Muslim ban – 9th Circuit Court refuses to reinstate travel ban, Muslims rush back

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

Washington: Donald Trump’s visa ban against Muslims from seven nations is on hold for now. Following a Federal court order against the Muslim ban, Trump administration had approached federal appeals court to get the hold removed.

But the federal appeals court in San Francisco denied Mr. Trump’s effort to immediately reinstate the ban early Sunday. Now this has prompted Muslims from those countries, with valid visas, to rush back to the US to check if they will be allowed in this time round as the ban is on hold.

But the hold doesn’t stand for those people whose visas have been revoked. Around sixty thousand visas have been removed ever since the visa ban was imposed.

Thanks to the federal appeals court in San Francisco, the ban remains blocked by a judge’s temporary restraining order, and federal officials have told their staffs to comply. Advocates weren’t taking any chances, telling people who could travel to get on the earliest flights they could find after the week-old ban was blocked Friday by U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle.

Rula Aoun, director of the Arab American Civil Rights League in Dearborn, Michigan said that “We’re telling them to get on the quickest flight ASAP”. Her group sued in federal court in Detroit, challenging Mr. Trump’s executive order as unconstitutional.

A report says that the federal judge in Seattle who issued the initial stay on the travel ban pointed out that the Administration initially failed to address issues including travelers from the seven banned countries who had already been granted U.S. visas — including some who got them for helping the U.S. government or military in war zones. Protesters sought to keep up the pressure, meanwhile, gathering in Denver and other U.S. cities to demonstrate against the ban. Meanwhile, legal advocates waited at airports in case anything went wrong with new arrivals.

A statement by State Department said, “We have reversed the provisional revocation of visas…Those individuals with visas that were not physically cancelled may now travel if the visa is otherwise valid.” Earlier, President Donald Trump responded to the judge’s block of his travel ban, tweeting that the decision was”ridiculous” and will be “overturned”.

In the meantime State Department too has changed its stance. The State Department has advised refugee aid agencies that refugees who had been scheduled to travel before the order was signed will now be allowed into the U.S. A State Department official said in an email obtained by The Associated Press that the government is “focusing on booking refugee travel through February 17,” and they were working to have arrivals resume as soon as Monday.

There are reports that US government had revoked around 60,000 visas to comply with Trump’s order. Confusion during the rollout of the ban initially found green card holders caught in travel limbo, until the White House on Wednesday clarified that they would be allowed to enter and leave the U.S as they pleased.
