Appeals Court Keeps Block on Revised Trump Travel Ban

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals has Upheld an Injunction Blocking a key Part of President Trump's Revised Travel Ban Executive Order.

In a 10-3 vote that fell essentially along Party Lines, the Judges refused to disturb a Lower Court Ruling that Barred the Administration from proceeding with a plan to deny Visas to Citizens of six Majority-Muslim Countries.

A panel of another Federal Appeals Court, the San Francisco-based 9th Circuit, is considering whether to Lift an even Broader Order Blocking the Enforcement of parts of Trump's Directive.

The President billed both Directives as a way to Counter the Threat of Terrorism on U.S. soil, but critics have branded the Orders as transparent attempts to carry out the "Muslim Ban" Trump promised during last year's Presidential Campaign.
