The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has unanimously ruled against Trump’s Immigration Order, stating:
“Rather than present evidence to explain the need for the Executive Order, the Government has taken the position that we must not review its decision at all. We disagree,” the panel wrote. “In short, although courts owe considerable deference to the President’s policy determinations with respect to immigration and national security, it is beyond question that the federal judiciary retains the authority to adjudicate constitutional challenges to executive action.”
Apparently, the 9th Circuit judges have determined it unnecessary to follow the Constitution and the rules set in place which gives the President of the United States power to restrict immigration as he deems necessary in order to protect the United States.
“…Title 8 of the United States Code, Section 1182 paragraph (f), which give Trump complete authority to issue his executive Order. That law reads as follows:
(f) SUSPENSION OF ENTRY OR IMPOSITION OF RESTRICTIONS BY PRESIDENT
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.”
President Trump responded to the ruling via Twitter:
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!

It would seem that this battle is far from over.
