U.S. Courts Block Trump's Latest Travel Ban of 8 Countries

A United States federal judge has blocked President Trump's third travel ban limiting visitor to the U.S. from eight countries.

The most recent ban was scheduled to go into effect in the early hours of Wednesday, October 18, barring travelers from Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad, Somalia, North Korea and Venezuela. U.S. District Judge Derrick K. Watson in Hawaii's order stops it with respect to all the countries except North Korea and Venezuela.

Judge Watson wrote that the executive order “plainly discriminates based on nationality” in a way that is opposed to federal law and “the founding principles of this Nation.”

I used Ackah Business Immigration Law to assist me during my application process for a work permit. Evelyn and her team provided great support whenever I needed it and made it possible for me to perform my one-year internship at McGill University. I had the feeling that they cared about by immigration to a high extent and without their help, I would not have been able to get my work permit.
