President Trump’s immigration ban includes a 90-day suspension of admission of refugees from 11 countries, and a full suspension of the so-called follow-to-join process, which reunites family members with refugees already in the US. However, US District Judge, James Robart of the federal court in Seattle, ruled that the federal government must process refugee applications for people “with a bona fide relationship to a person or entity within the United States.” This ruling was in spite of the Supreme Court’s ruling that Trump’s ban was Constitutional. The lower court challenges were brought by a Jewish pro-immigration group and the ACLU.
