Trump travel ban: Appeals court casts skeptical eye at revised order


A federal appeals court expressed strong skepticism Monday toward President Trump’s claims of authority in the first hearing on his revised travel ban, signaling in a lively oral argument the judges could strike down parts of the executive order that sought to suspend travel and refugee admissions from certain mostly Muslim countries.

At issue is whether the ban violates the Religion Clauses of the First Amendment, the Due Process Clause of the Fifth and 14th Amendments, and the ban on nationality discrimination in the issuance of immigrant visas contained in a 65-year-old congressional law.
