    Donald Trump has, commendably, finally made a statement about the Portland attack in which two men were killed while trying to stop an evidently deranged man from yelling racial epithets at a young woman wearing a hijab.

    Trump's statement said that the victims stood up to "hate and intolerance".

    Even though no one who has been reading my letters or comments in Immigration Daily will mistake me for a Trump supporter, the president's statement in support of these two courageous men who gave their lives fighting against religious bigotry is welcome and he should be congratulated for making it.

    At the same time, a little less hatred and intolerance in the Muslim ban executive order which Trump has been (so far unsuccessfully) defending in the federal circuit courts of appeal, would also be welcome and might help prevent future hate crimes against Muslims in the US.

    If you want to consider another perspective on Trump's travel ban, Andrew Arthur, someone I worked with when I was a Judiciary counsel, just wrote an article on it. In addition to being a Judiciary counsel, he worked for INS and has been an immigration judge.


    Missing the Point on the "Travel Ban"
    A concurrence explains the problems with the Fourth Circuit's analysis of Executive Order 13,780

    As quoted in the article that Nolan cites, 4th Circuit Chief Judge Gregory's opinion states that Trump's order "drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination."

    Can anyone who has been following Trump's statements and actions relating to Muslims both in the very recent past (during the campaign) and after becoming president, when he appointed two notorious Muslim-haters, Bannon and Flynn as his top advisers and engaged in vicious personal attacks on judges who ruled against the first version of his order and accused anyone who disagreed with the order of wanting to let dangerous terrorists into the US, possibly dispute that Judge Gregory's statement was absolutely true?

    And this being true, how can the courts possibly remain blind to this reality if America is to remain a democracy?

    This, even more than the invidious and unconstitutional religious discrimination contained in the ban order itself, is what is really at stake in this lawsuit.

    The Supreme Court will now have to decide whether America will remain a constitutional democracy or a country governed by the untrammeled will of a strongman.

    I have also read the article that Nolan cites but failed to find the words "good faith" anywhere mentioned in the article, even though this was the central issue in the 4th Circuit case.

    Without even mentioning this critically important term (see Mandel, 1972), how can this article be of any value whatsoever?

    Hopefully, Nolan will pick a more relevant article to refer to next time.

    Good afternoon,

    I am writing in regards the article to which I copied the link hereto, http://www.ilw.com/articles/2008,0902-cleveland.shtm

    This story is in regards to a Hondurian woman who was granted asylum. Our office is currently looking for the name of this case in order to cite to it for a current client we have that we are representing for asylum.

    Kindly advise if there is anyway we can get in contact with David Cleveland, as he may perhaps know the case name.

    Thank you for your help.

    What is the significance of Trump's withdrawing America from the Paris Climate Accord?

    It shows that America's president hates not only Muslim, Latino and other non-white immigrants as shown by his six-country Muslim entry ban and mass deportation agenda; that he not only looks down on Asian immigrants as witnessed by his attack on the H-1B visa; that he not only despises African-Americans and less affluent Americans of every color and religion as witnessed by his unspeakably cruel budget proposals; but that in withdrawing from the Paris accord, he also hates the Planet Earth.
