travel ban

US President Donald Trump’s request for the reimplementation of his controversial travel ban has been denied after gaining unanimous votes of the three panel of judges of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California.

This would only mean that refugees and citizens from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen are still free to enter United States of America.

“On the one hand, the public has a powerful interest in national security and in the ability of an elected president to enact policies,” stated in a part of the appeals

“And on the other, the public also has an interest in free flow of travel, in avoiding separation of families, and in freedom from discrimination. We need not characterize the public interest more definitely than this… The emergency motion for a stay pending appeal is denied.”

Based on the federal district court had said that Trump’s Executive Order is basically unconstitutional and it is plain discrimination for the Muslims.

On Trump’s defense, the said Travel Ban is for the security of their country, and through this, they can block all threats from radical Islamists.

The three judges who decided consist of a Democratic and Republican appointee. Meanwhile, Trump also questioned these panel of judges who denied his travel ban from being reinstated.-EPJA
