Appeal Court's First Look At Revised Trump Travel Ban A 'Major Presidential Test'

A United States Federal Court is to hear the arguments of the revised executive order by US President Donald Trump, which would ban travelers from different Muslim-majority countries or hold their entry into the United States for not more than 90 days. The first look at the Trump travel ban is considered a "major presidential test" specifically geared towards immigration.

According to Fox News, Richmond's 4th Circuit US Court of Appeals would hear the case in a public oral argument along with San Francisco's 9th Circuit. The last version of the travel ban has moved to defer entrance against six Muslim-majority countries including Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The White House said the move to ban their entry is only temporary as it involves issues of national security.

According to the US Justice Department, the travel ban does not mention any religion and the suspension in the prospective executive order would be initiated to protect the US by addressing concerns of "national security."

According to NPR, the 9th Circuit Court judges had taken into account all the statements of US President Donald Trump during his campaign period, which involved xenophobic and racial slurs he used as part of his rhetoric. According to Judge Henry Floyd, speaking to Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall, those statements are part of the creation of the executive order and denying their existence meant being "willfully blind."

The International Refugee Assistance Project said the impact of the prospective executive order was severe against refugees. According to IRAP Director Rebecca Heller, vulnerable refugees were trapped in life-threatening conditions without receiving adequate help.

The second revision of the Trump travel ban excluded Iraq from the list of banned countries and also lifted the indefinite ban against Syrian refugees entering the United States. The third revision said the executive order only focused on individuals entering the United States without a Visa.
