Federal Judge Accepts Trump's 2nd Travel Ban; Rules Pres.Justified by National Security Power

President Donald Trump's revised immigration order -- which suspends immigrants and refugees in terrorist-inclined countries from entering the United States -- found a victory in Virginia federal court, the UPI website reports today (March 26, 2017).

U.S. District Court Judge Anthony Trenga ruled on March 24 in favor of the president's revised executive order, which has been blocked by two previous court rulings.

Trenga said that the revised order is different enough from the original that injunctions granted against the first action are no longer applicable.

"The President has provided a detailed justification for the Order based on national security needs ... to conduct international relations, provide for the national defense, and secure the nation," he wrote.
