President Trump’s executive order temporarily halting immigration from 7 countries deemed a national security threat by the Obama Administration has been put on hold.
From Fox News:
Early Sunday morning a federal appeals court denied the Justice Department’s request for an immediate reinstatement of President Donald Trump’s ban on accepting certain travelers and refugees.
The DOJ filed an appeal of a judge’s order temporarily stopping Trump’s travel ban on Saturday night, saying it’s the “sovereign prerogative” of a president to admit or exclude aliens.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco instead asked for the Justice Department to file a counter-response by Monday afternoon.
The higher court’s denial of an immediate stay means the legal battles will continue for days at least.
We will have to wait and see how this plays out.
It appears that this legal back and forth is going to drag out for awhile.
At the moment, Trump’s immigration moratorium to 7 countries with serious terrorism issues is not being enforced.
