US Appeals Court Denies Request To Reinstate President Donald Trump's Travel Restrictions

As previously reported on The Root, U.S. District Judge James Robart temporarily blocked enforcement of Trump's controversial entry ban in a ruling issued last week, following lawsuits by the states of Washington and Minnesota.

A federal appeals court declined to reinstate President Donald Trump's ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries on Thursday, potentially setting the stage for a showdown in the Supreme Court.

The ruling means migrants, visitors and refugees from the affected countries can continue to travel to the U.S. if they have valid visas or green cards - something which Mr Trump had attempted to stop with his executive order. To discuss the legal ramifications of the immigration ban, University of Texas Law School Professor Steve Vladeck joins Hari Sreenivasan.

With the ninth court of appeals refusing to reinstate the ban, the case is now very likely to head to the US Supreme Court.

Texas senator responds to Trump's vague 'destroy' comment
People who agree with the practice maintain that it allows law enforcement to effectively combat terrorism and the drug trade. Congress would "get beat up really badly by the voters" if they interfered with law enforcement's activities.

Trump's January 27 executive order suspended for 90 days entry to the United States by people from Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

Trump began his remarks by reading a federal law that gives the president power to restrict immigration that is detrimental to the country.

This ruling does not mark the end of the legal battle, however, as there are now around 20 lawsuits in action against the executive order that have to be processed through court. The order also imposed a 120-day pause on all refugees, and an indefinite pause on refugees from Syria. As a result, foreign travelers from the seven banned Muslim-majority countries have been allowed to enter the United States - for now.

In its ruling, the court said the USA government had not offered any evidence of national security concerns that justified banning seven countries.

Trump told a conference of police chiefs that he "heard things he couldn't believe" as he listened to Tuesday's hearing.

As for Trump's feelings on the defeat, he took to Twitter to say in all-caps that the battle isn't over yet.
