Appeals Court Refuses to Reinstate Travel Ban, Dealing Trump Major Legal Blow

The New York Times reports that a three-judge federal appeals panel on Thursday unanimously refused to reinstate President Trump’s targeted travel ban, delivering the latest and most stinging judicial rebuke to his effort to make good on a campaign promise and tighten the standards for entry into the United States.

I haven't been this happy in months -- this has temporarily restored my faith in humanity, and reminded me that "we're" not the crazy ones here.

Conservatives are all about freedom of religion -- as long as it's theirs.

Via WSJ: The ruling came as a result of a lawsuit brought by Washington state, which argued the travel ban is discriminatory. Noah Purcell, a lawyer for the state, told the appeals court panel on Tuesday that Mr. Trump and his advisers have made statements that “are rather shocking evidence of intent to harm Muslims.’’

nothing supports the claim of a political decision.
