Appeals Court Rules Against President Trump Over Scope of Travel Ban

President Donald Trump suffered another setback on his embattled travel ban, with an appeals panel leaving in a place a lower-court ruling that forces the administration to accept people with grandparents, cousins and other relatives in the U.S.

Thursday’s decision by a three-judge panel of the San Francisco-based appeals court further frustrates the Trump administration as it heads toward an Oct. 10 showdown before the U.S. Supreme Court over the broader legality of the president’s executive order temporarily barring travelers from six mostly Muslim nations.

The Ninth Circuit panel also said Trump was wrong in how he interpreted an earlier order by high court to apply restrictions to thousands of refugees seeking entry into the U.S.
