship organizations that have given them a “formal assurance” of assistance with resettlement in the United States.feedback

Matt Bevin

It is fascinating that the very same West Coast liberals who rail against the president's executive order, that protects our nation from foreign terrorists, have now contrived their own travel ban aimed at punishing states who don't fall in lockstep with their far-left political ideology.feedback

Mark Takano

President Trump has fought in court for his executive order punishing cities that welcome immigrant families, and he has fought in court for his Muslim Ban, twice. But today he is refusing to fight for the American workers who he repeatedly promised to protect.feedback

Joe Scarborough

For some reason, we've seen this time and time again with Mika. I will insult him over the Muslim ban or say he's a racist, all these things through the year, and for some reason, he always goes after Mika, and it's always personal with Mika. And he packed about five lies into the tweets which is very productive, two tweets to pack five or six lies into two tweets, but yesterday was another example of how deeply personal he is. He attacks women, because he fears women.feedback

Naureen Shah - Amnesty International USA

Separating families based on these definitions is simply heartless. It further proves the callous and discriminatory nature of Trump's Muslim ban.feedback

Sally Yates

I came ultimately to the conclusion that our defending this travel ban would require me to send lawyers of the Justice Department to court to say this ban had nothing to do with religion – [that] it was all based on national security. And I did not believe that to be a defense that was grounded in truth and I couldn't send Department of Justice lawyers in to defend something based on a defense that I did not believe was grounded in truth. There are facts here that should be alarming to us as a country that falls short of facts that would establish a basis for impeachment or for prosecution.feedback

Mohammad Javad Zarif

We always believed that the Muslim ban that President Trump imposed soon after assuming office had no basis in facts and would not help fight terrorism. For some terrorism and support for terrorism is measured by the amount of arms they buy from the U.S, and not by actually being involved in acts of terrorism.feedback

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

This order, properly construed, should really allow for only the narrowest implementation of any part of the ban. It's going to be really important for us to make sure the government abides by the terms of the order and does not try to use it as a backdoor into implementing the full- scale Muslim ban.feedback

Wim Weiwel

I am disappointed by the Supreme Court's decision today to allow a limited form of President Trump's travel ban to be implemented until the court hears the case and makes a final ruling.feedback

Pete Williams

The U.S. Supreme Court heads into Monday, its last day of the current term, with two important questions so far unanswered: What's to become of President Donald Trump's travel ban and will 80-year-old Justice Anthony Kennedy retire?feedback

Kari Hong

This decision is a true compromise. It is true that the travel ban is allowed to go into effect, but the Supreme Court substantially narrowed who could be denied entry.feedback

Rebecca Miller

I think that they want to stop the travel ban based on people claiming a certain religion. I don't think it's about religion, it's about safety. I'm very interested to see the ban put into effect and for a couple of years kind of monitor it and see how it goes.feedback

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

And yet again, these revisions underline that the one thing the president has consistently wanted throughout is a Muslim ban.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Well, as predicted, the 9th Circuit did it again – Ruled against the TRAVEL BAN at such a dangerous time in the history of our country. S.C. People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!feedback

Leon E. Panetta

From the beginning, the administration has said the travel ban has been about the effective vetting of people coming to this country. They should stop with this attack on the courts with the silly ban and get on with doing a thorough assessment of the vetting process, if that's the purpose.feedback

Sadiq Khan

When Theresa May first invited him on a state visit to our country at a time when he was proposing a travel ban on Muslims and changing the American policy on refugees, I said it was inappropriate to be rolling out the red carpet for Donald Trump … nothing has changed my mind.feedback

Jamil Dakwar

It's hard to take Ambassador Haley seriously on U.S. support for human rights in light of Trump administration actions like the Muslim ban and immigration crackdowns. The United States must get its own house in order and make human rights at home a priority – then, it can begin to credibly demand the same of other countries abroad.feedback

Donald J. Trump

People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN! Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible–at least very, very tough to get into the United States? If you were a Muslim, you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C. Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his 'no reason to be alarmed' statement. We will be there.feedback

Donald J. Trump

People, the lawyers, and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN! At least seven dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!feedback

