UNITED STATES: Injunction against entry ban upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court injunction barring The Trump Administration from enforcing their second executive order against nationals from six restricted countries and all refugees from any country entering the United States. Their findings were that the President exceeded his constitutional authority in issuing the directive.

Key to note however is that they did overrule the lower courts injunction and will allow the Admiration to go forward with a worldwide visa security review.

How does this affect the client?

Unless the Supreme Court agrees with the Administrations request to lift the injunctions, foreign nationals who would be subject to the executive order may continue to apply for visa and enter the United States.   We would advise nationals of restricted countries to contact their immigration council for updates before traveling abroad or returning to the United States.  

Team Relocations will continue to closely monitor the status of the executive order and will issue updates as developments occur.
