TRUMP’S TRAVEL BAN HITS THE 9TH CIRCUIT
The latest legal showdown over President Trump’s revised executive order targeting refugees and nationals from six predominately Muslim countries hits a Seattle appellate courtroom Monday morning. The key issue before a three-judge panel is whether the president’s comments before he took office – suggesting he would ban Muslims from entering the country — provides sufficient legal grounds to rule his order unconstitutional. The order would temporarily halt refugees from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the country. It also freezes refugee admissions so intelligence and security officials can review existing admission procedures.
