Trump's revised travel ban will be ruled unlawful

Trump's revised travel ban will be ruled unlawful”

And it is still the case, as U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema found in regard to Trump's first order, that a travel ban "may be counterproductive to its stated goal" of keeping the nation safe.

The Washington attorney general's office wrote on Twitter that its legal team was reviewing the order to "determine next steps". On Thursday, the Seattle judge granted Oregon's request to join Washington and Minnesota in the case opposing the travel ban; NY and MA say they'll also join the case.

The man initially challenged Trump's first travel ban in a federal lawsuit he filed in February.

Washington and Minnesota argued sections of the new order have the same effect as the original and the federal government can not decide unilaterally to change a court's previous ruling.

Ferguson said it's not the government, but the court, that gets to decide whether the revised order is different enough that it would not be covered by previous temporary restraining order.

On Thursday, New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced that he was joining Washington in the suit against the travel ban, which he called "a Muslim ban by another name".

"On the one hand, the government has clearly curtailed the scope of this ban so significantly, we can't underestimate this second policy in terms of scope than the first policy", he said.

The lawsuit said the initial travel ban was unconstitutional and hurt the state's businesses and universities.

Critics maintain the revised travel ban still discriminates against Muslims.

He subsequently obtained asylum for his wife and their only surviving child, a daughter, and their application had cleared the security vetting process and was headed for final processing when it was halted by Trump's original travel ban on January 27.

A federal judge in Madison has issued an order temporarily blocking President Donald Trump's administration from enforcing his new travel ban against a Syrian family trying to reach Wisconsin.

Trump on Monday signed a revised executive order to reinstate a ban on travel and immigration from six Muslim countries. "I believe this executive order violates the establishment clause of the first amendment because it favors one religion or multiple religions over another, namely Islam", said Arjun Sethi.

The revised executive order, which could take effect on March 16, will impose a 90-day ban on travel to the United States by citizens of Sudan, Syria, Yemen, Iran, Somalia and Libya, while excluding Iraq from the list.

Spicer said during the White House briefing Thursday that administration officials "feel very confident with how that was crafted and the input that was given".
