Judge: Trump travel ban can’t be enforced on Syrian family

Source: CBS News

“A federal judge on Friday blocked President Trump’s administration from enforcing his new travel ban against a Syrian family looking to escape their war-torn homeland by fleeing to Wisconsin. … A Syrian Muslim man who was granted asylum and settled in Wisconsin has been working since last year to win U.S. government approval for his wife and 3-year-old daughter to leave the devastated city of Aleppo and join him here. … The Syrian man filed a new complaint on Friday afternoon, alleging the new order is still an anti-Muslim ban that violates his freedom of religion and right to due process. He asked Conley to block its enforcement against his family. [US District] Judge Conley granted that request, saying there were daily threats to the Syrian man’s wife and child that could cause ‘irreparable harm.’ He issued a temporary restraining order barring enforcement against the family.” (03/11/17)
