Torture victims in high court challenge to Home Office over detentions | Law | The Guardian
Seven victims of torture who have been locked up in immigration detention are at the high court, challenging as unlawful a government policy that allows some torture survivors to be imprisoned.

The seven, who include victims of trafficking, a man kidnapped by the Taliban, and two men tortured because of their sexuality, say the government should no longer be able to routinely incarcerate people who have experienced persecution. The charity Medical Justice, which works to improve the health of immigration detainees, is also part of the judicial review challenge.

Trump signs new travel ban directive - BBC News
Donald Trump has, at last, unveiled his new immigration order, and it looks like government lawyers - and not just White House political operatives like Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller - have had their input.
Gone are the most controversial measures of the old order, such as preference for Christian refugees and the suspension of existing visas and green cards.
The details of the action's implementation are outlined with greater clarity this time, with more than a week before the new rules kick in.

Paul Krugman Issues A Warning About What We All Know Is Coming.
Donald Trump, after "so-called" judges blocked his MuslimBan // Donald Trump: Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad! // >> Paul Krugman:Never mind the utter falsity of the claim that bad people are “pouring in,” or for that matter of the whole premise behind the ban. What we see here is the most powerful man in the world blatantly telegraphing his intention to use national misfortune to grab even more power. And the question becomes, who will stop him?

Republicans call Trump's travel ban 'a self-inflicted wound' | US news | The Guardian
Two of the Republican party’s leading figures on national security, senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, issued a joint statement criticising the ban. “Ultimately, we fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism,” the senators said. “Our most important allies in the fight against [the Islamic State] are the vast majority of Muslims who reject its apocalyptic ideology of hatred. This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country. That is why we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security.”

WH advisors Bannon and Miller overruled the Dept of Homeland Security's judgment the travel ban should not apply to Green Card holders // - Trump's unilateral moves, which have drawn the ire of human rights groups and prompted protests at US airports, reflect the President's desire to quickly make good on his campaign promises. But they also encapsulate the pitfalls of an administration largely operated by officials with scant federal experience.
