Judge Bars Enforcement Of Trump's Revised Travel Ban

In the latest legal setback for President Trump's attempt to change US immigration policy, a federal judge in Madison, Wisconsin, William Conley, blocked Trump's revised travel ban on Friday, barring enforcement of the policy to deny U.S. entry to the wife and child of a Syrian refugee who was already granted asylum in the United States. Conley's temporary restraining order applies only to the family of the Syrian refugee, who brought the case anonymously to protect the identities of his wife and daughter who still live in Aleppo.

U.S. District Judge William Conley

The ruling represents the first of several challenges brought against Trump's newly amended executive order, issued on March 6 and due to go into effect on March 16, to draw a court ruling in opposition to its enforcement.

Conley, who was appointed by President Barack Obama and is chief judge of the federal court in Wisconsin's western district, concluded the plaintiff "has presented some likelihood of success on the merits" of his case and that his family faces "significant risk of irreparable harm" if forced to remain in Syria according to Reuters

"The court appreciates that there may be important differences between the original executive order, and the revised executive order," Conley wrote in his decision. "As the order applies to the plaintiff here, however, the court finds his claims have at least some chance of prevailing for the reasons articulated by other courts."

The plaintiff, a Sunni Muslim, fled Syria to the United States in 2014 to "escape near-certain death" at the hands of sectarian military forces fighting the Syrian government in Aleppo, according to his lawsuit. He subsequently obtained asylum for his wife and their only surviving child, a daughter, and their application had cleared the security vetting process and was headed for final processing when it was halted by Trump's original travel ban on Jan. 27.

It was not all bad news for Trump however. In a related development on Friday, the federal judge in Seattle who imposed a nationwide injunction on enforcement of the original travel ban refused a request to apply that order to the revised policy, saying that lawyers from states opposed to the measure needed to file more extensive court papers.

The judge needs a one-way ticket to Raqqa.

I hear that their “judicial” system is very good.   ;-)

Judges trying to steal executive power. They need to be removed from the bench, disbarred, lose all forms of government compensation, including pensions and social security payments, and be forced to repay all wages they have ever received from the government, with interest.

Since when are Syrians the responsibility of a US DOMESTIC Judge whom get shis authority at the will of the people?


These judges need to start facing prison time for obstruction of Justice, and putting Americans at risk to protect people in another country...

I am so fucking sick of this judicial activism bullshit. Someone needs to apply rule .308 to these fucks, post-haste.

...to "escape near-certain death" at the hands of sectarian military forces fighting the Syrian government in Aleppo

Oh, oh, oh.... You mean those military forces supported by O'bambam and Hitlery?

LOL, that last judge was Pre-Sessions. Sessions will ramrod this right to the SCOTUS and assfuck this judge hard.

Once Assad and the Russians purify Syria by wiping out our proxy forces, all these Syrian refugees can be sent back home.  Somalia is a Libertarian Paradise, berefit of a state or regime, so they can all be sent back, too.  In the meantime, all incoming refugees can be housed in this judge's residence, and supported at his expense.

Excellent point! Of course it aint just Obongo & Hitlery but a whole freaking slew of Americans who are guilty of war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, etc.


The biggest enemies of human rights reside in DC & NYC.

Why do Arab and African men always leave women and children behind when seeking welfare privileges abroad?

John Kerry-Heinz's picture

Ask yourself this question and this question only.  What kind of Man abandons his Wife and only surviving child in an active meat grinder war zone so he can escape and then applies for thier asylum years later?  Who the fuk is going to help them survive!  This is so fucking sick, words do not do it justice.  As Obama has stated many times, these are OUR values.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://bit.ly/2jdTzrM

I wonder if this judge smiled when he read that more then 50 innocent people were murdered in Orlando and many more seriously injured?

San Bernardino must have given him and Robart and the 9th Circus orgasms...maybe mutiple.

rahrog's picture

Right. This piece of shit coward should never have been let into the shopping mall known as the USA (Which blew up his country to start with).


His ass should be dropped right back into Syria.


The fag judge needs to be fed to the hogs.


IntTheLight's picture

You beat me to it! Its not normal.

But it is all fake. These men just want handouts from foolish stupid white people. So they claim to be refugees.

Granted, I'm not surprised Muslims and Africans think so poorly of their women that they leave them. That's their nature.

and then, as a final humiliation, be given a double secret atomic wedgie by Donald Trump on the steps of the Supreme Court building.

Prior to the insertion of ISIS into Syria, it was a non-sectarian state. ISIS are extreme Sunni yet here we have a Sunni who fled Syria because of sectarian violence in 2014 yet he left his family behind. Something doesn't quite add up. Was he a CIA agent in Syria during the early phases of the destabilization?

