Washington State to Block Trump's Revised Travel Ban

Posted March 14, 2017

The restraining order does not block the entire travel ban, it simply prevents Mr Trump's administration from enforcing it against this specific family.

The motion, filed in a district court in Seattle on Monday morning, argues that core parts of Trump's new ban essentially reinstate parts of the old order, which was chaotically rolled out by the administration in January and was subsequently blocked with a restraining order by U.S. district court judge James Robart.

Ferguson filed new documents after a federal judge last week said he wouldn't immediately rule on whether his restraining order against the old ban applies to the new Trump executive order.

The travel ban is scheduled to go into effect next Thursday.

Take a look at Starbucks first-ever spring cups
Sadly, the coffee containers won't be around for very long as they are debuting on March 16 and going away a few days later. In lieu of the well-known Starbucks logo, Starbucks is encouraging their customers to draw in their own spring designs.

It's unclear whether the new ban applies to asylum seekers like the Syrian family.

On Jan. 27, Trump signed an executive order placing a temporary halt on US admittance of refugees with an indefinite halt on Syrian refugees. Trump said that if they had announced the previous ban with more than a week's notice "bad" people would rush into America.

Fortunately, federal courts had the spine to stand up to Trump's verbal assault on the judicial system's integrity, forcing the administration to strip some blatant excesses from the original ban, such as the exclusion of people holding valid green cards and previously issued visas. However, like the original executive order, the new ban omits countries from the list of banned nations in which the Trump Organization does business or has pursued deals. The Syrian man filed a new complaint on Friday afternoon, alleging the new order is still an anti-Muslim ban that violates his freedom of religion and right to due process.

The White House cites national security in justifying the ban, arguing that it needs time to implement "extreme vetting" procedures to keep militants from entering the country.

Just like the original travel ban, version 2.0 is facing legal challenges.

"To Muslims, including those victimised by or fighting against ISIS, it will send a message that reinforces the propaganda. that falsely claim the United States is at war with Islam", read the letter written by former government officials and experts. Unlike the initial order, the new one says current visa holders won't be affected, and removes language that would give priority to religious minorities. Attorneys general from Massachusetts, Oregon, New York, Minnesota, and California have all signed on to Ferguson's suit.
