A federal appeals court launched another assault on President Trump’s extreme vetting travel ban Monday, ruling that the White House never proved a connection between terrorism and the six majority-Muslim countries targeted by Mr. Trump.
The court also became the latest court to throw the president’s own words back at him — this time using Mr. Trump’s Twitter posts last week, saying the president’s claims of a travel ban aimed at “certain dangerous countries” prove he went beyond the law.
In a unanimous ruling, the three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that while Mr. Trump claimed he was acting in the interests of national security, they found his reasoning lacking. Without a better justification, they said, his extreme vetting executive order is illegal.
The decision leaves in limbo Mr. Trump’s attempts to halt travel from the six countries and his pause on the refugee program.
