Forbes & Financial Times on the Supreme Court Travel Ban Decision

Forbes & Financial Times on the Supreme Court Travel Ban Decision

On June 26, 2018, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that the Trump administration’s decision to ban the entry of individuals from a group of primarily Muslim countries was constitutional, stating it is within the scope of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

In the wake of the decision I spoke with numerous media, including a Q&A with Forbes discussing the implications of the ruling. That interview can be read here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/stuartanderson/2018/06/27/the-travel-ban-decision-how-bad-for-immigration-policy/#54c1e1e05a81.

I also spoke with Financial Times regarding the unsurprising nature of the decision: https://www.ft.com/content/18cd1f96-794c-11e8-8e67-1e1a0846c475.

National Law Review: With SCOTUS cloud overhead, appeals courts take up travel ban 3.0

National Law Review: With SCOTUS cloud overhead, appeals courts take up travel ban 3.0

I spoke with the National Law Review in the wake of the Supreme Court’s December 4 decision to allow President Trump’s third version of the travel ban to go into effect.

“Given [Monday’s] ruling, both the Fourth and the Ninth circuit are going to try to be extra careful in justifying however they come out,” said Stephen Yale-Loehr, an immigration law professor at Cornell University and of counsel at Miller Mayer. “I think [the] Supreme Court orders signal that the administration may well win at the Supreme Court and that may influence, to a certain extent, how the Fourth and the Ninth circuit rule.”

Travel ban 3.0 differs from its two predecessors in that it expands the list of countries banned to include Venezuela and North Korea. It also includes restrictions that vary based on country in an effort to encourage those countries to adhere to proper procedures.

“For that reason, although an objective person may question how thorough the review is or whether it really matches up with what’s going on, given the very low standard of review, the Supreme Court may well say, it isn’t perfect but it’s good enough,” Yale-Loehr said.

Trump Travel Ban 3.0 More Likely to Survive a Court Challenge

Trump Travel Ban 3.0 More Likely to Survive a Court Challenge

I recently spoke with Deutsche Welle on the third revision of President Trump’s travel ban. The new travel ban is more likely to survive in court, as it bars only certain people from certain countries rather than everyone from a given country. The proclamation includes North Korea and Venezuela, which, as non-Muslim majority countries, which shifts the narrative of the travel ban away from being a Muslim-targeted one. This new, more narrow version of the travel ban may be a success for Trump.

Trump’s Own Tweets Help Kill His Government’s Travel Ban, Again

Trump’s Own Tweets Help Kill His Government’s Travel Ban, Again

I commented again on President Trump’s travel ban tweets and their negative effect defending his legislation. For the second time, the President’s own comments have aided the courts in knocking down his executive order.
