Federal Judge Blocks Trump’s Third Travel Ban

oday a federal judge largely blocked the Trump administration from implementing the latest version of the president’s controversial travel ban, setting up yet another legal showdown on the extent of the executive branch’s powers when it comes to setting immigration policy. The latest ban was set to fully go into effect in the early morning hours of Wednesday, barring various types of travelers from Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad, Somalia, North Korea, and Venezuela. Judge Derrick K. Watson in Hawaii wrote that the latest ban “suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor: it lacks sufficient findings that the entry of more than 150 million nationals from six specified countries would be ‘detrimental to the interests of the United States.

Demand Transparency from Federal Agencies for “Extreme Vetting” Policies

Touting national security concerns, President Trump has been swiftly implementing burdensome, ineffective, and unnecessary policies through executive actions and memoranda, including implementing several travel bans on Muslim-majority countries and refugees, and now requiring USCIS to conduct in-person interviews with people who have already been thoroughly vetted. Federal agencies like DHS and DOS are not being transparent about how these immigration policies are being developed and administered, leaving individuals and businesses in the dark about how they will be impacted.

Association of Immigration Judges Asserts that Performance Quotas are a Threat to Due Process

The National Association of Immigration Judges (NAIJ) stated that it opposes EOIR’s plan to evaluate immigration judges (IJs) using numerical measures such as performance quotas, stating that “If EOIR is successful in tying case completion quotas to judge performance evaluations, it could be the death knell for judicial independence in the Immigration Courts.” NAIJ also submitted a statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee Oversight Hearing on the DOJ urging Congress to exempt IJs from performance reviews, noting Administrative Law Judges are already exempt because quotas are “antithetical to judicial independence.”  Another attempt by Trump to limit constitutional rights of immigrants

What is the result of Trump trying to deport millions?

The deportation rates of undocumented immigrants have increased in the federal Immigration Court for the first time in eight years as President Trump starts to make good on his promise to expel millions of people. But even as the Trump administration expands its dragnet, the court is so backlogged that some hearings are being scheduled as far in the future as July 2022

Thus, as Trump will see, you cannot just kick everybody out of the country. The US gives rights to people.

Latest Travel Ban Will Weaken, Not Strengthen, America

On September 24, 2017, President Trump issued a presidential proclamation, titled “Enhancing Vetting Capabilities and Processes for Detecting Attempted Entry into the United States by Terrorists or Other Public-Safety Threats,” establishing a new travel ban with visa restrictions on Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. Restrictions vary between countries; DOS has provided information and a chart on the various levels of travel restrictions for nationals of the eight countries.

The new orders will weaken America. It makes the world look at America as the opposite of a welcoming country. It isolates America.
