In a 3 – 0 unanimous decision The 9th Circuit Court ruled in favor of suspending the Muslim Ban. In other words, to continue to Temporary Restraining Order issued by the Federal District Court Judge James Robart. President Trump has several options. Option 1. Appeal the decision to the Supreme Court – this will take months. Option 2. Not bother to take the matter further – unlikely. Option 3. Write a new less restrictive Executive Order, still seeking to ban people from the seven countries lists.

What Will President Trump Do next?

Even if President Trump Decided to re-draft a new Executive Order seeking to Ban Muslims from the seven listed countries, but with exemptions such as to exclude Green Card holders, lawyers could still file a new injunction if they felt the restrictions were still unconstitutional. President Trump having now lost two Court decisions regarding the ban has to weigh up the risks and potential embarrassment of losing a third time. If Trump Appeals to the Supreme Court, some legal scholars feel he might yet win, but for now the “Muslim ban” is remains no longer in force.
