Trump DOJ to Appeal Maryland Ruling Against Muslim Ban 2.0

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The Trump administration on Friday filed papers to appeal a ruling that blocked the president's revised travel ban, setting up a new legal showdown over the executive order that opponents have called "Muslim ban 2.0."

I haven't read the decision from Maryland. I hope it is as thorough as the one in Hawaii even though it is a PI instead of a TRO, and the 4th Circuit. I'd like to know if the Maryland ruling is overturned, what effect, if any would that have on the Hawaii TRO? Would it stay in effect until a further appeal to the SCOUS? And just who is the Solicitor General nowadays? I can't recall hearing about that nomination.

It is going to be hard to argue that that this Muslim ban is constitutional, particularly after Trump announced he intended to ban all Muslims from immigrating to the US.

Yes but now the question is how much consideration the court can give to his previous comments.
