Week 3: Can President Trump's Travel Ban Be Overturned?

Email a Friend

The fate of President Trump's travel ban is now in the hands of a federal appeals court. Oral arguments were heard Tuesday night on whether the immigration order is unconstitutional.

The challenge was brought last week by Bob Ferguson, Attorney General for Washington state -- the first lawsuit after the President's executive order left about 60,000 refugees around the world in the lurch.

On this episode of Indivisible, we talk to Ferguson about whether his lawsuit represents a battle over American values.

WNYC's Brian Lehrer also talks to Jennifer Kroman, a lawyer representing a Sudanese doctor with a valid H-1B foreign-worker visa who was deported as a result of the executive order.

We are also joined by NPR Middle East correspondent Deborah Amos.
