Madison judge blocks Donald Trump immigration order for Syrian man

President Donald Trump's revamped travel ban faced another legal challenge Friday when the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint on behalf of several refugee assistance groups over the controversial executive order.

Washington was the first state to sue over the original ban, which resulted in Robart stopping its implementation. That lawsuit, though, was superseded by events when a federal judge in Washington state blocked the travel ban altogether. "In so doing, he also gave both parties an opportunity to fully evaluate whether proceeding in his court is the optimal path for resolving the constitutionality of the second Executive Order".

While Trump has cited national security concerns as the reason for signing the executive order, the fact remains that there have been zero fatal attacks on U.S. soil since 1975 by nationals from the six countries targeted with the ban. Attorneys for the U.S. Department of Justice said the asylum request for the man's wife and daughter is being processed.

In a response notice, Minnesota and Washington argued that sections of the new order have the same effect as the original one and the federal government can not unilaterally decide to change a court's previous ruling.

Poultry farmers urged to take precautions after bird flu outbreak
Since wild waterfowl are considered the main reservoirs of bird flu, farmers and scientists get nervous when birds are migrating. In fact, the shares have fallen nearly 2.6% to $61.92 as of Mar 8, 2017 since the news of bird flu broke out on Mar 5, 2017.

On Thursday, New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced that he was joining Washington in the suit against the travel ban, which he called "a Muslim ban by another name".

Following Trump's initial ban, Iraqi lawmakers had voted for a travel ban on U.S. citizens.

"This is effectively a Muslim ban".

Washington state - the only state to secure a nationwide halt of Trump's first executive order - asked a judge Friday to apply that halt to the revised version.

Ibrahimovic to miss Boro clash
Ibrahimovic was yesterday banned for three games for retaliating to the stamp with an elbow to the head of the 23-year-old. A more severe punishment could also rule him out of the Cherries' fixtures with Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

Iraq was taken off the banned list because its government boosted visa screening and data sharing, White House officials said. He said although the revised order issued on Monday was narrower in scope, it still could be challenged on constitutional grounds.

But the family doesn't have dates for the interviews yet and Trump's new travel ban goes into effect March 16, stirring fears that the process could halt again before visas are issued, according to the Syrian man's attorneys. "I believe this executive order violates the establishment clause of the first amendment because it favors one religion or multiple religions over another, namely Islam", said Arjun Sethi.

Trump issued an executive order in January banning travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries, including Syria, from entering the United States.

"We feel very confident with how that was crafted and the input that was given", Spicer said.
