The Washington, D.C.-based group Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which filed an amicus brief in the case against the Trump Administration, celebrated the Ninth Circuit panel's ruling.
Richard B. Katskee, legal director of Americans United, said in a statement released Monday that "President Trump is not above the law."
"This ban is blatantly un-American. It violates our nation's fundamental promise of religious freedom – that people have the right to believe or not as they see fit without fear of discrimination by the government," stated Katskee.
"If the Supreme Court decides to hear these cases, we hope and expect that it will affirm that Trump's ill-conceived order fosters religious intolerance and cannot stand."
