President Trump took aim and fired again at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals early Tuesday after it ruled against his so-called travel ban.
“Well, as predicted, the 9th Circuit did it again,” the president tweeted. “Ruled against the TRAVEL BAN at such a dangerous time in the history of our country. S.C.,” he added. The S.C. is a foreshadowing of this coming before the Supreme Court.
The 9th Circuit Court, based in California, affirmed in large part on Monday the Hawaii District Court ruling that blocked parts of Trump’s executive order. The executive order temporarily banned nationals from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, suspended the entry of all refugees and reduced the cap on the admission of refugees from 110,000 to 50,000 for the 2017 fiscal year.
The ruling was unanimous by the three-judge panel. They said that Trump’s revised order does not offer a sufficient justification to suspend the entry of more that 180 million people on the basis of nationality. This decision came after President Trump brought the debate front and center again following the terrorist attack in London. In rapid fire tweets in the wake of the terror, Trump referred to his order as a “travel ban” and charged that it was necessary to keep the U.S. safe. The judges in California used the president’s tweets in their ruling.
President Trump has already asked the Supreme Court to step in, and the Department of Justice has filed two emergency applications asking justices to block the 9th Circuit Court rulings that have halted the ban.
