SAN FRANCISCO, CA — At around 3:15 PM PST, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued their ruling on Donald Trump’s controversial “Muslim Ban,” a set of travel restrictions temporarily precluding all travel to the United States from group’ the Administration says sponsors terror. The appeals court upheld a lower federal district judge’s order placing a stay on the travel ban, a victory for civil rights and immigration law groups who have been vigorously fighting Trump’s Executive Order since it was signed just over a week ago.
In recent days, the Administration has tried to walk-back the term “Muslim Ban” in lieu of nationwide protests and demonstrated outrage by a growing number of frustrated Americans concerned with Donald Trump’s drastic executive orders taken in only the first two weeks of his office. But many find any other name for the action merely pretext for it’s true intent: to prevent entry to the United States based on an entrant’s religious affiliation.
Donald Trump has projected his intention to take this matter to the United States Supreme Court.
