Trumpâ€™s latest immigration controls face obstacle
Not strictly a sourcing story but relevant in the light of the controversies over H-1B visas and the current US administration’s “America First” view is the status of the president’s latest attempt to “control” immigration.
The latest development – as we write, and things tend to move very quickly in these matters - is that a federal judge in Hawaii has blocked the latest attempt to reinstate the 90-day restriction on certain countries. Trump has been very clear that this isn’t a Muslim ban; unfortunately his advisors have mentioned in the past that he asked them specifically how to make such a thing legal.
The judge’s decision presumably tells us that he hasn’t done so quite yet. Trump, meanwhile, has stated that the judgement is “flawed” and a case of “unprecedented judicial overreach”.
Six other states are also taking action against the ban. Sorry, temporary restriction.
