The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco (California) upheld the lower-court ruling which temporarily halted Trump’s immigration order banning the entry for citizens of seven countries with mostly Muslim population. United States Department of Justice tried to appeal the court’s decision and reinstate the decree.

This was reported by Reuters.

The court noted that the authorities have not provided convincing evidence that the citizens of banned countries could pose threat to national security of the USA and could be suspected in preparing terrorist act in the country.

Federal court in Seattle (Washington) blocked the order of US President Donald Trump which prohibited refugees’ entry into the country and granting visas to the citizens of seven states, populated mostly with Muslim, on February 4. The ruling was halted until the application filled by the local attorney office is considered.

Right after this occasion, American passport authorities began to renew visas, which had earlier been revoked due to the introduced decree.
