Trump Loses Travel Ban Ruling in Appeals Court | 12 June 2017 | A second federal appeals court on Monday ruled against President Trump's revised travel ban. The decision, from the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, was the latest in a string of court rulings rejecting the administration’s efforts to limit travel from several predominantly Muslim countries.

The new ruling affirmed a March decision from Judge Derrick K. Watson, of the Federal District Court in Hawaii. Judge Watson blocked major parts of the revised order, saying they violated the Constitution's ban on a government establishment of religion [but, in actuality, enforcing the prime directive: US corporations must continue have access to a pool of cheap labor, subsidized at taxpayers' expense].
