A Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has again ruled against President Trump’s executive order banning citizens from six Muslim Nations traveling to the United States. His tweets were used against him in the ruling. The verdict by the panel of three Judges is another blow on his travel ban. A similar court has earlier ruled against the revised executive order on the travel ban.

The decision by the judges

In delivering judgment, the panel of three Judges said Trump exceeded the limit of the authority accorded him by Congress by issuing the Executive Order.

All the three judges were appointed by former President Bill Clinton.

The Juries made reference to President Donald Trump’s latest tweets on the controversial travel ban.

Trump has said in one of his tweets that the US needs a travel ban for certain dangerous countries.

In the ruling, the judge said the President has confirmed his assessment that it is indeed the countries in his travel ban that are inherently dangerous, rather than the about 180 million citizens of those nations who were restricted from entering the United States under President Trump’s executive order.

An implicative statement by the White House

The juries also cited Sean Spicer White House press secretary’s statement that said tweets by Trump are “considered official statements by the President of the United States.”

The Juries agreed with the ruling by a US District Judge Derrick Watson in March which found the key provisions of the revised travel ban, temporarily barring refugees and citizens from six predominantly Muslim countries entry into the United States, a likely violation of the US constitution because its core aim was to discriminate against Muslims.

The Trump administration to appeal ruling

Sean Spicer said Monday that the Trump administration is reviewing the ruling and said it believes the executive order is lawful and will definitely get the approval of the Supreme Court.

The Department of Justice is yet to react to the Monday judgment.

The verdict on Monday will definitely be appealed to the Supreme Court.

A similar appeal from the Fourth US Circuit Court of Appeals is currently being heard by the apex court.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions had criticized the ruling by Watson, saying he was shocked that a judge who sits on a Pacific island could give such an order that bars a President of the United States from exercising his statutory and constitutional authority.
