The stunning 3-0 ruling by the 9th Circuit court of Appeals in San Francisco means the travel ban — which caused chaos and massive protests at airports across the US— won’t take effect.The Court seems to think that the executive branch doesn't matter. One could say that the Trump administration feels the same way about this particular Court.
The president responded with a tweet, promising to challenge the ruling.
“SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!” Trump said.
The case will likely go all the way to the Supreme Court.
The Democratic Party immediately seized the ruling for political gain.
“Let’s be clear: This is a massive blow to the White House,” said interim chair Donna Brazile.
“President Trump still lacks the judgment to see the pointless chaos and harm he has caused – our courts, thankfully, do not. We are confident this ruling will stand,” she added.
There was no immediate comment from the White House.
