Per Think Progress:
The United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has ruled that Trump’s travel ban, the third he has proposed since becoming president, is illegal.
The third travel ban, issued in September, imposed “indefinite and significant restrictions and limitations on entry of nationals” from seven countries — Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen.
The decision was based solely on statutory claims, and did not rule on the constitutional claims. However, the injunction they issued is not a complete injunction; they’ve returned to the status quo ante of ban 2.0, allowing anyone with a “credible bona fide relationship with the United States.”
Here is the PDF version of the ruling.
