ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican President Donald Trump defended his immigration executive order on Wednesday as necessary for the nation's security in a speech to law enforcement officers in which he criticized U.S. courts as being political. "I don't ever want to call a court biased, so I won't call it biased," Trump said. "And we haven't had a decision yet.

And that has to do with the security of our country."
