Muslim advocacy group seeks broader travel-ban injunction
by Matthew Barakat
A federal judge in Virginia is weighing a request from a Muslim civil rights group for an even broader injunction against President Donald Trump's proposed travel ban than what other judges have imposed.
Federal judges in Hawaii and Maryland have blocked the vast majority of Trump's revised ban, which would restrict immigration by refugees and from six majority-Muslim countries.
Lawyers for the Council on American-Islamic Relations asked a judge in Alexandria on Tuesday to issue an injunction against the entire executive order. Attorney Gadeir Abbas said Section 3 of the order, which affects how visa applicants can seek waivers, remains in force and should be blocked as well.
