Homeland Security: We Will Continue To Enforce Trump’s Travel Ban

Despite a court order, the Department of Homeland Security said they plan to follow President Trump’s executive order to the letter.

In a statement released early Sunday morning, the agency said they plan on continuing to “enforce all of the president’s executive orders in a manner that ensures the safety and security of the American people.”

The court order, they say, will not affect the overall implementation of the executive order and the court order, issued late Saturday night by a federal judge, only affected a small number of travelers who were inconvenienced by security procedures upon their return, Fox News reports.

“The president’s executive orders remain in place—prohibited travel will remain prohibited, and the U.S. government retains its right to revoke visas at any time if required for national security or public safety,” the statement said.

The judge’s temporary stay bans the U.S. from deporting people from nations subject to Trump’s travel ban, saying travelers who were detained had a strong argument their rights had been violated.

Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to the White House, said, “Nothing in the Brooklyn judge’s order in anyway impedes or prevents the implementation of the president’s executive order which remains in full, complete and total effect.”

Trump’s travel ban sparked protests around the country at several international airports. Demonstrators ranged from a few dozen people to thousands.

Homeland Security said the order affects a small amount of people traveling internationally.

The DHS said the order was the “first step towards reestablishing control over America’s borders and national security.”

The DHS said in the statement that they “will faithfully execute the immigration laws, and we will treat all of those we encounter humanely and with professionalism.” They also added that they plan to ensure the safety of the American people by making sure those entering the U.S. pose no threat.

President Trump has said his sweeping executive order as a necessary step to stop “radical Islamic terrorists” from coming to the U.S. It included a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. by citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen and a 120-day suspension of the U.S. refugee program.
