Despite the latest legal setback to his immigration agenda, Donald Trump’s response is clear: “I will not stop fighting for the safety of you and your families. Not today, not ever.”
He made the strong statement during a rally in Nashville on Wednesday night, as the president also described the decision of a federal judge in Hawaii to freeze his new immigration order as “unprecedented judicial overreach.”
Trump did not dismiss the possibility that the judge’s actions were politically motivated.
The Daily Caller reports:
“We are talking about the safety of our nation,” he continued. “The safety and security of our people. You don’t think this was done by a judge for a political reason? This ruling makes us look weak, which by the way we no longer are. Just look at our orders…”
“We are going to take our case as far as it needs to go, even to the Supreme Court. We are going to win. I will not stop fighting for the safety of you and your families. Not today, not ever. We’re going to win it. We are going to win it. We are going to apply common sense. We are never quitting and we are never going away.”
U.S. District Judge Derrick K. Watson on Wednesday froze the immigration order, which temporarily prohibits the entry of the citizens of Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen into the United States for 90 days, after the state filed a lawsuit against White House’s revised order last week.
