  • Unanimous ruling from appeals court keeps Trump travel ban blocked

Trump's initial reaction came minutes later on Twitter: "SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!"

His comments come a day after a San Francisco-based U.S. appeals court refused to reinstate his temporary ban on travel by refugees and residents of seven Muslim majority countries, which he claims is to protect national security. If signed, it's expected a new order would be more limited than the current one, which declares a moratorium on travel from nationals of seven mostly Muslim countries, temporarily suspends the admission of refugees and indefinitely bars Syrian refugees.

Asked if his plan might be to issue a new executive order, Trump said: "It very well could be".

Since then, hundreds of affected travelers - many of whom are refugees fleeing from war-torn countries - over the weekend had their visas restored and were able to return to the United States, reuniting with friends and family.

Speaking at the White House Mr. Trump said: "We will be doing something very rapidly to do with the additional security for our country".

US District Judge James Robart issued the temporary restraining order halting the ban after Washington state and Minnesota sued, leading to the government's appeal.

"It seemed the everyone except the president and his administration knew that the order was unconstitutional, and the decision by our judiciary serves to confirm that", he said.

"We have very, very strong vetting". "And, in addition to that, we're pursuing executive orders right now that we expect to be enacted soon that will further protect Americans from terrorism".

The abrupt implementation of the order plunged the immigration system into chaos, sparking a wave of criticism from targeted countries, Western allies and some of America's leading corporations, especially technology firms.

In their court filing with the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a total of 97 companies said Trump's travel ban "hinders the ability of American companies to attract great talent; increases costs imposed on business; makes it more hard for American firms to compete in the worldwide marketplace".

Trump said there are tremendous threats to the country.

"We'll win that battle", Trump told reporters, adding: "The unfortunate part is it takes time. We are going to have people coming to our country that want to be here for good reason", PTI quoted Trump as saying.

Trump has previously indicated that he would take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary, and the decision would be put in the hands of a divided court that has a vacancy.

"We're keeping all our options open", one official said.

After first suggesting a quick appeal to the Supreme Court was off the table, U.S. officials reversed course, insisting a legal challenge had not been dropped, including a possible motion to the high court.