Sean Spicer

This is not a Muslim ban, it's not a travel ban, it's a vetting system to keep America safe. It can't be a ban if you're letting a million people in. If 325,000 people from another country can come in, that is by nature not a ban.feedback

Peter Bergen

Shortly after the news broke Saturday evening about a possible terrorist attack in London, President Trump tweeted: “We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!” A good deal of the judicial opposition to the Trump [].feedback

Donald J. Trump

That's right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that won't help us protect our people!feedback

Donald J. Trump

People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN! Pathetic excuse by London mayor Sadiq Khan, who had to think fast on his 'no reason to be alarmed' statement. [Mainsteam media] is working hard to sell it! The Justice Dept should have stayed with the original travel ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to [supreme court]. The Justice Dept should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down travel ban before the supreme court – and seek much tougher version.feedback

Reza Aslan

When in the first few minutes of the terror attack in London, the President of the United States tweeted about his travel ban, I lost my cool and responded to him in a derogatory fashion. That's not like me. I should have used better language to express my shock and frustration at the president's lack of decorum and sympathy for the victims of London. I apologize for my choice of words.feedback

Mark W. Warner

If there's new procedures put in place, put those procedures in place. Don't continue to call for this travel ban, which is frankly all of the leaders in the intelligence community have said would be in effect, a slap in the face to Muslim Americans and others, and in many ways, might actually incite more incidents. Obviously there's value in the internet, we want to continue to have these connections. But there's also, we're seeing the dark side.feedback

Stephen Vladeck

These tweets are basically winking at his supporters to say, obviously, I'm only doing this so that the courts will uphold it. It makes it harder to argue this is not a Muslim ban, and more importantly, it makes it harder to argue that the president's statements should be irrelevant.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!feedback

Karen Tumlin

Again and again, our nation's courts have found that President Trump's Muslim ban is unconstitutional. We will continue to defend our plaintiffs' right to live free from fear of discriminatory treatment by the federal government.feedback

Sally Yates

Defending the constitutionality of the travel ban would require the Department of Justice to argue that the executive order had nothing to do with religion, that it was not intended to disfavor Muslims. I believed then and I believe now that resigning would have protected my personal integrity, but it would not have protected the integrity of the Department of Justice. I couldn't in good conscience send [Department of Justice] lawyers into court to advance an argument that the travel ban was unrelated to religion when the evidence of intent reflected that that was not the case.feedback

Jessica Alter

The first travel ban, the Muslim ban, put me over the edge, candidly because my father's family was in the Holocaust, and my grandmother was very active in the Belgian underground. And I just imagined, what would she do? No one on the team had used it. I would never argue that tech is a panacea. A lot of people felt galvanized and wanted to do something, and didn't think there was anything meaningful to do.feedback

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

President Trump's Muslim ban violates the Constitution, as this decision strongly reaffirms. The Constitution's prohibition on actions disfavouring or condemning any religion is a fundamental protection for all of us, and we can all be glad that the court today rejected the government's request to set that principle aside.feedback

Elizabeth Farren

There is outrage regarding the illegal Muslim ban, the global gag rule on women's health, his appalling choices in his cabinet, his appalling views on climate change, and his denigration of journalists and the free press. We are genuinely concerned about the authoritarian tone that his administration has taken.feedback

Sadek Hamid

Let's not forgot this is the man who stated last year that 'Islam hates us' and introduced the 'Muslim travel ban' on refugees and restricted visa applications from a list of Muslim majority countries.feedback

Todd Walker

We also had many more international applicants turn us down this year relative to the last three years. I cannot say definitively how much of this is attributable to the travel ban, but I suspect it played a role.feedback

Ramin Forouzandeh

Before the travel ban, I never really considered other alternatives.feedback

Neal Katyal

Last week, my friend Mr. Wall closed his argument by saying the precedent here will transcend this case and this travel ban, and I couldn't agree more. If you rule for us, you leave intact the president's powers including every decision every president has made in our lifetimes and you preserve a status quo that has existed for decades. If you rule for him, you defer to the president in a way that history teaches us is very dangerous.feedback

Stuart Bowen

I have never worked for Iraq and was not involved in any law firm activities regarding the travel ban issue.feedback

Arne Sorenson - Marriott International

That's hardly what you would do if you were really worried about the possible unconstitutional travel ban crimping your business.feedback

