Federal Appeals Court Decides to Shelve Trump’s Travel Ban Until Further Notice

The 9th District Court of Appeals has upheld previous court’s decision to place Donald Trump’s “travel ban” on hold.

Both versions of the travel ban have now been blocked by the court system and to this day have never taken effect.

In this latest defeat, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals sided with Hawaii v. Trump, the first lawsuit filed by a state against the revised travel ban. The appellate court ruled that the ban should be shelved until it makes its way through the court system.

Hawaii was the The first challenge to the 2nd Muslin ban incarnation . The attorney general for that state requested of a federal judge that the new Muslim ban be blocked on the grounds that it “bars the issuance of new visas to citizens of six Muslim-majority countries for 90 days and suspends the refu­gee program for 120 days.”

Speaking about the 2nd version of the travel ban, Stephen Miller, senior policy adviser to the White House told conservative media that the new executive order retained “critical aspects” of the original; and the differences between the 2 are “mostly minor technical differences”.

Changes to the new Muslim ban include provisions such as residents of the Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen who do not have a current and valid visa “are no eligible to travel” to America for the next 4 months.

Once immigration resumes, “admissions to the United States will not exceed 50,000 for fiscal year 2017.”

A new addition to the ban stipulates that Syrian refugee resettlement programs will be treated similarly to other programs in various countries. And the provision giving priority to non-Muslim immigrants was removed.

These judges agreed that there was a likelihood that the travel ban would cause irevicable harm if it were implemented; adding that the executive order signed by Trump “does not offer a sufficient justification to suspend the entry of more than 180 million people on the basis of nationality.”

In their opinion, the judges pointed out that “national security is not a ‘talismanic incantation’ that, once invoked, can support any and all exercise of executive power.”

The court cited Trump’s tweets in their decision, showing that the travel ban is meant to discriminate against Muslims; as was evidenced in the June 5th tweet claiming that “we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries.”

Based on tweets, Trump’s intentions are clear regardless of how White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tried to convince reporters back in January of this year that Trump’s Muslim ban was actually “a vetting system”.

It is still true that “no one from the six affected countries has been implicated in a fatal terror attack on U.S. soil since 9/11.”
