Another defeat for Trump's travel ban

By a 10 to 3 decision, the full 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia refused the Trump administration's appeal to reinstate his travel ban, as revised after the first one was rejected by the courts.    The majority was "unconvinced" that it had more to do with national security than that it was a de facto Muslim ban.

In arriving at this decision, it seemed evident from the oral arguments that the court was taking seriously the extra-judicial statements made by Trump and his associates as indication of the real motives.

Civics 101, Mr. President.
