On October 1, a federal judge ordered the Trump administration to stop enforcing parts of a presidential proclamation that banned many foreign workers from entering the United States. The court found that the president likely did not have the authority to issue the ban.
Who does the ruling impact?
The decision, in National Association of Manufacturers v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security, granted a motion for a preliminary injunction to stop the government from enforcing the ban while the court makes a final decision on the case, but only against the plaintiffs who brought the case.
The plaintiffs are four large business associations, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Retail Federation, as well as a company operating cultural exchange programs. The decision applies to all of the hundreds of thousands of businesses that are members of those associations.
