The justices granted parts of his administration's emergency request to put the order into effect immediately while the legal battle continues. The court said that the travel ban will go into effect "with respect to foreign nationals who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States." But the court said the injunctions were too broad to also include barring enforcement of the ban against foreigners who have no connection to the United States at all. Trump signed the order as a replacement for a Jan 27 order issued a week after he became president that also was blocked by federal courts. But the order still embodied his "America First" nationalist message and reflected his views of the dangers posed to the United States by certain immigrants and visitors.

TORONTO — Air Miles is raising some of the recent daily limits imposed on redeeming miles for in-store purchases from retailers. The customer loyalty program says the new daily limit on Air Miles Cash redemptions, in most cases, has been raised to $100. Air Miles has set a different limit for in-store redemptions at Shell — capped at $60 per transaction. In-store redemptions of Air Miles Cash points were briefly stopped in March due to the discovery that some stolen cash miles had been used to make purchases. In April, some Air Miles collectors expressed frustration with the $50 limit because it was down from $750 prior to the suspension.

“You all know that Eid is a time of celebrations for all Muslims,” she said at an Eid event on Monday. She bemoaned the state of the road network, saying accidents and deaths had increased due to the Awami League government’s neglect. Khaleda said the new budget is the worst ever and it has created infighting within the Awami League. This is why the people want freedom from the grasp of the Awami League. “We have seen what the Awami League gangsters and thugs do.

JERUSALEM — A high-profile group of Jewish leaders cancelled a gala event with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday to protest his government’s decision to scrap plans for a mixed-gender prayer area at Jerusalem’s Western Wall. The stunning move reflects an unprecedented gulf that has erupted between Israel and the Jewish diaspora over how Judaism can be practiced in Israel. Most American Jews belong to its more liberal Reform and Conservative streams and feel alienated by Israel’s ultra-Orthodox authorities that question their faith and practices. Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky was just one of senior officials who condemned the move, saying it undermines Jewish unity and calling on the government to reverse course. Ultra-Orthodox rabbis strictly govern Jewish practices in Israel such as weddings, divorces and burials.

The 190th jamaat at the historic site was held at 10am on Sunday by Moulana Farid Uddin Masud. After the traditional Eid prayers, the congregation prayed for peace and prosperity in Bangladesh and for the eradication of militancy. Though imams traditionally led the Eid prayers from the open western-facing second storey of the Eidgah Jamme Mosque, security concerns led Moulana Masud to conduct the prayers from the first storey this year. On Eid ul-Fitr last year, armed militants conducted an attack on police personnel near the Sholakia prayer grounds. Sholakia’s name is drawn from an 1828 research study that claimed 115,000 devotees (or 'shoa ek lakh') had attended Eid prayers in the area that year.
