Sanders: Court ruling might 'teach President Trump a lesson'

Without offering advance notice to most of the parties involved, Trump on January 27 signed an executive order banning Syrian refugees and immigrants living in seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States.

A travel ban by President Donald Trump violates the Constitution, immigration laws and harms business, 97 American companies have said in a court motion that challenges the order.

The panel declined to block a lower-court ruling that suspended the ban and allowed previously barred travelers to enter the US.

The ruling upholds the February 3 temporary restraining order issued by US District Judge James Robart.

The defendant of Trump's administration, the Justice Department also released a statement saying that it was "reviewing the decision and considering its options".

The decision from the three judges was unanimous, siding with Purcell and the initial ruling from Judge Robart.

Trump was upset with the ruling and attacked U.S. District Judge James Robart, calling him a "so-called judge" and disparaging his decision as "ridiculous". The government, in response, had appealed against the suspension arguing that the order should be immediately reinstated for national security reasons. "And on the other, the public also has an interest in free flow of travel, in avoiding separation of families, and in freedom from discrimination".

August Flentje, special counsel to the assistant attorney general, said the government is aware of some foreign nationals who have been arrested in the United States since Sept 11, without giving details of the evidence. Some travelers reported being asked about religious affiliations and even about their views on the Trump administration.

Judge Richard Clifton, Judge William Canby and Judge Michelle Friedland who heard the case.

"I don't ever want to call a court biased", he said.

With the ninth court of appeals refusing to reinstate the ban, the case is now very likely to head to the US Supreme Court. The initial implementation of the ban affected tens of thousands of people and caused chaos at airports nationwide as the Department of Homeland Security scrambled to interpret the order, which was later adjusted to exempt green-card holders.

Commenting on the Tuesday night 9th Circuit Court hearing, Trump said, "I heard things that I couldn't believe".
