Court rejects Trump administration attempt to include extended family in travel ban

Source: Politico

An appeals court on Thursday rejected the Trump administrationís attempt to deny grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins of Americans an exemption from President Donald Trumpís travel ban executive order.

A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously declined to overturn a district court judgeís ruling that the administration was taking too narrow a view of an exception the Supreme Court carved out from the travel ban in June.


The appeals court panel also cleared the way for a greater flow of refugees, declining to disturb a lower court order that those already assigned to resettlement agencies can enter the U.S. despite Trumpís order.

The revised travel ban Trump issued in March suspends issuance of U.S. visas to residents of six majority-Muslim countries and halts admission of refugees from across the globe. The Supreme Court has set arguments on the banís legality for October 10.

Trump loses another court ruling. The SCOTUS had previously made clear that the grandparent issue and now the 9th Circuit cleared the way for persons with visas who have been assigned to a relief organization to enter the United States

I agree with this. I never understood the Humpty Dumpty rationale of allowing in a MIL and not grandparents, cousins, grandkids, etc.
