A Somali refugee who lives in Seattle is one of the people challenging President Trump’s travel ban saying it’s illegally preventing him from reuniting with his family. Oral arguments will be heard Thursday, December 21, before U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle. Robart has ruled on a number of travel ban cases and was one of the first federal judge's to grant an injunction temporarily halting enactment of the  travel ban after President Trump signed an Executive Order putting it in place.
