Appeals Court Rules to Limit Trump’s Travel Ban

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled against the Trump administration’s interpretation of who is to be permitted in the country under its revised travel ban.

“A three-judge panel decided that grandparents, cousins and similarly close relations of people in the U.S. shouldn’t be prevented from coming to the country. The court also said refugees accepted by a resettlement agency shouldn’t be banned,” CBS News reported.

The U.S. Supreme Court allowed implementation of the travel ban to move forward in June, overruling decisions by the 8th and 4th Circuits and other lower courts.

The provisional ruling, the high court instructed the administration that the 90 day ban could not be imposed on those who have a “bona fide relationship” with someone in the United States, pending the final outcome of the case.

The Supreme Court is slated to hear oral arguments next month.

The ban applies to those traveling or seeking to immigrate from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The 9th Circuit ruled on Thursday that “(s)tated simply, the government does not offer a persuasive explanation for why a mother-in-law is clearly a bona fide relationship, in the Supreme Court’s prior reasoning, but a grandparent, grandchild, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew or cousin is not.”

Department of Justice lawyers had argued before the court that only those in the immediate nuclear family and in-laws counted as “bona fide” relationships for being allowed entry to the country.

The 9th Circuit’s decision upheld a ruling by a federal district court judge in Hawaii against the Trump administration’s interpretation.

The 9th Circuit ruled against Trump’s initial travel ban last February shortly after it was announced.

The court stated at the time, “We hold that the government has not shown a likelihood of success on the merits of its appeal” nor has it shown “irreparable injury” in not being allowed to go forward with the executive order.

The Trump administration then revised its ban on the court’s ruling, but the 9th Circuit blocked its implementation, as well. The Ninth is the most liberal appears court in the nation and its rulings are most often overturned the most often by the Supreme Court.
