A second federal judge has ruled to stop the implementation of President Donald Trump’s new travel restrictions, though he did so by different legal reasoning than the first and crafted an order that is more limited in scope.
BAL Analysis: Foreign nationals can travel to the United States whether or not applicants have claims of “bona fide” ties to the U.S., because the Hawaii ruling, which is broader in scope, applies throughout the country. Appellate courts may yet reverse the decisions or could adopt a narrower scope than the Hawaii ruling did. If implemented, the new restrictions would not dramatically expand the number of employees subject to travel restrictions for most companies. BAL prepared an FAQ on the restrictions when they were released in September. The full analysis is available here.
