President Trump travel ban freeze to remain in place after court appeal

The latest development in the saga of President Donald Trump's immigration order took place earlier today, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit ruled that a freeze placed on the enforcement of the order by a Maryland federal judge should remain effective. According to the court, the order was rife with constitutional issues.

While the Trump administration had argued that the countries targeted for the travel ban were selected because they present the risk of terrorism, that argument was met with skepticism by those who said it was only a pretext. The Maryland judge who ordered the enforcement freeze did so on the grounds that Trump's immigration order--specifically the so-called "travel ban"--is intentionally discriminatory against those of the Muslim faith. 

Other court decisions against the order have also been delivered. At this point, the next possibility is for the President's administration to petition the Supreme Court to stay the 4th Circuit opinion, and it looks to be the case that the Trump Administration will be pursuing that option.

For many people, of course, the whole travel ban debacle is a perfect example of President Trump's mistaken immigration policy. For others, his efforts with respect to immigration policy are just an attempt to implement the immigration views of many Americans. Either way you see it, the fact remains that immigrants have certain rights and these rights deserve to be protected. Immigrants who find themselves threatened by the actions of authorities need to get in contact with an experienced immigration law attorney to ensure their rights are protected.