Dieter Freiling

We strongly condemn the Ukrainian authorities' decision to impose a travel ban on Julia Samoylova as we believe it thoroughly undermines the integrity and non-political nature of the Eurovision Song Contest and its mission to bring all nations together in friendly competition.feedback

Robert King

Has the president ever repudiated the campaign statements he made about a Muslim ban?feedback

Sean Spicer

I'm not aware of what's on the campaign website, you would have to ask them. I know how we've talked about this from the first day of this administration as a travel ban that's in this country's national security interest to make sure that the people who are coming in here are coming in here with the right motives and reasons and that we're having a public safety aspect to making sure that we're protecting our people. We've been very consistent since the first day of this administration.feedback

Theodore D. Chuang

The second executive order does not explain specifically why this extraordinary, unprecedented action is the necessary response to the existing risks. But while the travel ban bears no resemblance to any response to a national-security risk in recent history, it bears a clear resemblance to the precise action that President Trump described as effectuating his Muslim ban.feedback

Jeffrey Wall

This is not a Muslim ban. Its text doesn't have to anything to do with religion. Its operation doesn't have anything to do with religion.feedback

Narmeen Haider

In your head, a Muslim looks so different from you and has such a different life. It's easy for you to say, Oh, a travel ban? I'm going to support that,' . But when you see Muslims who go to school like you and play football like you, you start to think, Maybe I'm not going to support this policy that can completely ruin people's lives.' . We aim to bridge gaps through art. It's kind of like a bridge. When you see a beautiful mosque, and you admire that architecture, you start to admire the religion. I think you can show the beauty of the religion.feedback

Ben Johnson - Morningstar

If the injunction on the travel ban is lifted, it would apply to this program, and no one from the banned countries would be allowed to enter.feedback

Pieter Feith

There is also perhaps room for sanctions, some form of travel ban or financial measures directed specifically against the leadership of VMRO. I think the latter. Are we going to continue this charade or are we going to draw a line and say that the accession process has ended or is about to end? That's the question that I think needs to be faced.feedback

David Cameron

Obviously I regret the personal consequences for me. I loved being prime minister. I thought I was doing a reasonable job. But I think it was the right thing. The lack of a referendum was poisoning British politics and so I put that right. And that was to me the biggest problem with President Trump's travel ban. It would be seen, could be seen, as labelling whole countries as extreme and dangerous because they were predominantly Islamic. It's not a clash between civilisations that we face. That is what the extremists want us to think. This is, if you like, a war within Islam.feedback

Trevor Noah

It's 100 days in Trump time. For us, it's 15 years. It's starting to become clear that President Trump has accomplished very little of what he promised. Travel ban? Blocked. Healthcare plan? Blocked. And surprise, surprise, no one wants to pay for his wall. You don't get to just disregard the number because you don't like the current results. Because if most voters got to choose the number they preferred, well, you wouldn't be in the White House, Donald. It's true, you can't tear your eyes away from Sean Spicer. It's like watching a car crash that knows nothing about the Holocaust.feedback

John Maraganore - Alnylam Pharmaceuticals

The travel ban and immigration ban proposed by the administration are something we are strongly against. The fact that it discriminates against religions and the quality of people we like to bring into our companies from all parts of the world – that's a feature on diversity that we are all in solidarity and agreement with.feedback

Cyrus Mehri

We hope our lawsuit shows that the capricious nature of the travel ban and its destructive impact on the Iranian-American community undercuts democracy at home and abroad and makes America less safe.feedback

Frank Dieter Freiling

We strongly condemn the Ukrainian authorities' decision to impose a travel ban on Julia Samilova as we believe it thoroughly undermines the integrity and non-political nature of the Eurovision song contest and its mission to bring all nations together in friendly competition. However, preparations continue apace for the Eurovision song contest in the host city Kiev. Our top priority remains to produce a spectacular Eurovision song contest.feedback

Frank Dieter Freiling

We strongly condemn the Ukrainian authorities' decision to impose a travel ban on Yulia Samoilova as we believe it thoroughly undermines the integrity and non-political nature of the Eurovision Song Contest and its mission to bring all nations together in friendly competition. However, preparations continue apace for the Eurovision Song Contest in the host city Kyiv. Our top priority remains to produce a spectacular Eurovision Song Contest with our Member UA:PBC (Ukraine's National Public Broadcasting Company) in May.feedback

