Zedd organizes concert to speak out against Trump's travel ban

Protesters chant during a rally against the travel ban at San Diego International Airport

Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, joined in his lawsuit by heavily Democratic California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York and OR, asked for a hearing with a federal judge in Seattle before the administration plans to implement the ban Thursday on new visas for people from six predominantly Muslim nations.

President Donald Trump's first executive order temporarily restricting travel from seven Muslim-majority countries and banning refugees was suspended in federal court.

California joins Washington, Maryland, New York, Oregon, Massachusetts and Minnesota in challenging the new version of the travel ban, which the Trump administration revised so that it would stand in court.

"The Trump administration may have changed the text of the now-discredited Muslim travel ban, but they didn't change its unconstitutional intent and effect", California Attorney General Xavier Becerra wrote.

Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway appeared on "The O'Reilly Factor" to discuss the upcoming legal challenges.

As anticipated, the Trump administration argued that since the new order specifically protects legal usa residents, it doesn't have the harmful effects that Hawaii claims it does. They are asking a judge to halt the order along with Trump's move to lower the total number of refugees accepted by the US this year from 110,000 to 50,000.

This week, as the second act of Trump's immigration strategy plays out, his lawyers' revised travel plan is receiving fire from attorneys general in a growing list of states.

It was Vunipola's first global appearance of this Six Nations after he suffered a knee ligament injury back in November. That is something we want to do to teams - try and take them to a different level and hopefully we can do that.

Washington is joined by four other states, Minnesota, New York and OR, and California, in its legal challenge. "You can't tweet your way out of a 9th Court of Appeals decision".

In Maryland, a federal judge set a hearing for Wednesday morning on a lawsuit brought by refugee aid groups.

Signers on the letter include former Secretary of States Madeline Albright and John Kerry, and several high-ranking military officials such as retired retired Rear Adm. Donald Guter, The Washington Times reported.

The U.S. Travel Assn., the trade group for the nation's $2.1-trillion travel industry, echoed Wooden's comments.

The revised travel ban is scheduled to go into effect on Thursday, March 16.

"I congratulate the Administration for modifying the original order to ensure that it is prospective in application, protective of those with valid visas and legal status, and exempts Iraqis, as five thousand Americans are now fighting alongside them against ISIL".

Justice Department lawyers are ready to do battle to defend the new Trump order in court.

They also own their own pick in the 1st round of the 2018 NFL Draft, and three picks in the 2nd round (own, Eagles , Texans ). It's kind of a stroke of genius for Cleveland , now owners of eight picks in the first two rounds of the next two drafts.

Hawaii became the first state to sue the Trump administration over the second executive order, on similar claims that the ban flouts the constitution's prohibitions on religious discrimination.

Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson has requested that the court hold a hearing Tuesday on the White House's revised travel ban.

Herring, a Democrat who is seeking re-election, has been combating the president's travel orders Trump issued the first order in January.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in a statement Thursday calls the executive order "a Muslim ban by another name".

With this in mind, the Syrian father filed his potentially groundbreaking new complaint on Friday afternoon.

Critics argue that, even though the new order exempts holders of valid visas and permanent residents with so-called green cards, it will have a very negative effect on schools and universities and the business world, mainly the high tech sector, which employs many highly skilled immigrants.
