According to Margaret Huang, Amnesty International USA’s executive director, “It’s always been crystal clear that this policy is discriminatory and cruel at its core.”
“Rather than keeping anyone safe, this ban demonizes millions of innocent people and creates anxiety and instability for people who want to visit a relative, work, study, return to the country they call home, or just travel without fear. The Trump Administration must drop all defenses of this bigoted ban. If they won’t drop their appeals, Congress must step in and nullify this order once and for all,” Huang added.
Oxfam America also welcomed the development, with the organization’s president, Abby Maxman, saying the new ruling, along with the Fourth Circuit’s ruling, mark “a resounding victory for tolerance and freedom. The courts have once again struck down the Trump administration’s attempts to slam the door on refugees and discriminate against Muslims by executive order.”
Earlier this month, the Trump administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit the lower court’s rulings, an effort the American Civil Liberties Union decried as an attempt to revive “a discriminatory affront to the Constitution and the fundamental principle that our country does not discriminate on the basis of religion.”

The new ruling vacated part of the lower court’s ruling allowing the government to conduct internal reviews.
