On Thursday, 9 February 2017 a US appeals court unanimously upheld a temporary suspension of President Donald Trump’s order that restricted travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.
The 7 countries affected by President Trump’s executive orders and being denied visas to the US are:
Syria (There is also an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees)
‘A 3-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that the Trump administration failed to offer “any evidence” that national security concerns justified the ban he launched with an executive order on Jan. 27…’
Looks like President Trump wasn’t too pleased with the outcome of the court case, he tweeted:
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!
