US immigration ban: Donald Trump asks for 'very careful' checks of travellers

Washington: US President Donald Trump said that he has asked the Department of Homeland Security to do a very "careful" checkup of those entering the country after a US court rejected a request by his administration to reinstate travel ban on citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations.

The US President continued to be critical of the judge for passing an order that halted his executive order which banned people of seven countries from entering the United States.

"I have instructed Homeland Security to check people coming into our country very carefully. The courts are making the job very difficult!" Trump tweeted. "Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad!" Trump said.

Earlier in the day, a US federal appeals court rejected a request by his administration to immediately reinstate Trump's travel ban on citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries. The Justice Department had made the request with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco as part of an appeal against a lower court order halting the travel ban on people from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen.

The court asked that challengers of the ban respond to the appeal, and for the Justice Department to file a counter-response. The Justice Department said it would not elevate the dispute to the Supreme Court before that.
