Trump's Travel Ban Exceeds Presidential Authority
9th Circuit Appeals Court Rules

President Donald Trump signs an executive order at the White House, June 15, 2017.
By Bradford Betz | Fox News - 5 Hours Ago

A federal appeals court panel in San Francisco ruled late Friday that President Donald Trump exceeded his presidential powers with the third version of his controversial travel ban.

The panel ruled unanimously in a 77-page decision that read, ďWe conclude that the Presidentís issuance of the Proclamation once against exceeds the scope of his delegated authority.Ē

But the ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will have no immediate effect because the Supreme Court decided earlier this month that Trump's ban could be fully implemented while the administration appeals a pair of injunctions against the policy, Politico reported.

Presidential Proclamation 9645, signed in September, is the third iteration of the Trump administrationís controversial travel ban this year, after previous versions in March and January.

The latest version restricts nationals from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen from traveling to the U.S. Unlike the previous versions, the latest installment of the travel ban has no definitive expiration date.

According to the Trump administration, the countries were chosen because they donít do a good job of verifying or sharing information about their citizens and thus the U.S. government lacks sufficient information to assess the risks they might pose to the U.S.

Judges have previously ruled that the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 gives Trump broad powers to regulate immigration. But in order for the travel ban to be upheld, the Trump administration would have to legally prove that a personís entry from the list of banned countries would be harmful to the interests of the United States.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.


Ed Note: The pansy Judges in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals are tilting at windmills again. Th US Supreme Court already ruled in favor of Trump on this matter. The 9th's actions are mostly imbecilic and meaninglessly symbolic.
