Federal Court Will Not Reinstate Trump's Immigration Order

He explained that Trump would have a much better chance if the Supreme Court had nine justices, but without Judge Neil Gorsuch being confirmed, the administration's chances of success are "dicey". The state argues that the central provisions of Trump's executive order - barring citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the U.S. for 90 days and temporarily cutting off refugee admissions - are unconstitutional. It cited Trump's campaign promises to ban Muslims from the United States, the economic impact on Washington state brought by the executive order, and harm brought to the state's system of public universities as causing the need for Judge Robart's order.

The panel with the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit upheld the ruling of US District Judge James Robert in Seattle.

"It's so sad", said Trump, who noted he had listened to the hour-long appeals court hearing on Tuesday. Attorneys for both states, the appeals court ruled, had provided "evidence of numerous statements" by Trump supporting the argument that he meant to implement a "Muslim ban".

A joke doing the rounds after the United States President Donald J Trump took office was - "People generally turn against the leaders for not doing as they promised while asking for votes". While it seems the president plans to move the US Supreme Court, here are the reactions his tweet garnered.

The representative of Washington and Minnesota states was also grilled by judges over the two states' defiance of Trump's travel ban.

Trump immediately responded with an all-caps tweet: "SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!".

The US Justice Department was more measured in its response than Mr Trump - and a spokeswoman said it was "considering its options". There have no fatal attacks on US soil by people from the seven countries since 9/11.

"Courts owe considerable deference to the president's policy determinations" in areas of immigration and national security, but they still have authority to decide whether those orders violate constitutional rights, the judges said. The Justice Department is nearly certain to appeal, and the case is likely to make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court, though the appeals process could take over a year to get there.
