Trump’s Travel Bans

travel bans In the first months of his presidency, Trump issued travel bans on individuals from Middle Eastern countries. The first, temporarily barring 7 predominately Muslim countries from entry, was quickly blocked by a federal judge in Seattle. Trump appealed to the decision, but the judge’s order was upheld. President Trump decided not to appeal this decision to the Supreme Court.

This led to Trump’s 2nd travel ban, which is a revised version of the first. The original executive order applied to current visa holders from the 7 countries, but this revised version only applies to those who have not yet been issued a visa. It also only applies to 6 countries, taking Iraq off the list of affected nations. The ban on Syrian refugees is no longer permanent and Christians are not given preference in being granted refugee status.

Although the 2nd travel ban was struck down by the US Courts of Appeals in both the 4th and the 9th Circuits, on June 26, 2017, the Supreme Court reinstated parts on the travel ban and agreed to hear the government’s appeals of the lower courts decisions.
