Spicer: Administration to Aggressively Appeal Travel Ban Ruling

Unfortunately this could go to the Supreme Court, where there are only four justices who might put principle ahead of politics, and four who won’t.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Thursday reacted to the federal court rulings blocking President Trump’s so-called travel ban by saying: “We intend to appeal the flawed rulings,” the Washington Examiner reported.

During an afternoon press briefing, Spicer said the Department of Justice “is exploring all available options to vigorously defend this executive order.”

On Wednesday, a federal judge in Hawaii issued a restraining order against Trump’s revised travel ban that affects six countries from the Middle East and North Africa.

Watson, the federal judge, in the ruling.
