The 9th Circuit’s Ruling Denies Stay on Trump’s Travel Ban and the Department of Homeland Security Memorandums—what this Means for Immigrants

The 9th Circuit’s Ruling Denies Stay on Trump’s Travel Ban and the Department of Homeland Security Memorandums—what this Means for Immigrants

By: Texas Board Certified Immigration Attorney, Ruby L. Powers

 February 20, 2017

Three judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit rejected the government’s argument that suspension of President Trump’s Executive Order should be lifted immediately. This means that the ban will not be enforced for now as the case continues to progress in the federal courts.

The appeals court said the government had not justified suspending travel from the seven countries. “The government has pointed to no evidence,” the decision said, “that any alien from any of the countries named in the order has perpetrated a terrorist attack in the United States.”

What does this mean?

At this point, the nationals from the seven countries that were originally enlisted in the travel ban (Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Yemen, and Somalia) are allowed to travel into the United States.

At the Powers Law Group, we encourage all our clients to continue to be cautious about entries and exits in the United States. If you need to travel internationally, contact our office to speak to an experienced immigration attorney to see how it can impact your case.

Department of Homeland Security Memorandums

On February 17, President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) secretary signed two new immigration enforcement instruction memos that essentially make every immigrant in America, legal and undocumented subject to arrest and deportation for the violation, or supposed violation of any law or immigration policy.

President Trump is directing his secretary to strictly enforce immigration laws to the fullest extent. The enforcement mechanisms that Trump is using essentially prioritize deportation for anyone involved or suspected to be involved in crimes. These memos also employ the help of local officials to enforce federal immigration laws in cities. The only program that as of today remains untouched is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA).

With all of the policy changes going on and the tough enforcement of immigration laws forecasted to happen, it is vital for immigrants to understand their rights and the options available to them. Contact an experienced immigration attorney at the Powers Law Group to understand what these policy changes mean to you and what you can do to protect yourself and your family. Please call to schedule a consultation at (713) 589-2085.
