Will the Trump administration find a way to effect a travel ban?
If you pore through conservative media, the answer is clear: yes.
A day after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals refused to reinstate President Trump’s controversial executive order barring travelers from seven majority-Muslim countries, there were plenty of conservative views noting that this issue is far from resolved.
Trump tweeted on Friday that it was a “disgraceful decision” -- and there was agreement out there.
Here are some of today’s headlines:

The case is likely to eventually reach the U.S. Supreme Court, where eight justices could hear the matter as Trump’s nominee for the high court, Neil Gorsuch, awaits confirmation. This could lead to a 4-4 decision, which would leave the lower court’s rulings in place.
Still, this article focused on an American Bar Assn. analysis from 2010, which found that eight of out of 10 cases from the 9th Circuit that are reviewed by the Supreme Court are overruled.
“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,” the analysis noted.
It is notable that the appellate panel which heard the case this week, comprised of three judges -- two Democratic appointees and one appointed by a Republican -- unanimously ruled against Trump.
