The legality of Trump's ban

The legality of Trump's ban

On February 9, a federal appeals panel unanimously rejected President Trump's ban on travel into the United States from seven largely Muslim nations for a second time after his attempt to reinstate its effects. According to Reuters, Trump said today, "The new order is going to be very much tailored to what I consider to be a very bad decision".

The administration's lawyers said "the most appropriate course would be for the Court to hold its consideration of the case until the President issues the new Order and then vacate the panel's preliminary decision".

The president's original executive order, temporarily blocking all refugees from entering the USA and barring travelers from seven majority-Muslim countries, prompted chaos, protests and lawsuits as officials and travelers grappled with its implications.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) took a stance on the quotes Trump made towards the court after the ruling regarding the "political decision" the judges had made. Such a move would eliminate the legal precedent of the appeals court's ruling against the administration.

He renewed his attack on the court that blocked his executive order, saying "that circuit is in chaos. and that circuit is frankly in turmoil".

The threat emerged after weeks of storms dumped rain and snow across California, particularly in northern parts of the state. He says the lake behind Oroville Dam also is capable of handling additional rain from an expected storm this week.

Donald Trump has announced he will introduce an executive action next week to "comprehensively protect our country".

The government "has responded with no evidence other than" its executive order to support its immigration and travel restrictions, Judge wrote. Trump's first order temporarily barred refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US, ostensibly so officials could review and tighten screening procedures. But lawyers for the administration said in the filing that a ban that focuses exclusively on foreigners who have never entered the USA - instead of green card holders already in the US or who have traveled overseas and want to return - would pose no legal difficulties.

"We are appealing that and we are going further", he said. They demonstrate that both sides recognize the critical role of the courts in the Trump administration's ability to carry out its agenda.

Justice Department lawyers, though, seemed to think it would have a major impact. With a vacant seat on the Supreme Court there is a likelihood that the Court will split in a 4-4 decision, at which point the ruling of the Court of Appeals would be the final decision. While a three-judge panel on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld this order, an unidentified judge on Friday called for a vote by all of the court's 25 judges on whether the case should be reheard before an en banc review.

"Let me tell you about the travel ban". It also barred all refugees for 90 days and refugees from Syria indefinitely. And the Trump administration will soon learn: Black robes matter. The president could, for example, issue a modified EO that would seek to cure some of the perceived constitutional deficiencies in the original. Interestingly, this was the one part of his executive order that was not struck down by the lawsuits filed in Washington state and Minnesota.
