  • Trump's Travel Ban Bumped Lottery Visa Winners Judge Rules

Challengers of Trump's immigration restrictions have said the bans are aimed at following through on a pledge he made on the campaign trail in 2016 to block Muslims from entering the country.

Chuang was one of two district court judges who blocked Trump's second travel ban, saying "it is likely that its primary goal remains the effectuation of the proposed Muslim ban".

Data collected and analysed by Politico showed a "notable drop" in the number of visas issued to people from Muslim-majority countries overall, in addition to those targeted by Trump's travel ban, with Arab states among the hardest hit. In a revised instructions issued this week, the administration also dropped Sudan from the list and added Chad.

"President Trump's newest travel ban is still a Muslim ban at its core, and it certainly engages in discrimination based on national origin, which is unlawful", said the ACLU's executive director, Anthony Romero. Crucially, it won't apply to those who already hold a valid USA visa.

However the court cancelled the scheduled hearing Monday while it considers whether the new travel ban renders it irrelevant.

Courts are now trying to figure out how to deal with the latest updates.

Americans like the idea of tax cuts for all...to a point
Corker had sought a revenue-neutral tax plan, while Toomey had called for as much as $3 trillion in lost revenue over 10 years. The increases would primarily come from the repeal of several itemized deductions, such as the state and local tax deduction.


Justices instead directed both sides to file briefs, limited to 10 pages, by October 5 on whether two cases are "moot" after Trump after the updated order.

A New York City-based attorney, Reaz Jafri, who deals with clients from Pakistan, India, Malaysia, Indonesia among other countries told POLITICO that many people from majority-Muslim countries now choose not to come to the United States as they do not want to go through the "hassle" of applying for a U.S. visa. Certain government officials from Venezuela will also be barred.

Iraqis were restricted under the first version of the ban, but the second version dropped Iraq from the list of banned countries.

The American Civil Liberties Union said Friday it will challenge the Trump administration's latest travel ban, the first such legal action to be announced against the new ban. The first two both applied to Sudan as well, but administration officials told the Post that Sudan was removed because the country has improved its information-sharing and security cooperation with the USA since the earlier ban was issued.

However, the latest version of the order applies to two countries, North Korea and Venezuela, that aren't majority Muslim.

As Joshua Keating at Slate notes, there has been no suggestion even by the Trump administration that citizens of North Korea pose a security threat to the United States, as the overwhelming majority of North Koreans are prohibited from leaving their country by their own government.
