2017 Immigration Issues

On February 9, 2017, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously against the Government’s emergency motion to stay the District Court’s Temporary Restraining Order (the “TRO”) halting the implementation of major portions of President Trump’s January 27th Executive Order. (See our previous alerts on the order here, or click here to view a video featuring Susan Cohen, Chair of Mintz Levin’s Immigration Practice.)  Therefore, the TRO remains in effect and travel to the U.S. by individuals from the seven designated countries is governed by the same laws as existing before the Executive Order.
