Today, at approximately 6:35PM Eastern Time, it was announced that the U. S. 9th Circuit Court Of Appeals in San Francisco, California ruled on the Trump Administration’s Executive Order on Travel from 7 majority Muslim countries in the Middle Eastern region of the world and allowed the temporary restraining order by the lower courts to stay in effect.  This is the second ruling by Federal Courts on the so- called Travel Ban.  The ruling allows the injunction to stay in effect in the State Of Washington Et Al Vs. Donald Trump case.  This prevents the travel ban from being implemented as written.

The ruling was issued by a three judge panel of the court that includes Carter appointee William Canby Jr., G. W. Bush appointee Richard Clifton and Obama appointee, Michelle Friedland  This is a significant legal defeat for the Trump administration.  Critics of the Trump Administration interpret this as a clear indication of the incompetence and unconsitutionality with which the order was drafted and then implemented with it’s subsequent chaos and disruption of Federal Agencies, international travel and the lives of the individual persons and families affected.  At least one person has died due to the the situations that the travel ban created as reported by Democracy now last week.  The countries affected by the travel ban are: Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Yemen and Somalia.  Some of these countries are taking measures to retaliate.

Donald Trump has vowed that his Administration will fight this ruling and downplayed the ruling in brief comments to reporters in a hallway at the White House after the ruling was announced.  Will this include Donald Trump continuing to insult the Federal Judiciary via Twitter? Only time will tell.