Catherine Edelman

We felt it was really important to acknowledge why they weren't able to appear at the fair. It's a quiet way of acknowledging what's going on. It's important for the art world to acknowledge the immigration ban and the effect it's having on the arts.feedback

Stephen Legomsky

This strikes me as an end run around the judicial injunctions. The injunctions prevent the implementation of a travel ban by executive order. But nothing in them specifically prohibits new rules on visa denials overseas.feedback

Jon Ola Sand

It is imperative that the Eurovision Song Contest remains free from politics and as such, due to the circumstances surrounding Julia's travel ban, we have felt it important to propose a solution that transcends such issues. We have offered Channel One Russia the opportunity for Julia to perform live via satellite as it is the EBU's intention that every broadcaster that has chosen to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest does so, as has been the case for all previous events in the contest's history.feedback

Leon Fresco

The last thing they want to do is have this travel ban issue, especially on an expedited basis, and lose again.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

In his back-and-forth with Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) made an interesting remark concerning President Trump’s attacks on the courts. Blumenthal specifically referenced Trump’s crack about the “so-called” judge who ruled against him and recalled that Trump blamed the courts for any terrorist attack if the Muslim ban was not upheld. Blumenthal said that if a litigant came before Gorsuch, he might entertain a motion for contempt. That is an interesting proposition, one that may come into play and that we will get to in a moment.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

Donald Trump should not be welcomed to Britain while he abuses our shared values with his shameful Muslim ban and attacks on refugees' and women's rights.feedback

Ben Wickler

Between the possible collusion in Russia and the unconstitutional Muslim ban, there's never been a moment where an independent judiciary has been so critical. (Gorsuch) has been hostile to bring any accountability to executive power.feedback

Stephen Hawking

His travel ban brands as Islamic State terrorists all citizens of six mainly Muslim countries, but not including America's allies such as Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which allegedly help finance Islamic State. This blanket ban is inefficient and prevents America recruiting skilled people from these countries. To be effective, it should be replaced by a more selective, intelligence-based approach.feedback

Susan Glasser

President Trump has talked a lot about defeating the Islamic State but done virtually nothing to address Iraq itself, except to lump it in with other suspect states in a temporary travel ban, a move he ultimately reversed amid protests from his own commanders, who objected to treating an ally with the back of the hand.feedback

David Scowsill - World Travel & Tourism Council

The travel ban is not having a material impact yet. But we are seeing the unintended consequences of this now because the message has gone around the world that the U.S. is not open for business. Overall the U.S. is still robust. The most important thing is that we get to the end of this (travel ban) situation.feedback

Matthew d'Ancona

From the travel ban to healthcare to Nato funding, the president is realising that there are limits to the power of his falsehoods. The great philosopher-novelist Umberto Eco once declared that we will always come up against “the hard core of Being” and the “lines of resistance” that tell us when we are talking rubbish, or acting nonsensically.feedback

Hassan Aden

It just feels like ever since the talk of the travel ban it's like now there's actually - there's some tangible experience . . . of that talk. I fully support the mission of the Customs and Border Protection agency. And I fully appreciate the difficulty of their job and the dangers of their job. What I question here is essentially their policies and what they view as a reasonable detention. And I would venture to say that 90 minutes is an unreasonable detention when there is no probable cause to believe that a crime has occurred.feedback

Bassel Almadani

I understand the travel ban was done with the impression for securing a place of safety for Americans. I feel it is short-sighted and perpetuates the xenophobia that exists in this country. It wasn't until the immigration ban went into place that people became more intent on the issue and more supportive of the cause.feedback

Bassel Almadani

For a good five years there, I thought I was pulling teeth to get that conversation moving. It wasn't until the immigration ban went into place that people became more intent on the issue and more supportive of the cause.feedback

Douglas Chin

It really hits home with me. It worries me about this society and what's happening. I think that's where you probably can catch a spark of a personal sense of duty about this whole travel ban. All of a sudden I wasn't in this place where I felt invisible anymore so that was really empowering. People in Hawaii don't know how to process a Muslim other than what they see on TV.feedback

