After much debate over the Immigration Order’s constitutionality, a federal appeals court rejected the restoration on Feb. 5.

The Department of Justice requested the restoration of President Donald Trump’s immigration order last week. Now, after the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit denied the restoration, aid the Trump Administration must respond to the ruling on Monday.

The Court of Appeals, located in California, making this decision means that immigrants from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen may come to the U.S.

The latest decision is the most recent part of back-and-forth rulings on the ‘Muslim ban.’

A Federal District Court in Seattle blocked President Trump’s order Friday. However, the Justice Department overturned that decision late Saturday. Furthering their explanation, the Justice Department said President Trump has the constitutional authority to order the ban. They also said the appeal of the order “second-guesses the president’s national security judgment.”

Taking to Twitter Saturday, Trump said, “The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!”

Although President Trump was in Mar-a-Lago, Florida Saturday night for the Red Cross gala, reporters asked him about the situation.

“We’ll win,” Trump said. “For the safety of the country, we’ll win.”

The immigration order’s appeal bans the Trump Administration from enforcing limits on accepting refugees. Judge Robart said the decision to appeal the order is because “there’s no support” for Trump’s argument that “we have to protect the U.S. from individuals” from the banned countries.

At this point, the State Department said refugees, including those from Syria, could begin arriving in the United States beginning Monday. State Department officials are working to rebook travel arrangements for refugees who had previous travel plans to the U.S. They are rebooking travel for immigrants scheduled to leave by Feb. 1, approximately 2,000 refugees.
