Next Steps in the Travel Ban Case

Appearing on CNN New Day, Attorney Page Pate discusses the best next steps for the White House following the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision not to overturn Judge Robart’s temporary restraining order of the travel ban executive order.

“The right legal move,” Pate says, “is to simply let the case go back to the District Court, have a full evidentiary proceeding, go through some limited discovery, and really flesh out these issues so that there can be a full opinion, not just on the standing issue, not just on whether the Court has a right to review an executive branch’s decisions in this area, but also on the Constitutional arguments. Once you have a full District Court order, then you can appeal that.”
