Trump's anti-refugee order shot down again

The 9th Circuit, in a unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel, yesterday upheld most of the decision made earlier by a Hawaii Federal District Court.  Significantly for Oregon's refugees, the Hawaii court had temporarily prevented (and the 9th Circuit affirmed that action) not only the limits on travel from the six countries, but also the 120-day suspension of the nation’s refugee program and the 50,000-person cap on refugee admissions in 2017, down from 110,000. 

As a result, we can expect more refugees to arrive in Oregon in 2017 and that's good news for Oregon.
