Legal experts weigh in on 9th Circuit's decision on Trump's travel ban

Posted February 14, 2017

On Thursday, three judges of that appeals court did not decide in favor of Trump's attorneys.

Trump's executive order that denies entry to the US for nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries took a major hit Thursday, when a federal appeals panel rejected the Justice Department's request to have it unblocked, citing lack of evidence connecting the barred nationals to any tangible terror threats or attacks. It also froze general refugee admissions into the US for 120 days, indefinitely pausing Syrian refugees due to Syria's ongoing civil war.

Trump had signed an executive order in January banning the arrival of all refugees from Syria indefinitely and also citizens of Somalia, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Iraq and Yemen for a period of three months.

A unnamed judge from the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals, which on Thursday upheld the stay on the original order, has called on all 25 judges of that court to vote on whether to hear the appeal again.

Washington (CNN) The Trump administration will not immediately appeal the decision blocking its travel ban to the Supreme Court, a source familiar with the matter tells CNN.

Justice Department lawyers appealed to the 9th Circuit, arguing that the president has the constitutional power to restrict entry to the United States and that the courts can not second-guess his determination that such a step was needed to prevent terrorism.
