DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 8, 2017, 8:42 AM (IDT)

An appeals court in San Francisco on Tuesday delayed by several days its decision on reinstating an executive order by US President Donald Trump that bars citizens of seven Muslim countries from entering the country. The step came after Saturday’s appeal by the Justice Department of rulings by two federal judges, one in Boston and another in Seattle, that the order is unconstitutional and illegal. A Justice Department representative claimed during Tuesday’s proceedings that that the seven countries pose a danger to US citizens. Regardless of the appeals court’s decision, the issue will apparently be taken up by the Supreme Court.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
