U.S. appeals court rejects Trump's bid to bar most refugees

Written by  Reuters

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Thursday rejected the Trump administration’s effort to temporarily bar most refugees from entering the country, ruling that those who have relationships with a resettlement agency should be exempt from an executive order banning refugees.

A three-judge 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel also ruled that grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins of legal U.S. residents should be exempted from President Donald Trump’s order, which banned travelers from six Muslim-majority countries.

The ruling is the latest legal blow to the President’s sweeping executive order barring travelers from Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen for 90 days, which the Republican president said was necessary for national security.

The Justices said that the government did not persuasively explain why the travel ban should be enforced against close relatives of people from the six countries or refugees with guarantees from resettlement agencies. The 3-0 ruling takes effect in five days.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June that Trump’s ban could be implemented on a limited basis, but should not be applied to people with “bona fide” relationships to people or entities in the United States.

The government took a narrow view of that interpretation, which the state of Hawaii challenged in court.

Not a surprising decision, coming from the Ninth Circuit. It should be officially renamed "The Unamerican Circuit".

Who's in charge Bolshevik activist Judges or the President.? We would be speaking German today if these idiots blocked everything the President was doing back then. FDR imprisoned American Japanese citizens..That was deplorable.

Mr. Trump should have long ago told these Courts to stuff it. The Supreme Court ruled decades ago that the President has the authority to deny entry to this nation of any group or groups of people he so chooses for any reason whatsoever. That authority has been exercised by a number of Presidents since that ruling, and no one ever objected. Case closed.

Unfortunately Trump CANNOT tell the Corts "to stuffit"! This is what the writers of our constitution had in mind when they decide to separate powers within our government. If it happened before and no one ever complained about it, then it is a fault on the ones that not comp[lauined, not the courts! You have to understand how government works (something that Trump and apparently you do not know; no pun intended) to realize that we can please some of the people some of the times, but cannot please most of the people all of the time! Obama did not get everything he wanted to do and neither either one of the Bushes, nor Bill Clinton! So, what is the big deal now? Just because you helped elect someone ignorant of how government works, hence putting people in positions they know nothing about (just because they voted for him or supported him and his lies) does not mean that the rest of the population will seat idle and let him get away with the stupid decisions he is making! Once we get someone who knows how government works (be it a Republican or a Democrat) you will be able to tell the difference. Meanwhile, enjoy the contributions of our forefathers and their wisdom!

You are wrong. The Supreme Court decided this issue decades ago. What you now have are Leftist judges sitting on Courts of Appeals ignoring settled Supreme Court decisions and effectively rewriting decided law to suit their political biases. You are wrong.

Ruben must not have heard that the SCOTUS DID tell the 9th ro shove it!! They are again ignoring it and when the SCOTUS comes back into session next month theyare NOT going to be happy having their decisions mocked!! THEY can enforce a Federal appeals judge disbarrment so maybe YOU should do a little reading!!! Thank GOD for Gorsuch but even this they were almost UNANIMOUS that President Trump CAN BAN Foreign Refugees into our country!!!

There are those among us who are very selective in what they choose to accept and understand.

It is you that is wrong, a President is elected to protect the American people and from what I have observed he has tried more in 8 a months than that fake libturd odummy did in 8 terrible years,when an illegal or a refugee harms you or your family then you might see the light!

This how the scam works....the democrat's have loaded all the democrat federal judges, under the area of the 9th circuit court, So those judges will come up with any reason to not allow a conservative president to do his job! And then of course the 9th circuit will go along with any stupid ruling, for the mere reason of obstructing the executive branch...that is why they are the most over turned branch of the court's system...78% over turn rate!
That is why anyone voting democrat, is voting to over turn the constitution of this country...period!

We're off to see the SCOTUS,the wonderful SCOTUS of the USA
