By Molly McLeodBy Molly McLearyTrump’s travel order to be removed from court is a “good faith agreement” with the U.S. Supreme Court, and the president will not have to pay legal fees for the lawsuit, said the lawyers for the plaintiffs in the lawsuit.
The lawsuit filed by the groups Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and American Civil Liberties Union argues that the president has the legal authority to deny entry to citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries.
The lawsuit is one of a series of legal challenges to the president’s travel bans, which are aimed at halting travel to the U, Canada, the U-Korea and Iran.
Trump’s order bars entry to the United States to people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
It also bars entry for citizens of Iraq, Syria, Somalia and Yemen who are refugees.
The states that were excluded by the president include Iran, Somalia , Sudan, Iraq and Yemen, according to the suit.
The White House had no immediate comment.
The suit argues that if the president were to issue an executive order that would have required citizens of Iran, Libya and Somalia to have a visa to enter the U., the courts would have to decide whether to allow that order.
Trump signed an executive action in January that directed the Justice Department to start enforcing the ban.
