Federal Appeals Court Says Muslim Ban Stays on Hold

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the federal government’s emergency request to lift the temporary restraining order halting the implementation of President Trump’s travel ban.  The Court rejected the government’s attempt to shield the Executive Order behind national security, explaining that doing so “runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our constitutional democracy.”

This decision affirms the importance of the separation of powers and the critical need for checks and balances to prevent executive excesses.
