“Appeals Court Ruling On Immigration Executive Order Is A ‘Political Decision’,” Says Donald Trump

President Donald Trump reacted swiftly to a federal appeals court’s decision to keep a restraining order against his controversial executive order in place, describing the justices’ ruling a “political decision.”

Trump briefly addressed a small group of reporters waiting outside White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s office Thursday, saying he looks forward to challenging the ruling in court.

“It’s a political decision, and we’re going to see them in court, and I look forward to doing it,” the president said

Trump echoed those remarks on social media, tweeting,”SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”

“We have a situation where the security of our country is at stake, and it’s a very, very serious situation and so we look forward, as I just said, to seeing them in court,” Trump told reporters.

A three-judge panel ruled to keep a restraining order against Trump’s controversial immigration action in place, according to court documents.

“We hold that the Government has not shown a likelihood of success on the merits of its appeal, nor has it shown that failure to enter a stay would cause irreparable injury, and we therefore deny its emergency motion for a stay,” the panel, from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, wrote in the decision Thursday.
