Shannon Bream reports on what the ruling means for the trump administration.

SEATTLE – Three Federal appeals court judges, the President, Donald Trump blocked ‘ s second travel ban earlier this year, some of the skeptical questions about his third and final series of restrictions on travellers from six predominantly Muslim Nations during the oral arguments on Wednesday.

Ninth U.S. circuit court of appeals judge Ronald Gould, Richard Paez, and Michael Hawkins heard arguments in the Seattle and Hawaii’s challenge to the ban.

The hearing came just two days after the U.S. Supreme court has announced, so that the restrictions in force, at least until the 9th Circuit panel and your colleagues in the Richmond, Va.-based 4. Circuit had a chance to rule on separate lawsuits against the ban.

The debate about the restrictions has centered on whether it was a legitimate exercise of national security powers, or the “Muslim prohibition of” Trump during his campaign.

The potential impact of the travel ban for national security

But much of the talks on Wednesday focused on a more narrow point: whether the President satisfied with the immigration law in the exhibition of his latest trips to the goals of 150 million potential travellers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

In June, Gould, Paez, and Hawkins Trump blocked ‘ s second travel ban, says he is not required to find that the entry of people who would be affected by this measure, harmful to US interests.

Neal Katyal, former U.S. attorney General represented Hawaii, insisted that Trump had failed again and have not the authority, the release of his latest travel restrictions.

What is the travel ban is a small victory for illegal immigration

Deputy Assistant Attorney General Hashim Mooppan noted that the government had to give carried out a 90-day, multi-Agency, after the trump suit is determined that certain countries do not have enough information to sufficiently vet their citizens.

The prohibition is required to “foreign nationals, the government of the United States, there is not enough information to assess the risks for the United States,” the President said in his September proclamation, the announcement of the latest travel restrictions.

“You might not agree with the finding, but you can not deny that the discovery was made,” the Mooppan said.

Hawaii Attorney General Douglas chin, said after the hearing that the provision not only is there a lack of information on vocational education and training of foreigners is the same as the completion of their admission in the United States would be harmful.

The government, he said, “has not told us why the existing system works.”

Citing national security concerns, Trump announced its first travel ban for members of certain Muslim-majority Nations at the end of January, bring Chaos and protests at airports around the country. A Federal judge in Seattle blocked soon, and the courts have since wrestled with the limitations, the administration has been re-written.

The latest version of blocks travelers from the mentioned countries, in varying degrees, so that students from some countries, while other business blocks, travellers and tourists, and for the approval, on a case-to-case basis. It also blocks the travel by North Koreans along with some Venezuelan government officials and their families, although these parts of the restrictions are not in question in the courts.

Mooppan argued that the courts do not have the authority to consider, claims that the President’s actions against the Federal immigration law, although he said that it is possible courts could consider the claims that the actions against the Constitution.

This statement drew skeptical questioning from the judges, including a hypothetical of Gould: What everyone who are not U.S. citizens, if the President decided to bar?

Mooppan said, such a drastic measure could not be verified, to do by the courts, unless Congress authorized them.

Paez question the legitimacy of the administration, the justification for the restrictions, noting the exceptions for a student Visa: If the governments do not provide sufficient information on why you let someone?

Mooppan said, the restrictions are carefully tailored to encourage for each country, and partly developed to be more forthcoming with the United States, show the exceptions, the government is not obliged to ban Muslims, he said.

There was some discussion about the president’s public statements about Muslims. Katyal pointed out that Trump’s moods continue to stir up anti-Islam. Last week he drew a sharp condemnation from the British Prime Minister, Theresa May’s office, when he retweeted a string of inflammatory videos from fringe British political group, allegedly show that violence by Muslims.

Gould said the panel would rule “as quickly as practical,” the Supreme court had suggested in its order this week, the appeals courts rule, with appropriate urgency. Arguments due to be held Friday will be a full complement of 13 4. Circuit Judge.
