Appeals Court Rejects Trump's Travel Ban Against 7 Muslim Countries


United States President Donald Trump on Thursday suffered a legal blow when a federal appeals court refused to reinstate a temporary travel ban he had ordered on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.


A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that the Trump administration failed to offer any evidence that national security concerns justified immediately restoring the ban, which was launched late last month.


Shortly after the court issued its 29-page ruling, Trump tweeted: “SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”

He told reporters his administration ultimately would win the case and dismissed the ruling as “political.”
