BREAKING: President Donald J. Trump was hit with another legal setback on Thursday when an appeals court rejected the Trump administration’s attempt to deny grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins of Americans an exemption from his travel ban executive order.
The rejection came in from the three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The 3 liberal judges unanimously declined to overturn a district court judge’s ruling that the administration was taking too narrow a view of an exception the Supreme Court carved out from the travel ban earlier in the summer.
According to POLITICO, the liberal appeals court panel also cleared the way for a greater flow of refugees, declining to disturb a lower court order that those already assigned to resettlement agencies can enter the U.S. despite Trump’s order.
The revised travel ban Trump issued in March suspends issuance of U.S. visas to residents of six majority-Muslim countries and halts admission of refugees from across the globe. The Supreme Court has set arguments on the ban’s legality for October 10.
The travel ban has faced legal hurdles since it was first initiated in January.
