A U.S. Appeals Court has refused to reinstate President Donald trump’s ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries.

The ban temporarily prevented travel to the U.S.from those countries.

A Federal judge in Washington State suspended parts of the order Friday.

One of the biggest critics of the travel ban, is the American Civil Liberties Union.

They say the ban targets a specific religion.

Lawmakers in favor of the ban insist it was put in place to help improve the immigration vetting process.
