Another legal setback for President Trump's travel ban.

FOX's Jessica Rosenthal has more:

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals said the President exceeded the scope of the authority given to him by Congress with the travel ban. Writing that the state that Hawaii and the Muslim cleric they represent could be harmed by the travel order.

They also wrtie that the President's must show that  the entry of certain immigrants would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, that the order fails to prove why the six banned countries as well as refugees, demonstrate a higher risk, and fails to tie them to terrorist organizations.

The Justice Department has already asked the U.S. Supreme Court to reinstate the travel ban while it decides whether to consider the case. The state of Hawaii filed paperwork arguing the ban on the ban should be kept in place for now.
