A Virginia-based federal appeals court blocked the Trump administration’s controversial travel ban, becoming the second circuit court to uphold lower court rulings against the policy.
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond issued the ruling Thursday, following arguments May 8.
The ruling means the Trump administration still cannot enforce its travel ban which affects six Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Libya and Sudan.
“We remain unconvinced [the ban] has more to do with national security than it does with effectuating the President’s promised Muslim ban,” the court said.
