Second US appeals court upholds injunction on Trump travel ban


The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the ruling of a district judge in Hawaii who issued an injunction on US President Donald Trump's second executive order on immigration, also known as the travel ban, court documents revealed on Monday, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

 

"[W]e affirm the injunction as to Section 2(c), suspending entry of nationals from the six designated countries for 90 days; Section 6(a), suspending USRAP [US Refugee Admissions Program] for 120 days; and Section 6(b), capping the entry of refugees to 50,000 in the fiscal year 2017," the court decision stated. "We vacate the portions of the injunction that prevent the Government from conducting internal reviews."

 

The court decision did not include a ruling on claims made by the US federal government that Trump has the power to enact such a law under the Constitution, instead leaving that decision up to a higher court.

 

"The President recently confirmed his assessment that it is the 'countries' that are inherently dangerous, rather than the 180 individual nationals of those countries who are barred from entry under the President's 'travel ban,’ " the court ruling said.
