Yesterday, the hold on President Trump’s executive order on immigration was upheld by the very liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

While this was definitely a setback for Trump it is important to keep things in perspective when talking about this court.

Here’s some background…

From The Daily Caller:

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals — which ruled Thursday against reinstating President Trump’s travel ban affecting seven terror-prone countries — has an unusually high reversal rate before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Eight of out of 10 cases from the 9th Circuit reviewed by the Supreme Court are overruled, according to a 2010 analysis published by the American Bar Association. The 9th Circuit, which is known for its liberal tendencies, has the second-highest reversal rate of the 13 appellate courts below the Supreme Court.

This was an uphill battle from the start.

Donald Trump appears ready to take this case to the Supreme Court and many legal scholars have confirmed the legality and constitutionality of this order.

Here’s Judge Andrew Napolitano’s take on what happened.
