Two US States Against Trump Travel Ban

A story by the Associated Press today reports that attorneys for Washington State and Minnesota told a federal appellate court that restoring US President Donald Trump’s travel ban would “unleash chaos again”. The states said that any restoring of the travel ban would separate families and strand university students and faculty. Two former secretaries of state John Kerry and Madeleine Albright stated the ban would, “disrupt lives and cripple U.S. counter terrorism partnerships around the world without making the nation safer.” No mention was made in the report of other options the US should consider to protect itself from terrorists.
