Wochit Headline News - February 16, 2017

Politico reports that The Trump administration is biding time at a federal appeals court, asking judges to withhold further rulings on President Donald Trump's travel ban executive order because a new directive from the president is on its way.

A new legal brief from the Justice Department was filed Thursday at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals just as Trump indicated to reporters at the White House that he plans a new executive order soon that will address some of the legal concerns that led to his original order being largely blocked by the courts..
