Virginia Federal District Judge Anthony Trenga rules in favor of Trump’s revised Executive Order

A federal district court in Virginia has now ruled in favor of the revised Trump Executive Order banning visas to persons from six predominantly Muslim countries. The court held that earlier Trump statements did not “fatally infect” the second version of the Order. Irrespective of this opinion, the nation-wide injunctions issued by two other district courts continue in force.

 

My guess is that, as these cases wind their way through the courts, courts of appeals (and perhaps the Supreme Court, if it hears the case) will agree with the Virginia decision.
