Washington D.C. [United States], Feb 11 (ANI): President Donald Trump on Saturday lashed out at his country's legal system saying it was "broken", as 77 percent of refugees allowed into the U.S. since the travel reprieve, hailed from the very seven Muslim countries he had accused of being havens of terrorism. "Our legal system is broken! "77% of refugees allowed into U.S. since travel reprieve hail from seven suspect countries." (WT) SO DANGEROUS!," Trump said in a tweet. This comes a day after a three-judge federal appeals panel had unanimously refused to reinstate the travel ban from countries like Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Within minutes of the judges' decision, the President angrily tweeted his intent to appeal. "SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!," Trump took to Twitter. Within an hour of the judgment, the hashtag #NoBanNoWall started to trend on the social media. Trump's executive order that he signed last week, suspended immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries for 90 days, the US refugee program for 120 days, and indefinitely halted Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. The Trump administration has said the seven nations - Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - have raised terrorism concerns.
