Court allows Trump's travel ban to partially come into effect

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled to allow President Donald Trump's latest travel ban proclamation to go into effect - at least in part.

Trump issued his first travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority countries in January, just a week after he took office, and then issued a revised one after the first was blocked by the courts.

Reuters reports that a three-judge panel of the court partially granted a Trump administration request to temporarily block a previous judge's ruling that had put the new ban on hold, barring people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad who do not have "formal, documented" connections to the United States from traveling there.

Ruling on the injunction issued by the District Court in Hawaii that temporarily blocked the enforcement of the new ban, the Ninth Circuit determined that the travel ban could go into effect for now, except with regard to people with a "bona fide relationship" with close family or with an entity in the US, such as an employer or a university. Grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins of USA citizens can not be stopped from entering the country, according to the order. The United States is going to be very strict with this rule.

A U.S. Justice Department spokeswoman said the government will start enforcing the reinstated travel ban in light of the ruling. It also blocks travel by certain Venezuelan government officials and most North Koreans; courts have not stopped the administration from enacting the restrictions on those countries. It overturned a ruling by a US district court in Hawaii last month that blocked the order temporarily from going into effect. Douglas Chin Hawaii Attorney General said to the court's decision is tracked what exactly was said by Supreme court in the month of June when they received a copy of Donald Trump's second travel ban plan. The families are respected in the ban and are left out of the problem.

Court allows Trump's travel ban to partially come into effect

The Trump administration had unveiled its third travel ban on September 24 after USA courts blocked the first two.

An appeal in the Maryland case is being heard on December 8 by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia.

Critics of the travel ban in its various iterations call it a "Muslim ban" that violates the U.S. Constitution by discriminating on the basis of religion.

The Justice Department sought to put the Hawaii judge's ruling on hold pending arguments scheduled for December 6 at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Seattle.
