Immigration Update: United States
Further Immigration Update Concerning President Trump’s Executive Order Barring Entry From Seven Countries
15 Feb 2017
To our valued Santa Fe Relocation customers,
Santa Fe has previously reported that a Federal Judge in Washington state had placed a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) on President Trump’s Executive Order barring entry of foreign nationals from seven countries, for a period of 90 days, arguing that it was negatively impacting the economy of Washington.
The decision by the Washington Judge was appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. On Thursday, February, 9, 2017, three judges from the federal appeals panel, in a unanimous 29-page opinion, rejected the government’s argument that suspension of the order should be lifted immediately for national security reasons.
What the Ruling Means?
- Previously barred refugees and citizens from these seven majority-Muslim countries can continue entering the United States
- We would suggest that, if you are from one of the previously banned countries, travel remains risky as President Trump has vowed to continue to appeal the case and the Supreme Court could stay (stop) the Temporary Restraining Order which would reinstate the ban against entry.
We will continue to monitor the news to keep our clients updated on potential changes to the US immigration system.