TwelveOhOne's picture

Look at all those books behind him!  He must have read them, or something.

I've got to get me one of these Judges; could come in handy.

"Judge Conley here says I own Tennessee.  So let it be written, so let it be done!  Moving in Tuesday."

Reminds me of an old classic, "Never attempt to extort more money than it would cost to have you killed."

Looks like incompetent Trump and his also ultimately incompetent administration have failed again. It more and more looks like a failed presidency.

Buffoon Trump anticipated to govern America by a decree. It does not work this way. Either he has to do by working with the US Congress by changing the Law or he has to "go to people' by calling these fed judges terrorist sympathizers and collaborators and asking the Congress to impeach them. But to do so one must be a skillful politician and, the most important, one must have guts!

"Only applies to this family, since they were previously granted asylum"  - THEM AND THE OTHER 100,000 22YR OLD MALES!

1. This Judge needs to rush in his resignation papers.

2. This judge NEEDS to welcome this family into his home, and provide financial support for this family for AS LONG AS IT IS NEEDED.

I say, put your family safety where your mouth is! (or should I say "your pen"

When do Trump supporters start to use the anti-trump techniques of violence and fear against their own opponents?

Since we see the law looks the other way when Hillary (anti-trump) thugs beat people up and bomb rnc offices, maybe it's time to use some of those "self-help" techniques? Maybe some patriots should visit this guys chambers and speak to him?

Just get yo self a black mask and a stick and threaten these judges as you scream at them, "Raycist, sexiest, Not my judge, ... " and so on. The violence and subversive behavior seems to work for Hillary and Obama people with no adverse ramifications.

TwelveOhOne's picture

No.  The end never justifies the means.  But thanks for outing yourself.

Never One Roach's picture

You migth mention that myth to the Hillary/soros thugs.

Abaco's picture

Your point is well taken.  However, beating the shit out of this judge is eminently justifiable. He is a traitor and a tyrant who uses respect for the law to subvert the law itself. 

stubb's picture

I've started to wonder myself if we should stop being the good guys, at least temporarily. These deranged fucks are out to destroy the nation, and they have made considerable progress toward that goal. Maybe we should start responding to that with more than words. 

ersatz007's picture

Two questions:

1) why isn't Saudi Arabia included?
2) why aren't we focusing more on stopping what's causing the refugee crisis in the first place?

Two answers:
1) petrodollar
2) military industrial complex

Of course I am oversimplifying but.....

Syria is a member of the UN C24 decolonisation committee and supports Argentina's mythical Malvinas' claim. So much for the human and democratic rights of the Falkland Islanders and so much for that so-called sovereignty claim:

The judge will be personally responsible for financial support of the refugees I presume? 

maxamus's picture

Just like you alt-righters will be responsible for financial support of all those abortions you want to outlaw???

TwelveOhOne's picture

There are many people wanting children who cannot conceive.  It's difficult for them to adopt due to the laws (which, likely, are funneling orphans into #pizzgate/#pedogate).  So, yes, there will be people who will care for those children once the government-caused and -supported damage is undone.

Abaco's picture

And you and your fellow shitheads will assume financial responsibility for not murdered because of those laws? So tiresome having people lime you who think they are clever but are incapable of reason popping off in places like this.

ersatz007's picture

And where was the left expressing the outrage they currently feel towards the alt right when Obama and Hillary were piling on and creating this refugee crisis in the first place?

Where were the pussy-hat marchers when Bill Clinton was in office? Or is saying a thing worse than actually commiting the act?

The hypocrisy of which you accuse the right is also alive and well and equally rampant on the left.

I support abortion for all low IQ nonwhites! Just like Margaret Sanger did. Ha ha!

Since when does an unelected judge out rank the President of the United States???

Am I in an alternate fucking reality or something????

swmnguy's picture

You might very well be.

In this reality, in the United States of America, the President has to operate under the law.  I don't always like the law, like the laws that allow the President to kill people with drones and wiretap every person on Earth.

But the legal and binding agreements of the United States of America carry the force of law.  A person who has been granted asylum can't just be denied it, without due process.  

C'mon guys, have you turned into a bunch of Royalists now?  Wanting to repeal Roe V. Wade or ACA is one thing.  You want Trump to repeal the Magna fuckin' Carta?

Abaco's picture

Listen fucktard - according to the story the dude had asylum and his wife and kid didn't.  They were in the process when Trumps order put the kibosh on their request. You have everything wrong.
