NEW YORK - The US 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Thursday to keep largely in place a block on President Donald Trump's temporary travel ban for six Muslim-majority nations.

A majority of judges on the appeals court in a 10-3 decision said they were "unconvinced" the travel order had more to do with national security concerns than a "Muslim ban."

The court also found the challengers were likely to suffer "irreparable harm" if the ban were implemented and that it might violate the US Constitution.
