A legal setback for the Trump Administration and its efforts to impose President Trump's travel ban.
FOX's Jon Decker has more from the White House:
The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has reopened the country's door to thousands of refugees who had been temporarily blocked by President Trump's travel ban.
The unanimous ruling means that grandparents, cousins and other close relatives of people in the U.S. should not be prevented from coming to America from six predominantly Muslim countries.
The decision upheld a ruling by a federal judge in Hawaii, who found the administration's view of who should be allowed into the country under the travel ban is too strict.
The Court in its decision said the government does not offer a persuasive explanation for why a mother-in-law is clearly a bona fide relationship, but a grandparent, grandchild, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, or cousin is not.