Chris Davey

We're inclined to say that the overarching factors that might be influencing this are probably global economic factors and it would be premature to conclude that it's the travel ban. But it certainly could be.feedback

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin

[Historically] we were the ones who were called terrorists when bombs were going off [in the UK]. You call someone a terrorist or give an impression that a certain entire religious faith is connected with terrorism and that's really undermining. We have an immigrant story to tell. We are an immigrant nation, there are more Irish people born outside of Ireland than there are in Ireland. We see what's coming into effect now. You see the travel ban coming into effect and it's fundamentally, in my view, racist. You see the heavy emphasis on immigrant crime.feedback

Theodore D. Chuang

In particular, the direct statements by President Trump and Mayor Giuliani's account of his conversations with President Trump reveal that the plan had been to bar the entry of nationals of predominantly Muslim countries deemed to constitute dangerous territory in order to approximate a Muslim ban without calling it one – precisely the form of the travel ban in the First Executive Order.feedback

Erik Wemple

Kyle Becker works at the Independent Journal Review with the title of lead editor and director of viral media. Today he posted a story with this headline: “Ex-President Obama Made ‘Surprise Visit’ to Hawaii, Just Days Before Judge Issued Travel Ban Ruling.” Though that headline seems tightly factual, it was filed under the banner of “OPINION.”.feedback

Kamal Essaheb

Trump's actions expose this administration's blueprint for reshaping America. Those of us who oppose Trump's agenda need to fight lots of fights. The budget. The Muslim ban and Trump's deportation force will hurt real people in real communities.feedback

Derrick Watson

In this highly unique case, the record provides strong indications that the national security purpose is not the primary purpose for the travel ban.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Wednesday was arguably the worst day of the Trump presidency - at least since he went to the CIA headquarters to insist his inauguration crowd was bigger than President Obama’s. His second Muslim travel ban was put on hold by another federal judge. His health-care bill is taking on water. In his Michigan appearance he did not even mention it. In Tennessee he seemed intent on getting it behind him. (The Post reported, “Though health-care reform was a major promise of his campaign and a signature pillar of the Republican Party’s platform for most of the last seven years, Trump made it clear Wednesday that he would much rather be dealing with the tax code than with health care, which he recently said ‘nobody knew’ could be so ‘complicated.'”).feedback

Jennifer Rubin

President Trump suffered yet another loss on his Muslim ban when a district court in Hawaii issued a temporary restraining order preventing the second version of his executive order from going into effect. The Post reports.feedback

Theodore D. Chuang

Despite these changes, the history of public statements continues to provide a convincing case that the purpose of the Second Executive Order remains the realization of the long-envisioned Muslim ban. The fact that the White House took the highly irregular step of first introducing the travel ban without receiving the input and judgment of the relevant national security agencies strongly suggests that the religious purpose was primary and the national security purpose, even if legitimate, is a secondary, post hoc rationale.feedback

Leon Fresco

I think that is going to be received with a very ugly reception in the Supreme Court, where I don't think that would necessarily be the case with this new travel ban.feedback

Lee Gelernt

The Maryland court saw through the government's legal maneuvering and recognized the new order for what it was: a Muslim ban. And importantly, he issued a preliminary injunction, not just a (temporary restraining order), so the injunction will remain in place through trial, and not just for a couple of weeks.feedback

Justin Cox

This Muslim ban was threatening to either separate or continue to separate families who've already been separated for months and years. It has real-world consequences and we were obviously very glad to see that Judge Chuang recognized those and rejected the government's frankly callous argument that our clients have already been waiting and another few months couldn't possibly be irreparable.feedback

Margaret Everett

Obviously we're concerned about the climate and the rhetoric and the administration policies and travel ban.feedback

Phil Murphy

I know what was being said about somebody else in the 1920s. We have to be on the edge of our seat, the comparison, at least in the early stages, and I've also said – 'please God, I'm not suggesting it ends like it ended in Germany'. But one thing you realize, when you start discriminating against people, based on whatever you want to fill in the blank, in this case religion, based on how they worship – a Muslim ban in this case, when that train gets going down the tracks, the one lesson I know from Germany is it can get out ahead of you and you can never catch that train.feedback

