Appeals Court Rejects Bid To Reinstate Trump's Travel Ban

The panel declined to block a lower-court ruling that suspended the ban and allowed previously barred travelers to enter the US.

The San Francisco-based 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals is debating whether to reinstate Trump's travel ban while lawsuits challenging the order's constitutionality proceed.

A Ninth Circuit federal appeals panel voted unanimously today to deny a bid to reinstate Donald Trump's immigration ban, as The New York Times reports.

The sides are putting the case for and against last month's surprise executive order banning entry to the United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries, which caused chaos at airports and met with global disdain. To discuss the legal ramifications of the immigration ban, University of Texas Law School Professor Steve Vladeck joins Hari Sreenivasan.

Greater Atlanta Christian's communications director, Margie Isef, said the school is already looking to next year and #RiseUp2018. Per multiple reports, quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur will also leave the team to become offensive coordinator with the Rams.

Ultimately the matter is likely to go to the US Supreme Court.

The order, signed by the president January 27, temporarily suspends US entry for refugees worldwide and bars U.S.travel for immigrants of seven predominantly Muslim countries - Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen - for 90 days.

"That's what the president did here", Flentje said at the start of an hour-long oral argument conducted by telephone and broadcast live online.

The court said at the end of the hearing that it would give a ruling as soon as possible within the week.

Opponents also assailed the ban as discriminatory against Muslims. Robart issued the temporary restraining order (or TRO) until he could weigh further arguments, but he made it clear that he had serious doubts about the constitutionality of the executive order. The order also imposed a 120-day pause on all refugees, and an indefinite pause on refugees from Syria.

Trump and his administration have said repeatedly that the temporary ban is a security action meant to give the government time to assess a permanent travel and visa policy for migrants. Washington and Minnesota must submit a legal brief on Thursday, the Trump administration's response brief is due next Wednesday, and then the states must reply by next Friday.

The case will be heard by Judge William C. Canby Jr. He told the judges when the ban was in place it caused "irreparable harm" to Washington state.

Trump criticized the hearing during a meeting of sheriffs and police chiefs. Trump cited "terrorism concerns" as the reason behind the order.
