NEW YORK — A federal appeals court today declined to reinstate President Trump’s Muslim ban.

Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, had this reaction to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision:

“The appeals court’s refusal to reinstate the Muslim ban is correct. The government’s erratic and chaotic attempts to enforce this unconstitutional ban have taken a tremendous toll on innocent individuals, our country’s values, and our standing in the world. We will keep fighting this un-American executive order until it is permanently dismantled.”
