Statement from AG Jepsen on Appeals Court Ruling on President Trumpís Executive Order
 
 
Attorney General George Jepsen today issued the following statement on the ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit that upholds the District Courtís temporary restraining order that has halted President Donald Trump's executive order barring individuals from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States:
 
ďI applaud the Court of Appeals for upholding the order preventing enforcement of President Trumpís ill-conceived and unconstitutional travel ban. The ban, and the Presidentís inappropriate and unfortunate attacks on the judges reviewing it, violate our most cherished American values. I will continue to participate in legal challenges to the ban in this case and in others.Ē
