      II.  Federal District Judge Blocks Executive Order

      On January 28, 2017, United States Judge Ann M. Donnelly blocked part of President Donald Trump's controversial executive order, ruling that authorities could not deport individuals from the seven abovementioned Muslim-majority countries, who had arrived in US airports after the order had been issued. 

      Judge Donnelly held that the petitioners had a "strong likelihood of success" in establishing that their removal "violates their rights to Due Process and Equal Protection guaranteed by the United States Constitution."

      III. Ninth Circuit Maintains Block on Executive Order


      On February 9, 2017, the Ninth Circuit unanimously rejected President Trump’s bid to reinstate his ban on travel into the United States from seven largely Muslim nations. The three-judge panel, suggesting that the ban did not advance national security, said the administration had shown “no evidence” that anyone from the seven nations had committed terrorist acts in the United States. The ruling also rejected Mr. Trump’s claim that courts are powerless to review a president’s national security assessments.
