US court lets Trump travel ban go partially into effect

The ruling by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals applies to citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad who lack connections to the US.

The judges said that the government could implement the ban, except on "foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States".

The connections could be family relationships, allowing grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles etc. of people in the US. A federal judge in Maryland, meanwhile, issued a less complete halt, saying the government could similarly not enforce the measure on people from six of the eight countries - save North Korea and Venezuela - but only if the travelers the government sought to block had a "bona fide" relationship with a person or entity in the United States. In his preliminary injunction, Watson did not include people from those two countries.

Hawaii Attorney General Douglas Chin, who has fought the ban in court, said "I'm pleased that family ties to the US, including grandparents, will be respected". "I'm pleased that family ties to the US, including grandparents, will be respected. S., including grandparents, will be respected".

Close connections are defined as family relationships and "formal, documented" relationships with US -based organizations such as universities and resettlement agencies.

Trump has said the travel ban is needed to protect the United States from terrorism by Muslim militants.

Tennessee State Player Expelled From School After Punching Coach on Sideline
Greenstone twice in the head during last weekend's game against the Southest Missouri State Redhawks at Hale Stadium in Nashville. A Tennessee State football player, defensive end Latrelle Lee , recently sucker punched a coach while on the sideline.

Federal Justice Department Spokesperson Lauren Ehrsam said they were reviewing the California court order. "We believe that the proclamation should be allowed to take effect in its entirety". The first was blocked by the courts and the second expired before it could win court approval.

Last month, a federal judge in Hawaii blocked most of Trump's third travel ban just before it was due to take effect.

As the Two-Way reported, "In his ruling, Chuang wrote that President Trump's own tweets helped convince him that the latest policy is an "inextricable re-animation of the twice-enjoined Muslim ban" that Trump called for on the campaign trail and is therefore likely to be found unconstitutional".

The Maryland case is due to be argued before the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on December 8.

The Justice Department sought to put the Hawaii judge's ruling on hold pending arguments scheduled for December 6 at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Seattle.
