"The law makes it very clear that the president has discretion to protect the safety of the American people and our nation's institutions with respect to who can come into this country", Paxton said in a statement.
"I think that circuit is, that circuit is in chaos, and that circuit is frankly in turmoil", Trump said at his news conference today. Refugees were banned for 120 days, except those from Syria, who were banned indefinitely.
The immediate impact was chaos at airports nationwide as the order was implemented and subsequent legal challenges led to the federal judge in Seattle issuing a temporary restraining order halting the ban on February 3. Both sides were directed to file briefs by 11 a.m. Thursday with the San Francisco-based court arguing over whether a larger panel should review the issue.

The three-judge panel, which consisted of two Democratic appointees and one appointed by a Republican, ruled that the states were likely to prevail on their due process challenge.
Trump said at the news conference that a new order would be issued next week. The panel unanimously rejected the administration's claim of presidential authority in the matter.
Trump's original order restricted immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries and prevented Syrian refugees from entering the US indefinitely.
Trump gave no details about the replacement order.

The order banned travel from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya. Eighteen other states, including California and NY, supported the challenge.
Georgia Wralstad Ulmschneider, associate professor of political science, said the question of legality comes down to whether the ban is unconstitutional and/or unlawful.
The judges panel says that, the immigration travel ban which was earlier introduced by Trump's administration is targeting the Muslim countries and Muslims only.
