Second US Appeals Court Upholds Injunction on Trump Travel Ban


WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the ruling of a district judge in Hawaii who issued an injunction on US President Donald Trump’s second executive order on immigration, also known as the travel ban, court documents revealed on Monday.

“[W]e affirm the injunction as to Section 2(c), suspending entry of nationals from the six designated countries for 90 days; Section 6(a), suspending USRAP [US Refugee Admissions Program] for 120 days; and Section 6(b), capping the entry of refugees to 50,000 in the fiscal year 2017,” the court decision stated. “We vacate the portions of the injunction that prevent the Government from conducting internal reviews.”

A US federal judge in Hawaii indefinitely extended on March 30 a court order blocking Trump’s new travel ban.
