9th Circuit Court, in a unanimous decision by a three-judge panel ruled that a Seattle federal judge’s earlier restraining order on the new policy should remain in effect while the judge further examines its legality. This blocks enforcement of President Trump’s executive order barring travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations from entering the U.S. The ruling means that citizens of seven majority Muslim countries will continue to be able to travel to the US, despite Trump’s executive order from last month.
Trump issued the travel ban on January 27, causing chaos, confusion and protests at international airports as the legal status of people in transition was suddenly thrown into question. Lawsuits have been filed across the country, but it was one from federal Judge James Robart in Seattle last Friday that blocked the travel ban nationwide, clearing the way for resumed travel from the seven countries.
