JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft made an appearance on the Fox Business Network Monday to speak about a revised immigration order from President Donald Trump. In the interview with Stuart Varney, he said he believed this one would pass legal muster.
“Obviously there will be people that will complain; you can file lawsuits for any reason,” Ashcroft told Varney. “But clearly this executive order, as we’ve seen drafts of it, is well within the constitutional authority of the President of the United States.”
He added the new language is more clear than a previous, widely decried, executive order and he expects it to hold up when it likely goes to court.
Ashcroft shared the appearance with supporters via email and asked for campaign donations.
