Refugees Race Clock To Enter U.S. While Courts Weigh Ban

Refugees and some foreigners were racing the clock to enter the United States as the Trump administration prepared to press a federal appeals court Monday for reinstatement of its controversial travel ban.
The San Francisco-based court denied the Trump administration's request Sunday but ordered the states of Washington and Minnesota, which filed suit to halt the ban, to provide more details. The Justice Department was told to file its response later Monday.
President Trump issued the travel ban Jan. 27, one week after his inauguration. His executive order suspended entry of all refugees to the U.S. for 120 days, halted admission of refugees from Syria indefinitely and barred entry for three months to citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries — Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
