WASHINGTON DC: Trump administration has asked the United States Supreme Court to permit its latest travel ban to take full force here yesterday (20th of November, 2017).
It is pertinent to mention here that a Federal Appeals Court ruling last week had permitted President Donald Trump’s latest version of the ban to take effect partly.
The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals permitted the administration to ban people from six (mostly Muslim populated) countries unless they have a relationship with someone in the US.
Last month, a federal judge in Hawaii had congested most of Trump’s third travel ban just before it was due to take effect.
A judge in Maryland distinctly blocked it to a lesser degree, saying “Trump could block people from Chad, Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Yemen as long as they did not have “bona fide” relationships with people or organizations already in the US”.
The travel ban also pertains to travelers from North Korea and to some Venezuelan government officials and their families, but the lawsuits did not challenge those restrictions.
Preventing the president from enforcing the government’s application it was held: “His national-security and foreign-relations judgment will cause ongoing irreparable harm to the government and the public, especially by requiring the executive to disregard the identified inadequacies and by undermining the proclamation’s goal of inducing cooperation by other nations.”
Turkish president says the day is close when they will open Embassy in Jerusalem!
KARAMAN (TURKEY): Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, (sans elaborating how) has stated here today that the day was close when officially Turkey would open their Embassy in Jerusalem.
Speaking to the members of his AK party, Erdoğan pointed out that Turkish CG in the city (harboring Islam’s third holiest shrine) was represented already by an Ambassador.
Cynics go haywire attempting to figure out the modus operandi Turkish president plans to employ in order to transform his wishes into reality as Israel took in the East Jerusalem (back in 1967) and later annexed it.
It is pertinent to reiterate here that Jerusalem – the first Qibla of Muslims – is revered also by Christians and Jews as it also harbors Judaism’s Western Wall.
