Trump immigration ruling not until Thursday at the earliest


Lawyers for the federal government then requested the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals pause Robart's decision.

Trump's order barred travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering for 90 days and all refugees for 120 days, except refugees from Syria, whom he would ban indefinitely.

President Trump lambasted the court case against his travel ban Wednesday, calling it "disgraceful" and suggesting that judges not siding with his executive order are not able to read.

The Seattle judge, responding to a challenge by Washington state, suspended the order last Friday. The Justice Department is nearly certain to appeal, and the case is likely to make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court, though the appeals process could take over a year to get there.

He also pointed to statements made by one of the president's advisers, Rudy Giuliani, who said he was asked to come up with a way of making a Muslim ban work legally.

"There is no precedent to support this claimed unreviewability, which runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our constitutional democracy", the court said in its ruling Thursday. The US Supreme Court will likely determine the case's final outcome.

Washington state's attorney general, Bob Ferguson, said on CNN after the ruling: "We are a nation of laws ... those laws apply to everybody in our country". In other words, if it was an effort to ban Muslims, why not include other countries? He told the judges when the ban was in place it caused "irreparable harm" to Washington state. "We will keep fighting this un-American executive order until it is permanently dismantled".

He said the ruling was "a political decision" and predicted that his administration would win an appeal "in my opinion, very easily", the New York Times said.

The appellate judges, meanwhile, have noted compelling public interests on both sides.
