After the courts halted President Trump’s first travel ban, the administration came up with a revised ban that conservatives have been hoping would go into effect immediately. U.S. Federal Courts have made a decision that so far, Trump’s new ban is moving forward.
According to The BizPac Review, despite renewed efforts to stop the ban, “A U.S. federal court refused to apply the emergency restraining order from President Trump’s immigration executive order to his newly modified travel ban.”
The judge who put the emergency restraining order on the first travel ban, Seattle U.S. District Court Judge James Robart, has now refused a request that the same order be placed on the revised version.
The new executive order would go in place on March 16th, and the country of Iraq is now removed. Syrian refugees are no longer indefinitely barred from entering the U.S.
The original executive order on immigration had “temporarily halted citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.” and was challenged by several states including Washington and Minnesota.
Kellyanne Conway told Fox News that this executive order should pass all legal tests with flying colors, and that Iraq being removed sets an example for other countries on the list on how to get back into good graces with U.S. immigration. The rest of the countries remain on the list until they show efforts to stop aiding and exporting terrorists.
It’s about time we have a president who cares about Americans! Once this ban goes into effect, the rest of the world will know Trump means business!
