President Trump’s effort to ban people from 6 Muslim countries to enter US has faced a series of legal setbacks. A federal appeals court has stated that the ban is purely based on discrimination because of race, nationality or ethnicity. It actually lacks justification on the issue of national security.
The US Court of Appeals has rejected this ban on the basis of federal immigration law instead of constitution’s religious protection. Hence, a number of points have come into consideration on the basis of which the Supreme Court might reject the appeal as well. Majority of other courts have also stated the ban as purely a discrimination case against Muslims which has no legal basis.
However, as the US Court of Appeals submitted the arguments to the Supreme Court and has released a decision as lengthy as 7-08 pages, there are two possibilities. The Supreme Court might decide to hear the case right now or later in the fall, and whether to continue or let go of the ban in the meantime.
The panel has stated that the citizens 6 countries namely Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen are not shown to contribute to any conflict or the cause of insecure national conditions. No link has been found out between an individual’s nationality and its association with any kind of terrorist activity. Unless this case is now snubbed, it is expected of the court to hear all the facts and arguments on the issues before making a final statement.
