Seattle Federal Judge, James L. Robart, issued a temporary nationwide ruling against US President Donald Trump’s travel ban on nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries, in Seattle on Friday. The ruling was made at the request of Washington and Minnesota states.
“The state has met its burden in demonstrating immediate and irreparable injury,” Robart said, before adding that “this temporary restraining order is granted on a nationwide basis and prohibits enforcement of Sections 3c, 5a, 5b, 5c, and 5e of the Executive Order at all United States borders and ports of entry pending further orders from this court.”
On Monday, a lawsuit challenging key provisions of Trump’s order was filed in the Seattle federal court. If the lawsuit wins, the executive order could be permanently invalidated nationwide.
