U.S. Appeals Court rejects President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban

President Donald Trump is discovering quickly that the United States is not a dictatorship. The U.S. 9th Circuit of Appeals recently rejected Trump’s travel ban which was viewed as a Muslim ban on seven nations that are predominately Islamic.

Three judges ruled against the ban by stating, “We hold that the Government has not shown a likelihood of success on the merits of its appeal, nor has it shown that failure to enter a stay would cause irreparable injury.”

Trump initiated the ban on Jan. 27 by signing an executive order. However, the order was signed and issued without proper vetting. In turn, the ban created chaos at airports across the nation as immigrants, who previously were allowed to enter the country, were arrested at airports and forced to return to their homeland. The ban affected thousands of families who were torn apart by the ban, individuals who needed medical treatment in the U.S., and college students who were denied to continue their studies in America.

Another issue with the ban was that it also worked in Trump’s favor. Although Trump intiated a ban on seven Muslim countries, he failed to issue a ban on the Muslim countries where he has business interests.

Trump will likely take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court which has four Democrats and four Republicans. Moments after the U.S. 9th Circuit of Appeals decided on the case, like clockwork, Trump shared his thoughts on Twitter. “See you in court, the security of our nation is at stake,” Trump tweeted.
