NewsFlash! Appellate Court Allows Enforcement of Part of Trump’s Travel Ban

Today, the ninth circuit court of appeals handed the Trump Administration a partial victory, overturning a portion of the injunction that had been instituted on October 17, 2017 by a federal judge in Hawaii. The injunction had prevented the travel ban from being enforced against any traveler from Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad, or Somalia, regardless of whether the person has any ties in the U.S. Today’s ruling serves to limit that injunction so that the travel ban can be enforced against anyone from one of the aforementioned countries who lacks “… a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”

More details on the ongoing court battle regarding the travel ban are available on the MurthyDotCom Current Administration and Immigration page.
