The appeals court will not be reinstating Trump’s travel ban. The verdict was unanimous and quoted a Supreme Court precedent about their duty “in time of war as well as in time of peace, to preserve unimpaired the constitutional safeguards of civil liberty.”
After the news was released, Donald tweeted:
“SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”
He quickly got a response from Washington Gov. Jay Inslee who responded:
“Mr. President, we just saw you in court and we beat you.”
The court panel went on to say that “it is beyond question that the federal judiciary retains the authority to adjudicate constitutional challenges to executive action.”
The ACLU has declared that they will continue to fight the notion as well. Omar Jadwat, the director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project spoke out about the fight.
“The government’s erratic and chaotic attempts to enforce this unconstitutional ban have taken a tremendous toll on innocent individuals, our country’s values, and our standing in the world.”
