Appeals court keeps Trump's travel ban blocked
The judges say the president violated U.S. immigration law by discriminating against people based on their nationality and that Trump failed to show their entry into the country would hurt American interests.
They didn’t rule on whether the travel ban violated the Constitution’s ban on the government officially favoring or disfavoring any religion.
The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia also ruled against the travel ban May 25.
