Trump Trouble:

Travel And Immigration Ban On Seven Muslim Dominated Nations By Executive Order On January 27, 2017 –  Order Now Being Challenged In Courts.   

On January 27, 2017, under the pretense of stemming terrorism within the U.S., President Trump, by Executive Order, banned entry into the U.S. of travelers from the following Muslim dominated nations including: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The Presidents Executive Order was then stayed by a Federal District Court and a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) relating to the travel ban issued. The TRO had the effect of  lifting the Travel Ban temporarily. This was then followed by a February 4th 2017 Federal Appellate Court emergency ruling affirming the Districts Court’s Constitutional right to issue a TRO and agreed to hear the matter which will then, depending on the ruling,  make its way on to the Supreme Court for a final adjudication.   (Read Updates)
