9th Circuit Court rules against Trump's travel ban

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday ruled against President Trump's revised travel ban, maintaining the nationwide block on the order. The court ruled unanimously that Trump's order "exceeded the scope of authority delegated to him by Congress."

The ruling specifically cited this June 5 tweet by Trump as evidence of "his assessment that it is the 'countries' that are inherently dangerous, rather than the 180 million individual nationals of those countries who are barred under President Trump's 'travel ban'":

Trump's second iteration of the ban sought to temporarily block immigrants from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. Earlier this month, Trump pressed the Supreme Court to reinstate the ban after the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals similarly ruled against Trump's order last month.
