Judge Sides With Trump, Says Travel Ban Neither Discriminatory Nor Unconstitutional

Assuming the circuit court agrees, that would set up a necessary Supreme Court showdown to harmonize the divergent rulings.

A federal judge in Virginia ruled Friday against blocking President Trumpís executive order that called for temporarily stopping the entry of immigrants from six majority-Muslim nations and refugee admittance overall.

The decision against the injunction comes after federal judges in Maryland and Hawaii blocked the implementation of Trumpís executive order nationwide. The ruling in Maryland is set to be heard before an appeals court in May. These two past decisions keep the order at bay.

Judge Anthony Trenga of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia found that Trump was within his legal rights to impose the travel ban and that it was not discriminatory toward Muslims. The injunction had been brought forward by Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, who was represented by an attorney from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

You're probably wondering, "What happens when one federal judge claims to have the power to enjoin a policy for the entire country, but another judge says it's fine and should be enacted as ordered?"

I don't know.

Hopefully a lawyer can tell us.
