A San Francisco-based appeals court on Thursday rejected the Trump administration’s request to resume his executive action on immigration and refugees, setting up a potential showdown in the Supreme Court.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled unanimously that a nationwide restraining order against President Trump’s temporary travel ban may continue while a federal judge considers a lawsuit over the policy.
The three-judge panel hearing the case included Judges William C. Canby Jr., a Jimmy Carter appointee; Richard R. Clifton, a George W. Bush appointee; and Michelle T. Friedland, a Barack Obama appointee.
The administration can now ask the Supreme Court to immediately intervene, which legal experts think is likely, or wait until a ruling on the preliminary injunction order. The high court is currently shorthanded with eight justices. If there is a split decision, the lower court’s ruling would be upheld.
“We're going to take it through the system,” Trump told reporters during a meeting with sheriffs at the White House, before the ruling came down. “It's very important for the country.”
THEY ARE NOTHING BUT COMMUNISTS. ANYONE WHO DOESN'T CARE ANYMORE ABOUT AMERICA THAN THESE JURISTS ARE DEFINITELY COMMUNISTIC, SOCIALISTIC, ANYTHING BUT PRO-AMERICAN. THEY SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE BENCH, WHY HAVE A PRESIDENT IF YOU HAVE THESE UNDERLINGS WHO WANT TO DOMINATE EVERYTHING IN A RADICAL, LIBERAL ATMOSPHERE. THIS IS ONE OF THE SYMPTOMS OF THIS COUNTRY BEING IN THE DISARRAY THAT IT IS; THIS ORDER BY PRESIDENT TRUMP IS ALREADY LAW. IT'S OK FOR OBAMA BUT ANYTHING FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP IS A STALEMATE. IT'S EVIDENT THEY ARE TRYING TO STALL HIM OUT ON EVERY POSITIVE MOVE HE MAKES. TO HELL WITH THESE KIND OF PEOPLE.
@William, I totally agree and he needs to MOVE forward.
Is anyone really surprised that this is how the 9th circuit court would rule against President Trump? The legality and authority of the President to issue a temporary travel ban was never in question. However, this Left wing activist court will always rule in favor of a left wing cause. They ruled based on emotion, not if the President was within his authority to keep America safe. This lunatic court has a 85% ruling turnover rate. At an 85% turnover rate, why does America even need this very ideological judicial joke to render important National Security issues?
Previously stacking the deck, appears to be the method the devious Left will now use to slow down the Trump administration. They will sue, then Judge shop until they are sufficiently assured to reap their desired outcome. When Obama was busy stacking the courts with his radicals, the GOP said zero. Now we're all feeling the results of the America hating Left - entrenching their handpicked Judges into the courts.
When they (the Left) doesn't win at the ballot box, they forward their destructive agenda through the courts. It's like they are NEVER out of power. They have planned it that way. The next time you hear a Republican tell you that he/she are willing to reach across the aisle, remember who that GOP Rep. is talking about. He/She is telling you that they will capitulate with America's enemy within. The Left.
I told my friend the other day that this was going to happen, because of our corrupt judicial system in this country. If anything happens from this day on the lives and injuries of our nations people will be on these radical Judges. NO one can blame Trump for anything, for he has tried to do his job and in this case he is even backed up by our Constitution. God Bless the MAN for trying to protect WE THE PEOPLE.
I believe in the man who said today, "See you in court!"
He does not need to take it to court. He needs to IGNORE it.
HE IS THE PRESIDENT. He doesnt need permission from the COURTs to
Keep America Safe!!!!
It's WE THE PEOPLE!!

Kick All Obama-Nations Appointees out of Office NOW!! They're all Anti-USA Capitalism / Anti-Israel-Yisrael!!
He Does Not Need to take it thru the system~
Obama did not heed to Texas Judge Andrew Hanen, when a judgement came
down, and was told to STOP bringing refugees in. HE IGNORED IT.
So let's stop playing tit4tat. Ignore the order. This is absolute B/S.
Lets see if I get this right, Obama, can use his Presidential Powers to allow illegals into the USA without a background check, and there was no court filings against what Obama did ? Right ?
President Trump wants to build a program to find out who is who, and what they may be connected to and the courts are used against Trump ? Right ?
Who is pulling the strings ?
The DNC, No !
The RNC, No ?
CFR, yes hell yes...!
