Trump's New Travel Ban Dealt First Blow

Trump's New Travel Ban Dealt First Blow”

Washington concedes that the new order no longer covers green card holders.

The Trump Administration may have changed the text of the now-discredited Muslim travel ban, but they didn't change its unconstitutional intent and effect. Hawaii launched its own lawsuit on Wednesday. The new executive order, unlike the old, spelled out a list of people who might be granted exemptions, including those seeking to visit or live with family in the United States.

On Friday night, the judge who issued the original restraining order told Ferguson he needs to file an amended complaint against the new travel ban.

Washington state attorney general Bob Ferguson hopes to win the same kind of suspension for the new order, which the White House tweaked in a bid to make it unassailable in court.

The letter was directed to President Trump and several high-ranking officials including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of State Rex W Tillerson, Secretary of Defence James Mattis, Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly and Michael Dempsey, the acting director of national intelligence. "To Muslims - including those victimised by or fighting against ISIS - it will send a message that reinforces the propaganda of ISIS and other extremist groups, that falsely claim the United States is at war with Islam", it states. "Furthermore, based on DHS data and the experience of its operators, nationals from these countries are more likely to overstay their visas and are harder to remove to their home countries".

A federal judge in Wisconsin recently blocked the administration from enforcing with respect to one family.

The Hawaii federal court argued that the new travel ban still violates the U.S. Constitution despite revising the previous version.

The new motion contains dozens of examples of people and institutions from the states involved who are caught up in Trump's new ban, including families torn apart by the order, educational institutions that say they will suffer as a result, and local business and religious organizations who will also be affected.

The ACLU, the preeminent United States civil liberties group, and the National Immigration Law Center brought the suit on behalf of the International Refugee Assistance Project and the refugee resettlement group HIAS, as well as several individuals.

The survey, conducted on behalf of the Global Business Travel Assn., a trade group for the world's business travel managers, also found that the ban made 34% of travel managers anxious about the harassment of US travelers visiting the Middle East. It is imperative that we call on our senators and representatives to ask them to nullify the executive order and publicly denounce the provisions therein.

It comes as Trump was banned by a federal judge from stopping a Syrian family looking to flee to Wisconsin.

The federal government on Monday asked the court to deny a temporary restraining order request to prevent the ban from going into effect.
