States seeking Trump travel ban block want new hearing

15 March, 2017, 01:19 | Author: Essie Rivera

So far, the states of Washington and Minnesota and the Justice Department have filed notices.

Separately, a federal judge in Seattle who issued a nationwide halt to Trump's original travel restrictions denied a motion to have the same ruling apply to the modified measures, saying at least one of the parties must first file additional court papers.

Their comments echo those being made in court by USA states claiming that the modified measures discriminate against Muslims and are detrimental to American interests.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said last week that the administration believes the revised travel ban will stand up to legal scrutiny. Both of those provisions are continued in the revised version, although that applies to six of those nations, not seven (Iraq has been dropped from the list).

A judge will hear arguments Wednesday, with the heavily Democratic state claiming the new order will harm its Muslim population, tourism and foreign students.

Washington state is asking a judge to extend his order to block the revised ban. It also argues that the order will "hinder the States from effectuating the policies of religious tolerance and non discrimination enshrined in our laws and state constitutions". It still suspends admission of refugees and still bans issuing visas to a group of Muslim countries.

After Trump's first order, Vermont colleges warned worldwide students of potential travel complications should they leave the country during school breaks. "Every day I am filled with anguish at what might become of my son, and this order just crushed my hopes that I could get him out of harm's way anytime soon".

Can giant Tesla batteries solve South Australia's energy woes?
The causes of this are twofold: demand exceeding supply, and recurring failures in the state's power generation infrastructure. The Tesla CEO took to Twitter on today (March 10) to offer the Australian state a solution to its worsening blackouts.

President Donald Trump insists his amended travel ban will survive any legal challenge and it's time to see if he's right, with the first court hearings on it scheduled for Wednesday. "And for the reason, we and other litigants around the country are continuing to challenge the executive order".

"President Trump's second executive order is still a Muslim ban".

"The court appreciates that there may be important differences between the original executive order, and the revised executive order", Conley wrote in his decision.

Giving those explanations, it's hard to understand why the United States is still allowing travel from, say, Afghanistan.

Finally, a lawsuit was filed by a private attorney on behalf of the "people of California", according to court documents last week. The letter then gestures-without detail or corroboration-toward "approximately 1000 pending domestic terrorism-related investigations" and "more than 300" refugees who were under investigation for "potential terrorism-related activities". It also temporarily shuts down the USA refugee program. The order causes protests at airports across the country, and halts visa holders and refugees from entering the U.S.

"Hawaii does not identify any particular persons it seeks to recruit who have concrete plans to relocate to Hawaii and join a state university or agency - let alone any specific plans to do so in the next 90 days".

The new order hit its first roadblock Friday when a judge in Wisconsin said it could not be applied to the wife and child of a Syrian refugee who had already reached America.
