12/05/2017 - Travel Ban and Entrepreneur Parole Back in Play
Yesterday, on December 4, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court lifted the restrictions that lower courts had imposed on implementing President Trump’s latest travel ban. Arguments to whether the travel ban will stay will be conducted in the lower courts. (See details under Clark Lau entry of 9/27/2017.)
Additionally, the Obama Administration had fashioned a rule that would offer entrepreneurs an opportunity to conduct business in the U.S. if a certain threshold of capital and operations were reached (“Entrepreneur Parole”). The rule was to take effect in July 2017, but the Trump Administration halted it with its “Delay Rule.” A district court in D.C. ruled on Friday, December 1, 2017, that this Delay Rule did not follow proper procedures and therefore the Entrepreneur Parole rule should be in place. Details for implementation are expected. (See details under Clark Lau entry of 8/27/2016.)
