U.S. Appeals Court in Seattle Hears Arguments on Trump Travel Ban

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Seattle conducted hearings regarding the Trump Administration’s latest travel ban that prohibits citizens from Muslim-majority countries of Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen from entering the U.S. for reasons of preventing terrorism. The travel ban also covers citizens of North Korea and particular officials of Venezuela but were already allowed full enforcement by the Courts. This is in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s prior pronouncement just two days before that the travel ban will take effect pending the hearings being conducted in the lower Ninth and Fourth U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeals in Seattle and Richmond, Virginia. The ultimate fate of the travel ban will be known once the two U.S. Appeals Courts decide and whether further appeal will be taken to the U.S. Supreme Court.
