Never mind Trump, US travel executives tell foreigners

Never mind Trump, US travel executives tell foreigners

But the three-judge panel - all Democratic appointees - did not address whether it was unconstitutional discrimination against Muslims.

If passed, the executive order would have suspended new visas from Somalia, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Libya and Yemen for 90 days, while the US's refugee programme would have been suspended for 120 days.

The ban, which targets six predominantly Muslim countries, was originally blocked by a court in Hawaii in March. A San Francisco-based appeals court is now considering the Hawaii case. The Trump administration has already asked the Supreme Court to revive the ban and Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Monday that the White House is confident the measure is totally lawful and will be upheld by the nation's top court.

The state urged the justices to deny an administration plea to reinstate the policy after lower courts blocked it.

Trump has been on the losing side in all four court rulings on the March order.

At the time, however, many in those countries with legal USA travel documents rushed to travel or return to the U.S. in fear that a revised ban would pass the courts and they would be locked out. The administration has said the order is needed to prevent terrorism in the United States.

The states are pushing back against the decisions of what they believe are activist judges who have called the president's executive order a "Muslim ban".

In this, they did cite one of the president's tweets: "That's right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain unsafe countries, not some politically correct term that won't help us protect our people!"

The court cited shortcomings with the order as it now is, saying the order does not tie people within the six designated countries in any way to terrorist organizations.

Morgan added: "I have been very impressed with Jonny Bairstow and he never lets us down". We've gain a lot of confidence from this series.

Under immigration law, the administration was required to make findings that entry of the people in question would be detrimental to the United States but failed to do so, the court said. The ruling comes on the heels of a similar ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in May.

"It provides a very attractive way to leave the injunction in place without setting broader doctrinal rules about which they may have pause", Vladeck said.

Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall had previously maintained that the administration was forbidden from conducting "a review of the vetting procedures" with respect to the six countries the ban covered - but the Ninth Circuit concluded Monday that Watson "abused its discretion in enjoining inward-facing agency conduct because enjoining this conduct would not remedy the harms asserted by Plaintiffs".

A 13-judge panel of the 4th Circuit extensively considered issues of religious freedom, drawing heavily on Trump's public statements calling for a "Muslim ban".

"The President unquestionably violates that command when he issues an Order that disproportionality burdens Muslim-Americans, while denigrating the Muslim faith and making it abundantly clear that the Order's harmful effect on Muslims is far from incidental", Katyal argued.

Trump's earlier January 27 order also included Iraq among the countries targeted and a total ban on refugees from Syria.

President Trump's order, a revised version of an earlier attempt to force through the travel block, has now been stuck in limbo for almost three months.

Because of the conflict with immigration law, the judges said they didn't need to consider whether it also violated the Constitution's prohibition on the government favoring or disfavoring any religion.
