SAN FRANCISCO (AP) —  A federal appeals court in San Francisco has refused to reinstate President Donald Trump’s ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday wouldn’t block a lower-court ruling that suspended the ban and allowed previously barred travelers to enter the U.S. An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is possible.

U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle issued a temporary restraining order halting the ban last week after Washington state and Minnesota sued. The Justice Department appealed to the 9th Circuit.

Government lawyers argued that the ban was a “lawful exercise” of the president’s authority and that the seven countries have raised terrorism concerns.

The states said Trump’s executive order unconstitutionally blocked entry based on religion.

Trump tweeted, “SEE YOU IN COURT” after the court’s decision was announced.

Trump also says in the tweet that “THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”

    President Trump is not the 1St President to deal with illegal crisis Go to Bing and type in ” How Eisenhower dealt with America’s first illegal crisis” Now that was a great President and he lead the way for All President to follow. This was in June of 1954. So look it up. what are you afraid of.

    FDR is an icon for Democrats. I wonder what these moronic protestors would say if they were alive in 1942, when he ordered the internment of well over 100,000 Japanese Americans for four years after the outbreak of WWII with Japan.
