The judges say Donald Trump violated US immigration law by discriminating against people based on their nationality

The judges say Donald Trump violated US immigration law by discriminating against people based on their nationality

On June 6, Trump tweeted: "That's right, we need a travel ban for certain unsafe countries, not some politically correct term that won't help us protect our people!", reports CNN.

On May 25, the Fourth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled against the travel ban and affirmed the nationwide preliminary injunction on the EO.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, in upholding a block on the travel ban, argued that the White House did not provide a valid reason for barring travelers from certain countries and violated immigration law by discriminating against individuals based on nationality when it comes to issuing visas.

The 9th Circuit rebuffed the administration's efforts to reinstate that part of the order as well. It ruled on the basis immigration law, not the Constitution.

The 4th US Circuit also has called Trump's national security concerns an after-the-fact justification for a policy that was "steeped in animus and directed at a single religious group".

At the Supreme Court, anything is possible if you have five votes - a majority of the court.

Earlier this month, the administration approached the Supreme Court after a defeat in the 4 Circuit Court of Appeals.

Trump had issued his initial travel ban executive order a week into his presidency, unleashing chaos at airports, mass protests in the USA and worldwide, condemnation from a broad spectrum of global leaders - and unprecedented attacks by the president on the federal judiciary after judges ruled against the ban.

The 9th Circuit heard arguments May 15 in an expedited appeal of the Hawaii case.

The ruling, issued on Mondayfrom a three judge panel was unanimous and upheld most aspects of a ruling made in March by Federal District Court in Hawaii that stayed Trump's revised version of his travel ban.

In initiating the legal challenge against the second travel ban on March 9, Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin noted that the new order, compared with the initial ban, "nothing of substance has changed: there is the same blanket ban on entry from Muslim-majority countries". The federal court decided in line with the other courts that have blocked the president's executive order Protecting the national from foreign terrorist entry into the United States. The original order also barred Iraqi nationals from entering the United States.

"At this point, it's surprising if a court rules in favor of the travel ban", Levinson told AFP. The administration suspended the US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) for 120 days and executed an infinite ban on the refugees from Syria.
