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

Obviously we're concerned about the climate and the rhetoric and the administration policies and travel ban.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have never seen more dishonest media, frankly than the political media. The leaks are real. The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake. I'm not ranting and raving. I'm just telling you. You know, you're dishonest people. But… but I'm not ranting and raving. I love this. I'm having a good time doing it. I don't mind a bad story if it's true. We had a very smooth roll out of the travel ban. But we had a bad court. We had a bad decision, that is the only thing that is wrong with the travel ban.
"The press has become so dishonest that if we don't talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people,". "That circuit is in chaos and that circuit is frankly in turmoil,". "Let me tell you about the travel ban. We had a very smooth rollout of the travel ban. But we had a bad court.".
We had a very smooth roll-out of the travel ban. But we had a bad court. We had a bad decision. We had a court that has been overturned again, I may be wrong but I think it is 80% of the time, a lot. We had a bad decision.We are going to keep going with that decision, we are going to put in a new executive order next week.
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.
We have been vocal at the national and regional level about our opposition to the travel ban.
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.
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.

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.
What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into US? Because the ban was lifted by a judge, many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country. A terrible decision. Why aren't the lawyers looking at and using the Federal Court decision in Boston, which is at conflict with ridiculous lift ban decision. The judge opens up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart. Bad people are very happy.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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!
The wall and immigration ban are the perfect metaphors for the end of the Pax Americana.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting. America is a proud nation of immigrants and we will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do so while protecting our own citizens and border. This is not about religion - this is about terror and keeping our country safe. I have tremendous feeling for the people involved in this horrific humanitarian crisis in Syria. My first priority will always be to protect and serve our country, but as President I will find ways to help those who are suffering.
The joint statement of former presidential candidates John McCain & Lindsey Graham is wrong - they are sadly weak on immigration. The two ... Senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III. We will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do while protecting our own citizens and voters. This is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting. This is not about religion -- this is about terror and keeping our country safe.
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.
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.
It's not a Muslim ban, but we were totally prepared. It's working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over. What is our coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into U.S.? Because the ban was lifted by a judge, many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country. A terrible decision. The judge opens up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart. Bad people are very happy! SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!
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.
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.
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.
The Muslim ban is something that in some form has morphed into an extreme vetting from certain areas of the world. It's called extreme vetting.
