U.S. Appeals Court Has Struck Down President Trump's Travel Order And Border Controls

Bloomberg: Trump Dealt Major Setback as Appeals Court Sides With Immigrants

* President says ‘SEE YOU IN COURT’ in Twitter comment on ruling
* Immigration ban case inches closer to U.S. Supreme Court

A federal appeals court ruled unanimously that the U.S. will remain open to refugees and visa holders from seven Muslim-majority countries, rejecting a bid by the Trump administration to reinstate a travel ban in the name of national security.

The San Francisco-based appeals court on Thursday spurned the government’s request to close the doors after days of public debate over President Donald Trump’s attacks on the judicial system and a rush of fearful immigrants. The ruling increases the likelihood that the administration will ask the Supreme Court to step into a case that’s the biggest test of Trump’s executive power yet.

WNU Editor: So much for the executive being responsible for foreign policy and controlling one's borders .... this court has just denied what the Office of the U.S. President has been responsible for generations. What's my prediction for the future .... when courts act like this ..... social transformation without representation .... there are always consequences .... and most of the time they never turn out good. I expect the U.S. government will now either go to the Supreme Court, or they will amend the executive order to satisfy the concerns of the court and moot this case either tonight or tomorrow (which I expect they will) .... but this battle is just starting.

Update: Talk about the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. The US State Department is rushing to let in refugees from the 7 countries that are covered by President Trump's executive order .... 77% of refugees allowed into U.S. since travel reprieve hail from seven suspect countries (Washington Times).

The 9th circuit is where the Left goes to get a 30 day stamp on whatever high-heat cause de jure they have boiling. Because it takes about that long for this court to be overturned by SCOTUS. About 90 percent of the time.

The Left wants to equate the Obama amnesty defeat last year with what Trump is doing now. Trump is doing the exact opposite from what Obama did. Trump's EO enforces written law. Obama's EO defied it. Obama ordered blanket amnesty for 5 million illegals. Going against established law.

US immigration law is written in the spirit of strict scrutiny on those applying for entry. Not based on a demand that they be let in.

This case will go to SCOTUS and it will rule in Trump's favor.

The 9th circuit is a joke. Overburdened, overruled and packed with left wing ideologues. It needs to be broken up.

It will actually not likely go directly to SCOTUS as there were serious problems with the original executive order that defied protections of due process to lawful permanent residents.

Have to love that comments are from legal scholars who are sure what the Supreme Court will rule in advance of getting the case. That said, I note that in many cases, perhaps the majority of them, those nations known to have funded terrorism are not listed
