President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he would be issuing an order next week aimed at keeping the American people safe, as his temporary ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries remains kept on hold by a federal court.
"We will be issuing a new and very comprehensive order to protect our people," Trump said at a news conference.
Trump said it will be issued "sometime next week, toward the beginning or middle, at the latest."
Earlier in his remarks, the president criticized a federal appeals court's decision to block his late January travel ban. Among other restrictions, it temporarily banned travelers from seven largely Muslim countries.
