Executive on U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' decision: Today's ruling heartens all who believe in the rule of law

Summary

King County Executive Dow Constantine today issued the following statement in regard to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' decision on the Trump administration's travel ban.

Story

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to affirm U.S. District Judge Robart’s temporary suspension of the president’s ill-conceived ban on Muslim immigration is another setback for this Administration, and another win for the U.S. Constitution.

The legal fight will likely continue to the U.S. Supreme Court, but today’s ruling heartens all who believe in the rule of law. The actions by this president run counter to our community’s core values: compassion, opportunity, and equity. We will not rest until this wrong-headed executive action is permanently reversed.
