Tonight's unanimous Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling is a proud moment for the rule of law and America's wise system of checks and balances. It's also a stinging rebuke to President Trump's authoritarian style of governing, and it forcefully proves that none of our co-equal branches of government will be bullied.

U.S Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement regarding the federal appeals court ruling that refused to reinstate President Trump's Muslim travel ban: 

 

“Tonight’s unanimous Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling is a proud moment for the rule of law and America’s wise system of checks and balances. It’s also a stinging rebuke to President Trump’s authoritarian style of governing, and it forcefully proves that none of our co-equal branches of government will be bullied. 

 

This ban against refugees and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries did not make us safer - on the contrary. I will continue to stand with Democrats and anyone willing to oppose this reckless, unconstitutional and morally offensive immigration ban.”
