The Ninth Circuit Court has ruled against reinstating Trump’s executive order that left many stranded or detained at airports. The court’s ruling this evening mean citizens will be able to travel to the US despite Trumps order.
Trump’s travel ban issued on January 27, that left traveler’s stranded, even those with Green Cards, at airports both here and abroad, and brought about protests across the country will remain on hold.
Last Friday, Federal Judge James Robart blocked the travel ban, which cleared the way for people from the seven countries named in Trump’s order: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Yemen and Somalia to travel to and from the US.
The case then went to the appeals court where the government brought its case in favor of reinstating the ban, however the three-judge panel ruled against the government, and left the injunction on the ban in place.
The Trump Administration argued the ban was necessary for national security reasons, but the court did not agree. The White House may choose to take the issue before the Supreme Court, but with the court short one justice and evenly split between Democratic and Republican appointed justices, chances of winning the case are unclear.
