Federal Judge Blocks Implementation of Trump's Revised Travel Ban

Trump’s revised travel ban appears to be heading toward the same fate as the original ban as a federal judge in Madison, Wisconsin, quickly issued a restraining order on behalf of a Syrian refugee living in Wisconsin. The judge’s decision cited the potential impact of the travel ban on the man’s wife and three-year-old daughter, whom the man is attempting to also bring to the U.S. from the war-torn and violent country. The suit, which is similar to lawsuits in at least five other states, claims that the revised travel ban exceeds the president’s scope of authority and violates the constitution. In issuing the temporary restraining order, the federal judge upheld the allegations that the pending lawsuit has some likelihood of success on its merits and the Syrian refugee is at great risk of suffering irreparable harm if a temporary restraining order was not issued. The judge’s decision also cited the daily threats to the refugee’s wife and child who remain in Syria. In the days immediately following the Wisconsin judge’s ban, several states took action to mount legal challenges to the travel ban, including Maryland and Hawaii. Other states have joined the Washington state suit, including Oregon, New York, and Massachusetts. After initially issuing a limited-time temporary restraining order, the Hawaii district court judge issued a longer-term preliminary injunction, which indefinitely blocked crucial provisions of the revised travel ban, including the 90-day ban on immigrants from Muslim countries and the 120-day ban on all refugees entering the country. The federal government has now appealed the Hawaii ruling to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. This appeal will be in addition to the government’s pending appeal in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals after a Maryland judge imposed a nationwide halt to the 90-day ban on immigrants from six Muslim countries.