Xavier Becerra

The Trump Administration may have changed the text of the now-discredited Muslim travel ban, but they didn't change its unconstitutional intent and effect.feedback

Li Jianhua

What the Islamic State and extremists push is jihad, terror, violence. This is why we see Trump targeting Muslims in a travel ban. It doesn't matter whether anti-Muslim policy is in the interests of the U.S. or it promotes stability, it's about preventing religious extremism from seeping into all of American culture.feedback

Brian Frosh

Trump's second executive order is still a Muslim ban. The administration persists in an effort to implement a policy that is inhumane and unconstitutional, but also makes us less safe, not more safe.feedback

David Kong - Best Western

I'm glad that the travel ban has been revised, but it still has some problems. It sends a message that we are not welcoming. As leader of our country, the President needs to be aware that there is collateral damage.feedback

Christophe Ayela

It was a love story and then it turned to hell. There was no kidnapping attempt. Ms George did not know that there was a legal travel ban placed on the children.feedback

Fareed Zakaria

While the Trump administration wastes time on its travel ban, cyberwarfare goes ignored.feedback

Bob Ferguson

The revised executive order does narrow the scope of who's impacted. That does not change the underlying constitutional problems: If you're acting in an unconstitutional way – this is effectively a Muslim ban – the fact that it's a smaller group of individuals who are harmed does not change the analysis.feedback

Douglas Chin

This new executive order is nothing more than Muslim ban 2.0. Under the pretense of national security, it still targets immigrants and refugees.feedback

Khalil Rasheed

We have two populations, one that is diverse, open-minded and embraces immigrants, and then we have another segment of population that is conservative, focused on the white identity angle … I am afraid of seeing a breaking point. Right now it's just an immigration ban, but down the road it could be anything.feedback

Catherine Kim

I'm not sure that there's anything that the new travel ban can do to erase the historical record of how we got to where we are today.feedback

Lucky Tran

Policies that accommodate refugees are the reason why I got to be a scientist, and the US immigration ban is now denying a whole generation of people that opportunity. In my lifetime, I've not seen scientists be so willing to come out in to the street.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Like the president, the travel ban becomes more irrational over time: “Refugees generally aren’t a security threat, for example, and it’s unclear whether vetting or visa-issuing procedures in the six remaining targeted countries represent the biggest weakness in our border defenses or ability to prevent terrorism on American soil.”.feedback

Bob Ferguson

By rescinding his earlier executive order, President Trump makes one thing perfectly clear: His original travel ban was indefensible -- legally, constitutionally and morally. The president has capitulated on numerous key provisions blocked by our lawsuit, including bans on Green Card holders, visa holders and dual citizens, an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees, and explicit preferences based on religion. We are carefully reviewing the new executive order to determine its impacts on Washington state and our next legal steps.feedback

Moustafa Bayoumi

In substance, we’ve been given the same Muslim ban as the first time around. It demands as much – if not more – opposition as its predecessor received. After Donald Trump addressed a joint session of Congress, many Americans swooned at the fact that our president could read words. For a moment, it really was shocking. Trump, who usually sounds like the Facebook account of your old high-school tormentor, barely mentioned himself in the speech. He seemed to look forward more than backward. And he was wearing a tailored suit. Who was this man?feedback

In an overnight trading session really devoid of any major market moving news … there has been some focus on Trump's second attempt at pushing through the controversial travel ban.feedback

Molly Corbett Broad - American Council on Education

While the revised order has narrowed the number of people impacted by the travel ban, we fear that those still excluded–coupled with the faulty initial roll-out and the harsh rhetoric that often accompanies today's public policy discussions about immigration–still creates a climate where it is far more difficult for international students and scholars to view this country as a welcoming place for study and research.feedback

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

The Trump administration has conceded that its original Muslim ban was indefensible. Unfortunately, it has replaced it with a scaled-back version that shares the same fatal flaws.feedback

Paul Waldman

Today the administration released the new version of its travel ban, and unlike the first, bumbling time they did it, this time it actually looks like they put some thought into it, particularly with regard to getting it upheld in court. There is one critical feature it shares with the original version, however: it will do nothing to keep Americans any safer than we already are.feedback

