There are two challenges to the newest so-called travel ban, one in Maryland and one in Hawaii.
An appeal in the Maryland case is being heard on Dec. 8 by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia.
In the Hawaii case, however, a U.S. appeals court in California on Monday let part of President Donald Trump's latest travel ban go into effect, ruling that the government can bar entry of people from six Muslim-majority countries if they have no connections to the United States.
The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals partially granted a Trump administration request to block a lower court decision that had put the new ban on hold.
The interim decision means the ban will apply to people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad who do not have connections to the United States. Those connections are defined as family relationships and "formal, documented" relationships with U.S.-based entities such as resettlement agencies and universities.
The ruling does not affect people from the two other countries listed in Trump's ban, North Korea and Venezuela.https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/us-co ... li=BBnb7Kz
Things under Obama got a lot worse before they started to get better – and they only started to get better after the GOP took over half of Congress and put the brakes on spending.
