Trump Loses In Court Again After 4th Circuit Upholds Block Of Travel Ban

• http://www.zerohedge.com, by Tyler Durden

As NBC explains, a Richmond, VA-based federal appeals court on Thursday refused to reinstate President Trump's ban on nationals from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S., delivering a major blow to the Trump administration.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals said in its ruling that Trump's executive order "speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination" and noted that the President's power to deny entry to immigrants is "broad" but "not absolute."

"It cannot go unchecked when, as here, the President wields it through an executive edict that stands to cause irreparable harm to individuals across this nation," he wrote.

The court's decision keeps a Maryland court's order blocking the ban in place.