Guy Shone

Global events like Brexit and the Trump travel ban have caused economic turbulence. The travel ban caused a very big bump to the Bloomberg U.S. Airlines Index – dropping more in a day than it had in many months. Airline stocks have, like many other firms, been hit by concern about any signs that isolationist statements might make it into real policies. Firms with deeper pockets and better relationships may be better able to offset fuel cost rises with more efficient engines, materials and even using additive manufacturing techniques like 3D printing to dramatically reduce overall costs.feedback

Angus King

A deliberate strategy of Isis and other extremist groups is to create a divide between America and the Muslim world in order to drive Muslims towards their brand of extremist violence and terrorism. Unfortunately, the president's travel ban, even with its revisions, continues to risk playing into that strategy, which I believe will result in the weakening of our national security – not the strengthening of it, as the president intended.feedback

Greg Sargent

We keep hearing that President Trump will roll out the new version of his travel ban any day now. The White House delayed it earlier this week, because Trump advisers reportedly thought it could step on the good press he’d earned from his speech, thus inadvertently undercutting their own claims that enacting the ban is an urgent national security matter.feedback

Roland Swenson

In the post-Trump era, it looks different than how it was intended, and how it was received in the past. But we've come out strongly against the travel ban, and we've really been going the extra mile to make sure these bands don't get screwed over when they enter the country.feedback

Kevin Plank

In a business television interview last week, I answered a question with a choice of words that did not accurately reflect my intent. Immigration is a source of strength, diversity, and innovation for global companies based in America like Under Armour ... We are publicly opposing the travel ban. With an anticipated new executive order on immigration set to come out, we will join a coalition of companies in opposition to any new actions that negatively impact our team, their families or our community.feedback

Jonathan Greenblatt

We have been vocal at the national and regional level about our opposition to the travel ban.feedback

Lan Nguyen - Commerzbank

The dollar is supported by the Trump announcement on taxation, . But maybe investors will remain cautious for the time being. Since we saw what happened with the (blocked) travel ban ... uncertainty is still quite high about what Trump will do and what he can get through.feedback

Bernie Sanders

Hopefully, the unanimous court ruling against President Trump's immigration ban will restore some of the damage he has done to our country's reputation around the world. It also may teach President Trump a lesson in American history and how our democracy is supposed to work here at home.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

I do not support the immigration ban. If we stand and say nothing, we become a part of it. He had a focus that was unlike any other. His thinking was so pure, he wasn't trying to maximize his wealth or anything else.feedback

Jennifer Morrissey

I definitely think it's probably the clearest illustration that I can think of offhand why the travel ban was poorly thought out, poorly executed, and had significant humanitarian consequences.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Many in America don't realize how proud they should be of the legal system. Not perfect, but nowhere is the cause of justice better served. At my request, the agenda for yesterday's White House meeting went from not mentioning the travel ban to having it be first and foremost. In addition, I again raised climate. I believe this is doing good, so will remain on council & keep at it. Doing otherwise would be wrong.feedback

Sean Spicer

It's not a ban, it's not a ban. The travel ban is not a ban, which makes it not a ban. You just said that. He's quoting you. It's your words. He's using your words, when you use the words and he uses them back it's circular using of the word and that's from you.feedback

Randy Frederick

I think the markets were spooked by Trump's immigration ban and there haven't been many positive news to push them back to the uptrend.feedback

Rudy Giuliani

When he first announced it, he said Muslim ban. He called me up, he said put a commission together, show me the right way to do it legally. I put a commission together and what we did was we focused on, instead of religion, danger. The areas of the world that create danger for us, which is a factual basis, not a religious basis. Perfectly legal, perfectly sensible, and that's what the ban is based on. It's not based on religion.feedback

Stephen Massocca

For all his bluster and ridiculous behavior and thin-skinnedness, the actual things Trump has done and the people he's appointed and the decisions he's made, except for the [travel] ban … in terms of steering the state, are pretty good.feedback

Sean Spicer

It's not a travel ban. What it is is to make sure that the people who are coming in are vetted properly from seven countries that were identified by the Obama administration. A ban would mean people can't get in. Everybody is arguing whether or not it is a BAN. Call it what you want, it is about keeping bad people (with bad intentions) out of country!feedback

