Trump’s Travel Ban: No Mas! – Huffington Post
President Trump campaigned for office in part upon a promise that, if elected, he would institute a “Muslim ban” barring all Muslims from entry to the United States. Just a week into his new administration, the president issued an executive order temporarily barring foreigners from certain select, and largely Muslim, countries from entering the United States. Chaos ensued at airports around the world. A federal judge in Seattle issued a nation-wide temporary restraining order blocking implementation of the order. The government appealed this decision to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals which upheld the lower court’s ban on the travel ban. And there the matter stood for over a month while the Administration debated what to do next.
