The 4th Circuit Court Of Appeals Upholds Freeze On Trump’s Travel Ban…

High Fives to the 4th Circuit, and a big thumbs down to Trump and Sessions. May the SCOTUS uphold the 4th Circuit Appellate Courts decision.

The Washington Post – A federal appeals court on Thursday left in place the freeze on President Trump’s revised entry ban, handing the administration another legal setback in its efforts to block the issuance of new visas to citizens of six Muslim-majority countries.

The broad, decisive ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit means the Trump administration still cannot enforce its travel order that the government says is urgently needed for national security.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions vowed to appeal to the Supreme Court.
