Five Judges of 9th Circuit Court of Appeals: Travel Ban by Executive Order is Constitutional

On March 15, 2017, the written opinion of five judges of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit was released, and in said opinion, the judges articulate why President Donald Trump's "Muslim travel ban" via executive order is constitutional.

The dissenting judges describe the three-judge panel's decision to block the travel ban as "manifest error" and opine it as a "failure" to not overturn it.  "The panel's errors are many and obvious," the dissenting judges decree.

Jay Bybee wrote the dissenting opinion, and it was joined by Alex Kozinski, Consuelo María Callahan, Carlos Bea, and Sandra Segal Ikuta.
