A federal appeals court has refused to reinstate President Donald Trump’s ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations, thus creating another legal setback to the President’s immigration policy.
In a unanimous decision, the panel of three judges from the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals declined to block a lower-court ruling that suspended the ban and allowed previously barred travelers to enter the U.S.
An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court seems likely and would put the decision in the hands of a divided court that has a vacancy.
Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch, could not be confirmed in time to take part in any consideration of the ban.
Moments after the ruling was released, Trump tweeted, “SEE YOU IN COURT,” adding that “THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”
