Appeals Court: Restraining Order on Trump Travel Orders Remains in Place

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is upholding a temporary restraining order halting President Trump's temporary travel ban.  A federal judge in Washington state last week issued a temporary restraining order against Trump's 90-day ban on people entering the U.S. from seven mostly Muslim countries.

"SEE YOU IN COURT," President Donald Trump on Twitter in reaction to the Thursday appeals court ruling that keeps a restraining order in place on his travel restrictions.

President Trump reacted quickly via a tweet, in all caps, "SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!"

The three federal judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel say the U.S. government presented no evidence to explain the urgent need for President Donald Trump's executive order to take effect immediately.

In response to one specific argument made by the Department of Justice lawyer in favor of the executive order earlier this week the panel says courts do have the authority to review presidential orders on immigration and national security.
