“The Washington Post” said : Judges shouldn’t ignore what we all know Trump’s travel ban is really about
David Cole is national legal director of the ACLU, which along with the National Immigration Law Center is representing the plaintiffs in the Maryland case challenging the travel ban.
When Trump signed the first travel ban, he said, “We all know what that means.” We do, indeed.
But the Trump administration insists that judges cannot consider the purpose of those who drafted and promulgated the order.
Establishing religion has never been a proper goal of immigration law — or any law.
But the Trump administration has advanced no reason why immigration law should be a tool for denigrating religion.

What travel experts are saying about the airline electronics ban
Airline analyst Jamie Baker at J.P. Morgan Chase said in a client note the electronics ban “may materially alter business flows” and “could prove a long-term deterrent to business travel.”
Travel groups and industry experts say the regulation, announced Tuesday, will hurt business travel, and raises a fire-safety concern in putting the electronic devices containing lithium-ion batteries in the cargo hold on planes.
“The productivity hit on business travelers and their organizations will be significant, if not intolerable,” Mitchell said.
“Of deeper concern will be trade secrets and other sensitive and valuable information that are stored on many business travelers’ laptops that could be copied or stolen.”
Others say an explosive device in the cargo hold could be triggered by a variety of mechanisms, including a mobile phone in the passenger cabin.
