Appeals Court Rejects Trump Administration's Request to Restore Travel Ban, For Now

Author

06 February, 2017

The State Department announced that it had revoked the visas 60,000 as a result of Trump's order.

Trump's controversial executive order temporarily barred citizens Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan and Yemen, from entering the United States. It was his state that filed the suit.

After the ruling, Mr. Ferguson said people from the affected countries can now apply for entry to the U.S.

Trump, whose personal attack on Robart went too far for some who said the president was undermining an institution created to check the power of the White House and Congress, said he was confident the government would prevail.

Mr Trump was named as one of the appellants in his capacity as president, along with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Homeland Security personnel will resume inspection of travelers according to its standard policy and procedure. The next phase of the legal battle over the travel ban will start on Monday, when the Trump Administration's reply to the appeals court is due.

Trump justified his January 27 order on national security grounds, but opponents say it is unconstitutional in targeting peoples' religious beliefs.

The ACLU and other advocacy groups were aiming to extend the restraining order.

Critics have called it a "Muslim ban", which Trump has denied. On Friday, a federal judge in MA sided with the Trump administration.

Trump's threatened 20% Mexico import tax may benefit oilpatch
Later in the day, Trump contemplated introducing a 20% import tax for products from Mexico to pay for The Wall. The rift between the neighbours and trade partners has deepened just days into Mr Trump's presidency.

The Journal reported that district judges seldom issue nationwide injunctions, but cited a few in recent years, including a 2010 ruling against "don't ask, don't tell" and, a similar ruling in 2015, where a federal judge in Texas issued a nationwide injunction blocking the Obama administration's implementation granting some protection children of illegal immigrants.

The White House pledged to swiftly appeal the federal judge's ruling late Friday, but that didn't appear to be enough for Trump, who vented his frustrations on Twitter. Bennett said she didn't know.

The panel that will decide whether to immediately block the ruling includes three judges appointed by former Republican president George W. Bush and two former Democratic presidents, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama. "For the safety of the country, we'll win".

"The state has met its burden of demonstrating immediate and irreparable injury", he said.

Just a week ago the president acted to suspend America's refugee programme and halt immigration to the USA from seven Muslim-majority countries that the government says raise terrorism concerns.

The statement explained that the Department of Justice plans to overrule the federal judge's decision as soon as possible.

"The Constitution prevailed today", Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said in a statement sent to reporters.
