Iranians Brush Off US Travel Ban

The court will hear full arguments in the legal challenges to the travel ban in October.

"It appears that individuals from the six listed countries seeking to study, engage in other scholarly activity, or work at Boston University would have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a U.S. entity, allowing them to be granted a new visa", says Willis Wang, a BU vice president, associate provost for global programs, and deputy general counsel.

Immigration advocates and administration officials are likely to disagree about what exactly is a credible claim of a "bona fide relationship".

The President's order blocks travel from six predominately Muslim countries: Iran, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Sudan.

The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday it will hear the case of a suburban Denver baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple on faith-based grounds, in the latest religious freedom case to be considered before the nation's highest court. This was to be a temporary ban, remember.

CBO Deals Blow To Senate's TrumpCare Bill; Sen
OH participates in Obamacare's Medicaid expansion , and Republican Governor John Kasich has criticized the Senate bill. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell , who praised the CBO's findings, is pushing for a vote on the bill this week.

Hetfield criticized the fact that those without such ties could now be barred from entering the United States.

Under these plans, largely orchestrated by White House adviser Stephen Miller, tourists from those countries and any academics, lecturers or others invited to speak or make presentations in the US will be barred. And some opponents argued that the order actually harms national security, as Stanford Law School's Shirin Sinnar notes, "by alienating partners, diminishing global trust in the United States and feeding extremist narratives that the United States is at war with Islam".

He says that the ban "doesn't increase anybody's security, unfortunately, and it's regrettable that. the citizens of the countries on the list have never taken part in any act of terrorism against the United States". For people who want to come to the United States to work or study, "the relationship must be formal, documented and formed in the ordinary course, not for the objective of evading" the travel ban. The path to entry into the United States for immigrants and refugees from the affected nations, if they don't have existing ties to the U.S. - either through family, schools or employment - just became considerably harder.

Goldman says, many refugees work with organizations outside the United States.

Trump repeatedly thanked Modi for visiting the USA and the White House, saying he enjoyed their "very productive conversation". Modi said he wanted to bring the US-India "strategic partnership to new heights".

Like the fate of would-be tourists and scholars, the immediate future for refugees is murky.

On Thursday, two portions of President Trump's travel plan will go into effect. But Mr. Mangalji said refugees could make a legal argument that the executive order means the United States is no longer safe for them. The delays and protests that erupted at airports may explain assurances issued by administration officials after the Supreme Court ruling.

"People were coming at the beginning of the year because there was fear of mass deportation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement".

It was blocked by a judge in NY just a day later, and by February 3 US District Court Judge James Robert blocked the ban nationwide. Iran is one of the six mostly Muslim countries that are included in the travel ban.

Trump has declared the ban would take effect 72 hours after being cleared by courts.

That was the key thing. "Pete, Lenny (skipper Glenn Ashby) and the boys do a fantastic job of getting the boat round the course". Races seven and eight are scheduled for Sunday , with the contest now sure to go at least until Monday.

"Today's unanimous Supreme Court decision is a clear victory for our national security", he said.
