Detour for Donald’s immigration ban
Donald Trump’s immigration ban has been rejected by a court appeal. The major setback happened on Thursday when a panel of three judges upheld an injunction against Donald Trump.
The White House and two US states legally challenging the ban – Washington and Minnesota – have until Monday to present further evidence backing up their respective arguments.
Then the court could schedule a hearing or rule on whether the ban should remain suspended.
Trump took to twitter to show his anger.
Trump had imposed a 90 day ban from seven muslim countries, including Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Yemen and Somalia on the 27th of January. This caused havoc and confusion at airports around the country as green-card holders tried to get into the United States.
The court rejected much of his argument in its ruling. The panel wrote “although courts owe considerable deference to the president’s policy determinations with respect to immigration and national security, it is beyond question that the federal judiciary retains the authority to adjudicate constitutional challenges to executive action”.
There are roughly 20 lawsuits against the immigration ban currently. Donald Trump however, took to twitter when the decision was made saying he would,”See you in court, the security of our nation is at stake!”
Social media was in a fury when the ban went through. Millions of people were sharing stories of green card holders that were being banned from entering a country they have lived in for years.
The ban is said to have an effect on American companies, such as Apple, Google and Microsoft. They said that the ban would affect the sales and the american business, as well as growth and innovation. They also argued that “200 out of the forbes 500 were founded by immigrants.”
