Appeals Court: President Trump’s Travel Ban 3.0 Violates Federal Law

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled Friday evening that the third version of President Donald Trump’s proposed ban on immigrants from primarily Muslim nations was a violation of federal law and exceeded his authority. In a three-to-zero ruling, the presiding judges declared that Trump’s efforts to bar nationals of six majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. “once again exceeds the scope of his delegated authority” under federal law. The court stayed its ruling pending review of its decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.
