Full 4th Circuit to hear Trump’s revised travel ban appeal

The full 15-judge panel of a federal appeals court will examine a challenge to President Donald Trump's revised travel ban next month.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the case on May 8.

Appeals are typically heard first by a three-judge panel before they are possibly examined by all 15 judges. But the Richmond, Virginia-based court said Monday that Trump's case will go straight to the full court.

The Trump administration is appealing a ruling in Maryland that blocked the ban's prohibition on new visas for people from six predominantly Muslim countries.

A federal judge in Hawaii has also blocked the revised executive order. The president's lawyers have appealed that ruling to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals based in San Francisco.


Let’s hope justice is done.

Hmmm, now that Gorsuch is on the court, can there be any doubt this EO will be upheld?  There may be some parts of the original order that were in violation of due process rights for folks currently in the country, but the notion that any group has a right to enter the U.S. is nuts.  It’s this multiculturalism movement gone terribly awry.  It doesn’t matter if folks within the country are more likely to commit terrorism, the people through their elected government have a right to restrict new entrants to the U.S. who may cause harm regardless of how likely terrorist acts by such entrants’ are.  If you don’t like the EO, organize politically.  Don’t get the courts to make silly rulings.
