Judge Andrew Napolitano discussed the current status of the travel ban during a “Judge Napolitano’s Chambers” segment on Wednesday.
The Trump administration proposed the travel ban, halting migration from six Muslim-majority countries that sponsor terrorism.
The move was rendered unconstitutional by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in January, but in June, the Supreme Court announced that it had decided to review the case in October, following a recess. In the interim, certain parts of the ban could be put into action.
There were exceptions made to the travel ban, and those with close ties were to be allowed entrance. The exceptions included visa applicants who are able to prove a “bona fide” relationship with a U.S. citizen or entity.
As the feud between President Trump and the federal courts over the Executive Order Protecting The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States continues, Judge Napolitano explained the current progress of the ban in the segment, which can be viewed below.
