U.S. appeals court rejects request to immediately restore travel ban

A federal appeals court early Sunday rejected a request by the Justice Department to immediately restore President Trump’s targeted travel ban, deepening a legal showdown over his authority to tighten the nation’s borders in the name of protecting Americans from terrorism.

In the legal back and forth over the travel ban, the United States District Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco said a reply from the Trump administration was now due on Monday.

The ruling meant that refugees and travellers from seven predominantly Muslim nations — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who were barred by the president would, for now, continue to be able to enter the country.

After a Federal District Court blocked Mr. Trump’s order, the Justice Department appealed the ruling late Saturday, saying that the president had the constitutional authority to order the ban and that the court ruling “second-guesses the president’s national security judgment.”

    Perfectly stated there Big Sky. I would have added in racism and bigotry. His choice for President proves two things. One – USA is still a very racist country, and Two – They are NOT desirous of having a female president. I do NOT wish for this but a natural disaster will awaken Trump and Americans. There are two such pending disasters. One is the Cumbre Vieja volcano in the Canary Islands just off the west coast of the Sahara Desert, and The Yellowstone Ring of fire in the mid to north west USA. Both are under very careful study by a number of geological monitoring and research universities around the world. Not if but when the Cumbrer Vieja volcano blows, ith western shank will collapse into the Atlantic, sending a wall of water some 500 Ft. high across the Atlantic at the speed of a jet aircraft. This will wipe out the entire East coast of North America frol Labrador Island to the South America north coast inclusive of the Caribbean and Central America. Over one Billion souls will perish, with structural destruction and flooding occurring some 250 miles inland. The super Volcano is expected to blow too. This ring of fire consists of seven large volcanos in the Yellowstone Caldera is growing and getting hotter by the day. The ground is swelling somewhat like Mount SAt. Helens, at the rate of 4 inches per year. insignificant it may sound but very dangerous. An area mostly in the continental USA with a radius of over 700 miles in all directions will suffer from the ash fallout, With burning rocks the size of small vehicles and lava flowing closer to the center. Agriculture and food production will be wiped out. Lotys of smart Americans are already moving to Europe and South America. This is no foolish joke. One can watch documentaries on both these expected world disasters on YouTube, The History channel and National Geographic. They don’t lie. they do research themselves. Go check for yourselves.

    When we honestly look at the word terrorist and what it means and then look at the history of the earth, then we will see who the real terrorist are on this earth. Who is really causing all these wars on the earth???????

    This US Court is trying to avert the inevitable which is an eventual military strike by ALL nations on the USA. This stand off by the Court will not last as evil will serve its deemed purpose, all being in good time. The only difference with Mr Trump is that he is vocal, fronting and lets it rip. While many others who are like him keep their racist views to themselves and act accordingly being subtle. I guess his attitude comes from his coward nights in the Forrest with his bed sheet on with the christian cross burning.

    There are now many volcanic eruptions happening including a recent one in Hawaii – KILAUEA which was seen literally pouring lava out of a hole like a pipe into the sea with massive cliff break off falling into the sea. Sadly the Caribbean will be affected by any disaster in the USA especially if the GRAND DADDY NEW MADRID fault goes off. America fault lines are connected to all the volcanoes which sit in the ring of fire surrounding the earth. The thing is when you have done injustice to a people and never acknowledged it and continue to beat them down by your systems, some one has to pay even if it is the great great great great grand children. Its nothing to be prideful about just simple honesty.

    big sky, may I use that statement before you copyright it. Trump still feels he is doing the Apprentice. He should be impeached but those republicans would not do it.

    Why do you think Trump will not disclose his health to the public because he has been diagnosed with a mental illness and he is trying to hide from the American public. But the Americans now deserve what they get he was spouting all this hatred during his campaign and yet they chose to swallow his lies and Pence has proved his hypocrisy by accepting everything Trump says even those he knows are unconstitutional. But a liar and thief goes together. Trump is worse than Hitler and his association with Putin will eventual result in a 3rd world war the final
