President Donald Trump on Monday indicated that he did not issue a notice that his immigration ban was coming because the need for security outweighed the convenience of the traveling public.

“If the ban were announced with a one week notice, the “bad” would rush into our country during that week. A lot of bad “dudes” out there!” Trump tweeted.

Trump also defended other aspects of his executive order in a series of Monday tweets.

Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning. Big problems at airports were caused by Delta computer outage,…..

There is nothing nice about searching for terrorists before they can enter our country. This was a big part of my campaign. Study the world!

Trump’s executive order imposed a 90-day ban on citizens of seven mostly Muslim countries entering the U.S., a 120-day ban on admitting refugees and an indefinite halt to Syrian refugee resettlement.

The order was signed late Friday, and led to operational confusion at many airports, particularly in cities such as New York City and Los Angeles that are major ports of entry into America. Reports of individuals being detained soon led to protests.

The Trump administration has since noted that the new system is not intended to block green card holders and that the numbers of individuals detained represent a small number of travelers entering the U.S.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday the media gave “total misinformation and what I would say information ‘underload’ about the facts and figures.”

“This is a very narrowly prescribed situation, executive order,” for 90 days, Conway said. “Here it is: If you are a foreign national or citizen of one of these seven countries that were first identified by President Obama in 2015, then you cannot come to the United States at this moment.”

“If you have a special situation, you’ll be evaluated on a case by case basis,” she said.

“This country has an interest in the full faith and credit or our green card or LPR [lawful permanent resident] program,” Conway said. “That is not who this narrowly prescribed, temporary halt is meant to apply to.”

In a call with reporters Sunday night, two individuals who, according to the terms of the call, were identified as senior Trump administration officials, said the details of the executive order were developed with, “several of the top immigration staff on Capitol Hill,” approved by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel and reviewed by several government agencies.

The lack of warning that accompanied the ban was defended on the call.

“… everybody here can use their imaginations to imagine 25 reasons that wouldn’t make sense from a security standpoint, a management standpoint, from just an airport-safety standpoint, you name it,” said one senior administration official.

The other noted the order was not imposed “willy-nilly.”
