U.S. Federal Appeals Court To Decide About Fate Of Trump Travel Ban

As early as today a federal appeals court is expected to reach a decision about the fate of President Trump’s temporary travel ban for refugees and citizens of 7 mostly Muslim countries in the Middle East and North Africa.

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals based on San Francisco is weighing the legal arguments in the case that could reinstate the Trump Executive Order travel ban on grounds that refugees and citizens of 7 countries pose a national security risk  as Trump administration officials claim or support the states’ legal challenge led by Attorney Generals in Washington state and Minnesota who filed a restraining order on February 3rd to halt implementation of the Executive Order travel ban.

Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson argued in federal court on February 3rd that the Executive Order “violates the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of Equal Protection and the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, infringes individuals’ constitutional right to Due Process, and contravenes the federal Immigration and Nationality Act.”

The final ruling about the legal matter may be reached at the U.S. Supreme Court.

President Donald Trump weighed in today about the controversial legal case on Twitter where he claimed, “If the U.S. does not win this case as it so obviously should, we can never have the security and safety to which we are entitled. Politics!”
