Trump exceeded powers by signing Immigration act - US Court of Appeals


The US Court of Appeal for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco ruled that US President Donald Trump's third immigration order exceeds the scope of his delegated authority, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

 

"For the third time, we are called upon to assess the legality of the President’s efforts to bar over 150 million nationals of six designated countries from entering the United States or being issued immigrant visas that they would ordinarily be qualified to receive… We conclude that the President’s issuance of the Proclamation once again exceeds the scope of his delegated authority," the verdict, made on Friday, said.

 

According to the court's verdict, Trump's interpretation of Article 8 of the Immigration and Nationality Act deviates from the legislative history and prior executive practice. Besides, the US president does not have a separate source of constitutional powers for adopting such an order.
