Appeals Court Upholds Block On Trump’s Travel Ban

The Hill reports:

A Richmond, Va.-based federal appeals court on Thursday refused to reinstate President Trump’s ban on nationals from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S., delivering a major blow to the Trump administration.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals said in its ruling that Trump’s executive order “speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination.”
