Barrage Of Lawsuits Against Immigration Order

After President Donald Trump issues his executive order temporarily barring immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries, the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups filed lawsuits across the country to block the order. Many of them were successful and were able to prevent hundreds of individuals from being detained and deported. So, after all of this legal action and rulings by state and federal judges, where does the travel ban stand now? 

Morning Shift talks to Mark Joseph Stern, a writer for Slate covering law and LGBT issues, about what effect the barrage of lawsuits has had on the Trump administration’s policy.
