Appeals court rules latest Trump travel ban is unconstitutional

A Virginia-based federal court of appeals on Thursday ruled the latest version of President Trump’s travel ban unconstitutional citing that it unlawfully discriminates against Muslims.

In a 9-4 decision, a majority of the judges on the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals said it examined official statements from Trump and other executive branch officials, along with the proclamation itself, and found it “unconstitutionally tainted with animus toward Islam.”
