President Donald Trump sent a tweet Thursday night expressing his anger after a federal appeals court refused to reinstate his ban on travel from some majority-Muslim countries.

“SEE YOU IN COURT,” the post said. “THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE.”

In a unanimous decision, the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower-court ruling that suspended the ban and allowed previously barred travelers to enter the U.S.

Thursday’s ruling marked another legal setback for the new administration’s immigration policy.

A federal appeals court says the U.S. government hadn’t pointed to any evidence that anyone from the countries named in the executive order had committed a “terrorist attack” in the U.S.

The panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said, “Rather than present evidence to explain the need for the executive order, the government has taken the position that we must not review its decision at all. We disagree, as explained above.”

Debate over sanctuary cities in southwest Ohio

No Ohio cities appear on a national list of sanctuary cities compiled by a group that wants immigration restricted and Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones said he believes cities making that claim are mostly just “playing to their base.”

Jones said that cities such as Dayton are ‘sanctuary cities’ because they don’t enforce federal immigration law. The city denies it.
