Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decides to continue injunction of travel ban


On Thursday, February 9th, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously to keep in place the lower court’s injunction on President Trump’s executive order that would temporarily ban immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries and suspend the refugee program.

Therefore, until further action by a court, the order barring implementation of the travel and refugee ban remains in place, and all individuals may apply for visas and admission to the United States without regard to nationality.

The executive order will remain suspended until either the lower court holds another hearing or the U.S. Supreme Court decides to intervene. The federal government could seek Supreme Court intervention however 5 of the current 8 justices would need to vote to overturn the decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
