http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/02/09/dem-sen-booker-on-9th-circuit-ruling-good-day-for-america-makes-us-safer/

When asked if it would be a good day if Trump’s travel restriction had completely gone away, Booker added, “I think it would be a good day for America because it makes us safer. Democrats and Republicans are vested in the security of our country. But when you know that our enemies are using the ban as a demonstration in their effort to establish a caliphate, that this is a war on Islam. This is giving them strength in rhetoric, recruiting and alike. It’s not making us safer.”

A look at what comes next in Trump travel ban case

WHAT DOES THE RULING MEAN?

For now, it means refugees and people from seven majority-Muslim nations identified in the president’s surprise Jan. 27 executive order can continue entering the country. Travelers from those countries won’t be detained, or put back on planes heading overseas, and there won’t likely be more protests jamming the nation’s airports as there were after Trump issued the surprise order.

But the executive order isn’t dead, either — it just isn’t being enforced while the courts debate its legality. The federal government has 14 days to ask the 9th Circuit to reconsider Thursday’s decision. It could also file an emergency appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court, which would go to Justice Anthony Kennedy for referral to the rest of the court.
