Federal Court Deals Blow to Trump Travel Ban

In the U.S., a federal court struck another blow Thursday to President Trump’s ban on refugees and travelers from six majority-Muslim nations. The unanimous ruling by three judges on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected an attempt by the Trump administration to deny visas to grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who wish to travel from the affected countries to join relatives living in the U.S.

The Justice Department said it will challenge the latest ruling on the travel ban when the Supreme Court hears the case next month.
