Breaking News | The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals refuses to reinstate Trump travel ban

muslim-ban-9th-circuit-court-of-appealsThe Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously against President Donald Trump’s immigration ban in a ruling issued Thursday evening. Trump is widely expected to challenge the court’s ruling in the Supreme Court. The executive order, Trump’s highest profile and most controversial of his presidency so far, will be void until then.

The decision took square aim at the Trump administration’s argument that the ban must remain in place for national security reasons. “We hold that the Government has not shown … that failure to enter a stay would cause irreparable injury, and we therefore deny its emergency motion for a stay,” the court ruled.

The stay on the ban will remain in place, although that does not set a national precedent as a Supreme Court ruling would. The ruling is not based on the merits of the executive order, but it keeps the temporary restraining order on Trump’s executive order in place. Still, Supreme Court lawyer and Georgetown University law professor Neal Katyal called the ban “an utter repudiation of the Trump order.”

Trump, for his part, responded on Twitter.


On Feb. 3, a George W. Bush-appointed federal judge in Seattle, Washington blocked the enforcement of U.S. President Donald Trump’s ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries — Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
