Trump Can't Allow States to Block Refugees: Court

HIAS, Inc. v. Trump

"Plaintiffs have demonstrated to the Court's satisfaction, based
on statutory text and structure, purpose, legislative history, judicial holdings,
executive practice, the existence of a serious constitutional concern over federal preemption,
and numerous arbitrary and capricious administrative deficiencies, that, on
the merits, they are clearly likely to succeed in showing, that, by giving States and
Local Governments veto power over the resettlement of refugees within their
borders, the Order is unlawful."
