Get ready for a new Twitter rant from Donald Trump.
The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, located in Virginia, has upheld an injunction against President Trump’s travel ban from six Muslim-majority countries.
The executive order would have banned people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from entering the US for 90 days and all refugees for 120 days.
As I recall, the point of the “ban” was to give the Trump administration time to examine ways to improve national security. But, hasn’t it been more than 90 days by now anyway? Haven’t they figured out what it was they wanted to figure out?
The ruling notes that Trump’s executive order “speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination.”
