As President Trump continues efforts to keep Americans safe, a Federal Appeals Court rules against the latest travel order, saying it would exceed his authority.
A panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the third version of the President’s travel order Friday, claiming it violates federal law.
However, the decision will have no immediate impact, as the appeals court is allowing the Supreme Court to continue its review of the travel order.
The most recent travel halt prohibits people from six terror prone countries, along with people from North Korea and Venezuela, from entering the U.S.
This comes after the Trump Administration has pushed for a travel ban since January, which is necessary to safeguard national security.
