Appeals court blocks Trump travel ban

A federal appeals court Thursday refused to let President Trump reinstitute a temporary ban on travelers from seven majority-Muslim nations, ruling that the president’s order violates the due process rights of people affected by the ban.

The quick decision from a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit could lead to a showdown at the Supreme Court, unless the administration agrees to dial back the travel ban or try its case before a federal judge in Seattle who ordered it stopped last week.

“Although courts owe considerable deference to the President’s policy determinations with respect to immigration and national security, it is beyond question that the federal judiciary retains the authority to adjudicate constitutional challenges to executive action,” the judge wrote in their opinion.

The ban, announced Jan. 27, temporarily barred citizens of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen for 90 days, all refugees for 120 days, and Syrian citizens indefinitely. It led to chaos at U.S. and international airports as tens of thousands of visa holders were blocked from entering the country or detained after arriving in the U.S.

Two quick and important pieces of advice from a lawyer friend for Muslim Green card holders traveling to U.S.:
- If you are able, change your flight to fly to land at Boston Logan International Airport. The Massachusetts order from the judge is stronger and requires entry.
- You may be pressured to sign a form I-407. Signing this form means you are voluntarily abandoning your lawful permanent resident status. *Do not sign this form.*

Miraculous Reveal Fic

  • Mari = Ladybug, Adrien = Chat, Chloe = Bee, Alya = Fox, Nino = Turtle, Nath = Peacock,  Juleka = Butterfly 
  • Their team is created slowly by Master Fu and they have a final battle against Hawkmoth (after which Juleka joins their team) 
  • They manage to keep their identity a secret, for the whole time - even from each other.
  • In their last year of school, Marinette confesses she’s in love with Adrien, who rejects her because he’s in love with Ladybug. 
  • Before Chat Noir can confess to Ladybug, (Because there is never a right time) they graduate. Marinette decides to have a gap year before going to Uni. Knowing that Paris would be safe with her companions - she goes travelling. 
  • The other miraculous holders stay close to Paris, they go to uni and apprenticeships and jobs and things, but they want to be around to protect their home in the long term. 
  • Ladybug On Tour™
  • Marinette can’t help but transform into Ladybug in different places she’s visited. Seeing as she keeps sending postcards to Alya and her other friends, it doesn’t take long for them to figure out that she’s Ladybug and slowly their other identities are revealed to each other. 
  • Marinette comes home a year later, pretending (but not really) to be over Adrien. Adrien is pretending to be over Marinette/Ladybug, but that disappears within 5 minutes. 
  • Adrien and Co know that she’s Ladybug, and she doesn’t know that they know. They want to tell her that they know and keep devising plans for her to find out, but also a lot of resentment and getting to know Marinette/Ladybug again after her year away.
  • Marinette trying to fit back into a friendship group in her real life with her ex-crush, ex-enemy and distant friends. 
  • Adrien and Co’s plans for Marinette to find out become so blatantly obvious that the entirety of paris almost find out. 
  • Marinette, however, stays oblivious the entire time until Adrien is literally demasking in front of her.  

I’d watch a spin-off where Master Fu was the protagonist just sayin. From his time as a holder to giving other people the miraculouses.
