Appeals Court Upholds Injunction Against Travel Ban

On May 25, 2017, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld the District Court’s nationwide preliminary injunction halting the enforcement of the travel ban set forth in the executive order on immigration issued on March 6, 2017.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is also evaluating a nationwide preliminary injunction against the executive order in a separate appeal and it is not yet known when the court will rule. However, as long as one nationwide injunction remains in place, the travel ban cannot go into effect.
