Trump Travel Ban, Back in Action, Faces More Court Showdowns

The latest step in the travel ban and its impact on Maine immigrants US: Supreme Court allows Trump's 'travel ban' to enter effect

Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judges Ronald Gould, Richard Paez and Michael Hawkins are scheduled to hear arguments in Hawaii's challenge to the ban, which restricts travel to the United States by residents of six mostly Muslim countries and has been reviled by critics as discriminatory.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor said they would have denied the administration's request.

"We are not surprised by today's Supreme Court decision permitting immediate enforcement of the President's proclamation limiting travel from countries presenting heightened risks of terrorism", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said after the order.

"The proclamation is lawful and essential to protecting our homeland". The court's order said the appeals courts should decide the cases "with appropriate dispatch".

In a statement, Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the court's decision a "substantial victory for the safety and security of the American people".

The U.S. Supreme Court's decision allowing President Donald Trump's third travel ban to take effect - at least for now - has intensified the attention on a legal showdown before three judges in Seattle who have previously been cool to the administration's efforts.

Trump's Travel Ban has been finally approved by the Supreme Court.

President Trump's September 24 proclamation placed updated restrictions of varying severity on foreign nationals from eight countries: Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen, and Somalia.

Samuel Shaffer's brother, Benjamin, said that his brother was innocent and was only looking after Coltharp's children as a favor. Shaffer is in custody at Iron County Jail and is facing two charges of child kidnapping and four charges of child abuse.

Trump's ban also covers people from North Korea and certain government officials from Venezuela, but the lower courts had already allowed those provisions to go into effect.

The Trump administration said the president put the latest restrictions in place after a worldwide review of the ability of each country in the world to issue reliable passports and share data with the United States. In October the Supreme court rejected the complaint of defenders of the ban on entry into the United States to citizens of several countries.

Hawaii's attorney, Neal Katyal, said in court papers "it is hard to conceive of a more flagrant example of discrimination because of nationality". The justices urged those courts to rule swiftly, but offered no rationale for letting the full ban take effect in the meantime.

He said the fact that these "particular plaintiffs have now been reunited with their loved ones - or some of their loved ones - thanks to the preliminary injunction underscores how imminent the proclamation's threatened injuries are and how crucial the injunction in this case is for the plaintiffs and others similarly situated".

Instead of previous temporary travel bans, the president now "has imposed an indefinite one, deepening and prolonging the harms a stay would inflict", says the brief submitted on Hawaii's behalf by Washington lawyer Neal Katyal.

"It's well documented that Trump says, 'yes, this is me fulfilling my campaign promises of my anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant rhetoric, '" Adams agreed, adding that ultimately the key is whether or not the the Supreme Court is "going to accept the Trump administration's argument that the court should blind itself to history... to all thats occured over the last 11, 12 months".

"This order does not address the merits of our claims".
