4th Circuit Hears Arguments In Challenge To Trump's Travel Ban

The U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday heard oral arguments (audio of full oral arguments) in International Refugee Assistance Project v. Trump.  In the case, a Maryland federal district court refused to dismiss Establishment Clause, due process and equal protection challenges to President Trump's third travel ban Proclamation. (See prior posting.) The case had been remanded by the U.S. Supreme Court in light of its rejection of an Establishment Clause challenge in a parallel case. Brown County Democrat reports on the oral arguments.
