Appeals Court Denies Restoration of Donald Trump's Travel Ban
The United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has rejected a request by the Justice Department to restore Donald Trump‘s travel ban.
This means that people from the seven predominantly-Muslim countries of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen – and vetted refugees – can continue to enter the U.S., according to the New York Times.
Trump originally signed the controversial executive order on January 27 as nationwide protests broke out at airports.
A federal judge paused the ban this past weekend before the Justice Department appealed the following day.
“Courts are particularly ill-equipped to second-guess the President’s prospective judgment about future risks,” the department said.
The judge opens up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart. Bad people are very happy!
