Appeals Court rejects travel ban plea of Trump government

A US federal appeals court refused to reinstate President Donald Trump ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations. Unanimously rejecting the administration assertion of presidential authority, the court questioned the motives of the ban concluding that the order was unlikely to survive legal challenges. According to foreign news agency the three judges of the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the argument that the ban targets Muslims raised “serious allegations” and presented “significant constitutional questions,” and they agreed that courts could consider statements by Trump and his advisers about wishing to enact such a ban. Moments after the ruling, US President Donald said in his message on Twitter, “SEE YOU IN COURT. THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!” Responding to Trump twett the Governor of US State of Washington Jay Inslee, a Democrat who leads one of the states that challenged the ban, said: “Mr. President, we just saw you in court, and we beat you.”
