The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals refused to reinstate Trump’s immigration ban by appealing the lower court ruling which halted the executive order.
President Donald Trump furiously responded to the ruling through Twitter claiming that the security of the nation is vulnerable and implied a court challenge to the ruling.
The unanimous 3-0 final ruling explained that the administration failed to provide sufficient proof that the acclaimed terrorist threats to justify reinstating the immigration ban.
The ruling stated that “The government has pointed to no evidence that any alien from any of the countries named in the Order has perpetrated a terrorist attack in the United States.”
The ruling also were not persuaded by the argument that the president has the complete power to set immigration policy.
“Rather than presenting evidence to explain the need for the executive order, the government instead resorts to the position that there is no precedence to review the decision at all,” the court reported. “We, disagree, as elaborated above.”
President Trump’s lawyers failed to present their case effectively. Actually, three Ninth Circuit judges claim that his lawyers hardly tried to present their case. The Trump administration sole argument was that the president’s executive power on immigration was so influential that they did not need to explain why the order was necessary to a judicial court.
The administration failed to effectively explain why President Trump’s executive order addressed a grave national security threat that the temporary stay of the order would worsen. The lawyers opposing the reinstating instead were able to convince the judges that re-imposing the executive order would only cause more chaos by infringing on the due process rights of those in the U.S., regardless of their immigration status.
