LR Readers Trash Trump Travel Ban

Activists Gather In Times Square In Day Of Solidarity With American Muslims

But his 32-page decision goes far beyond that technical question, giving a major victory to the Trump administration and its authority to issue the order, which would temporarily ban immigration from six Muslim-majority countries and suspend the US refugee program. The injunction had been brought forward by Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, who was represented by an attorney from the Council on American-Islamic Relations. But it gives ammunition to government lawyers arguing for the ban across several USA courts where cases against it are pending.

The losses forced Trump to revise his initial executive order, signed one week after he was sworn in, though the new version - which he called simply a "watered down" one - has also been blocked by courts. The judges cited statements by Trump and his campaign associates about restricting Muslim travel to the U.S.as evidence of their intent to single out followers of Islam.

"As the Court correctly explains, the President's Executive Order falls well within his authority to safeguard the nation's security", she said.

Trenga did note that the intent of the President's order can be examined: "T$3 he Court rejects the [administration's] position that since President Trump has offered a legitimate, rational, and non-discriminatory goal stated in EO-2, this Court must confine its analysis of the constitutional validity of EO-2 to the four corners of the Order". Lawyers for the state of Hawaii argued the revised order violated the First Amendment's establishment clause. The Justice Department said Trump has broad legal authority to regulate immigration. The revised order halted admissions of refugees for 120 days, but it no longer banned Syrian refugees indefinitely and didn't favor Christians.

The partisan divide over the House Intelligence Committee's probe of Russian interference in the US presidential election deepens when the committee's top Democrat suggested its Republican chairman canceled a public hearing after pressure from the White House. It also spells out the administration's justification for the ban and does not seek cancellation of existing visas, as the original order did. Trump's nominee for the vacant seat on the court, Neil Gorsuch, had hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week, during which he was asked whether he thought the travel ban constituted a religious test.

Chin had specific intent to kill the 25 patients, but rather that (they) acted with extreme indifference to human life". Cadden's watch caused the largest public health crisis in this country ever by a pharmaceutical drug", Weinreb said.

"Thankfully, this decision does not alter the injunctions that are already preventing the implementation of the Trump administration's illegal executive order".

Republicans in Congress say they lack the votes to pass their USA healthcare system overhaul, and a key committee chairman came out in opposition after Trump demanded a vote in a gamble that could hobble his presidency.

While Trenga's order does not overturn the previous rulings, it is likely to help strengthen the Justice Department's case in the appeals process.

Trump has said he wants to take arguments over the travel ban to the Supreme Court.
