and the New York case should be dismissed because the two people on whose behalf it was brought have been allowed into the United States.

Doesn't this fact render this particular case moot? Two people were asking that the executive order be set aside so they could enter the U.S.A.. Since it's obvious that they have entered the U.S., there is no longer a reason for them to request/expect a legal remedy from the courts. Someone who hasn't been allowed into the U.S.A. could file a similar suit, but hasn't the Trump administration told the court(s) they weren't proceeding with their challenge(s) to the courts ruling?

That battle seems to be over.

On the other hand, any municipality who now wishes to claim some legal injury from the old executive order should wait until the new EC is issued. If it's ever issued.

“xenophobia and religious discrimination” ......really. Religious discrimination....take a look at the 7 countries listed. At one point some said it targets "Muslims". Some countries have next to little or nearly no Christian citizens. Reason being is that for centuries Muslims in those areas behead...persecute...kill those whom are not of the Muslim faith. So the fact that these are Muslim countries is merely a byproduct of their hatred of anyone whom is not Muslim, ergo your reasoning is flawed.

and rightly so.

I did. Take a look at the numbers. How religious lunatics from these countries have killed US citizens?

You take a look at the list. More revealing is who isn't on it. One country in particular has a track record of spreading revolting religious bigotry and producing top drawer jihadis.

I'll give you a hint - the initials are SA.

"Municipalities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Minneapolis and Skokie, Illinois, urged a federal judge on Friday to continue blocking aspects of Republican President Donald Trump's travel ban." .............................................................................................................. "... and Skokie, Illinois"? At one time Skokie had the distinction of having the greatest number of Holocaust survivors in the USA.

If Trump were trying to ban Muslims, he's doing a crap job of it. More than 85% of the world's Muslims are completely unaffected by this temporary moratorium. These 7 countries were highlighted because they basically are non functioning as nation states.

I'd love to know how these cities figured out that temporarily restricting Somalis and Yemenis has impacted their economies. Anyone got the figures on outbound tourism from these countries?

If their motivation isn't based on fact, why bother asking for more facts? They've heard the arguments already. They know that no terrorists have come from those countries.

They support the policy because they are afraid and it makes them sleep better at night. The end.

The problem, superlib, isn't that terrorists are necessarily coming from those countries. The problem is that we simply don't know. The basic structures of society don't exist in those places- that is why Pres. Obama chose them and singled them out for more scrutiny. And also why Trump did the same.

There are over 25,000 cities in the U.S.A.. This list doesn't seem anywhere near that long. Are these only cities which are being run by the Democrat Party mayors or legislators?
