Appeals Court Rules Against Travel Ban


On February 9, 2017, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled against President Trump’s Executive Order (EO) on immigration and refugees, stating that it would not block a ruling by a Seattle court a week ago that halted the EO.

The San Francisco-based court's three judges unanimously agreed that the government had not been able to show that any terror threat vindicated reviving the ban. It means visa holders and refugees from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen can continue to enter the United States.

According to the court, the government was unable to articulate and show any evidence as to why the travel ban addressed an urgent national security threat. (New York Times)
