'We Will Prevail': Conway Confident in Legal Merits of Executive Order
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday unanimously upheld a temporary suspension of President Donald Trump's executive order restricting travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations.
On "The First 100 Days" tonight, Kellyanne Conway downplayed the court's decision as an "interim ruling."
"We are fully confident now that we will get our day in court and have an opportunity to argue this on merits," Conway said. "We will prevail."
She said it is clearly written in 1952 statute that a president has great authority over America's national interests and security, which makes Trump's executive order on immigration legal.
Conway added that the purpose of the order was to temporarily pause travel from seven countries - Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan and Somalia - that don't currently have adequate vetting procedures.
"If we can argue that on the merits and people really look at that statute ... we'll get a different result."
