[U] Grandparents ARE Family — Over Coffee At The Beach…
July 14, 2017

That. . . was essentially immediate. Updated: 07.17.17 — The Trump Administration has filed a notice of appeal, in the Ninth Circuit, as well as asked the Supremes to review and clarify. They will not prevail. End, update.

Trump Ban 2.0 thwarted — Again! The law is clear, here:

. . . .Upon careful consideration of the parties’ expedited submissions, the Court concludes that on the record before it, Plaintiffs have met their burden of establishing that the requested injunctive relief is necessary to preserve the status quo pending appeal regarding the definition of “close familial relationship” employed by the Government with respect to Sections 2(c), 6(a) and 6(b) of EO-2.

Plaintiffs have similarly met their burden with respect to refugees with a formal assurance, as it relates to the Government’s implementation of Sections 6(a) and 6(b) of EO-2, and participants in the Lautenberg Program. Plaintiffs’ Motion is accordingly GRANTED in these respects. . . .

 

Lovely — and just. Sipping hot coffee, at the beach — where I found some cell service. All this — by iPhone (Huzzah!). More later.