Ian Bremmer - Eurasia Group

The wall and immigration ban are the perfect metaphors for the end of the Pax Americana.feedback

Muhtar Kent

Coca-Cola Co. is resolute in its commitment to diversity, fairness, and inclusion, and we do not support this travel ban or any policy that is contrary to our core values and beliefs.feedback

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

Some commentators compared Trump's firing of the Acting Attorney General for defying him on the controversial travel ban to Richard Nixon's monumental clash with the Justice Department leadership, commonly known as the Saturday Night Massacre. But the circumstances today are entirely different.feedback

Sean Spicer

When we use words like 'travel ban,' that misrepresents what it is. It's seven countries previously identified by the Obama administration, where frankly we don't get the information that we need for people coming into this country. This isn't about refugees. It's about travelers. … And people are actually stopping, reading the order and realizing, Oh, that's it?feedback

Kit Juckes

Trump's travel ban - and his associated decision to fire the acting Attorney General - dominates sentiment and remains good for Treasuries, the yen and gold, but bad for bonds and the dollar. My bias is still that we'll get back to the Trump economic program, and the implications for Fed policy, before too long. More prosaically, markets will focus on the US jobs data due Friday.feedback

Aulia Adila

When Trump had a chance of winning the election this made me reconsider going to the States to study. Now that he won, and with the Muslim ban and the new migrant policy, it's becoming even more impossible and unsafe to be in America. I'm considering another country where I'll feel safe.feedback

Peter Costa

You have a lot of pushback about this immigration ban and I think that that probably stuck the administration a little bit, so people want to get out, try to get out at the top and that's all you're seeing right now. I don't think this is a pretense for what's coming up.feedback

Jim Corridore

We think the President's travel ban could have negative implications for orders from Iran and Iraq. We see these contracts as vulnerable to cancellation, though we also think it possible that the current injunction against the travel ban will be upheld, which could lessen the impact.feedback

Anthony D. Romero - American Civil Liberties Union

The United States is a nation governed by the rule of law and not the iron will of one man. President Trump now has learned that we are democratic republic where the powers of government are not dictatorial. We have no doubt that the motivation behind the executive order was discriminatory. This was a Muslim ban wrapped in a paper-thin national security rationale.feedback

Brian Hooks

We believe it is possible to keep Americans safe without excluding people who wish to come here to contribute and pursue a better life for their families. The travel ban is the wrong approach and will likely be counterproductive. Our country has benefited tremendously from a history of welcoming people from all cultures and backgrounds. This is a hallmark of free and open societies. We see big opportunities to work with the new administration and this new Congress.feedback

Rob Reiner

Along with liar,racist,misogynist,fool,infantile,sick,narcissist-with the Muslim ban we can now add heartless & evil to DT's repertoire.feedback

Dieter Janecek

Donald Trump is no longer a reliable partner. If this insanity is not rescinded, that one should look into whether it is possible to impose a travel ban on him and (White House adviser) Stephen Bannon, the author of this unconstitutional rule.feedback

Kamala Harris

Make no mistake – this is a Muslim ban. We have opened our doors to those fleeing violence and oppression for decades, by presidents on both sides of the aisle. During the Holocaust, we failed to let refugees like Anne Frank into our country. We can't let history repeat itself.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're talking about – no it's not the Muslim ban. But it's countries that have tremendous terror. It's countries that we're going to be spelling out in a little while in the same speech. And it's countries that people are going to come in and cause us tremendous problems. Our country has enough problems without allowing people to come in who, in many cases or in some cases, are looking to do tremendous destruction.feedback

Farhana Khera

Literally from the day after the election we went into gear and started putting together our battle plan. This is probably the biggest fight that any of us have seen in our adult lives. We think it's a step towards the complete Muslim ban that he promised during his campaign.feedback

Masashi Murata - Brown Brothers Harriman

It is highly doubtful whether Trump would go ahead with a large-scale immigration ban to an extent that would affect the markets in a long term. Trump would keep his strong rhetoric from his candidate days to assure his followers, but he has not detailed the actual action plans. His policy won't be a straight-forward protectionism, considering his positive comments on the strong Mexican economy.feedback

Jeff Flake

The travel ban is on life support here, because for all intents and purposes, anybody can go, . All these barriers are coming down.feedback
