Indian-American Congresswoman said this after the judgment by the three-judge bench declined to the reinstate Donald Trump's controversial executive order to temporarily ban refugees and people from seven Muslim nations.

One of the leading Democratic lawmakers against Trump’ executive order, Jayapal said, "This is an enormous victory for democracy and for families in our country and around the world. The justices unanimously rejected the idea that they should narrow the temporary restraining order based on geography or scope. They signalled that this executive order will likely be overturned in higher court.”

Trump administration had argued on the executive order as a major step to prevent the country from the radical Islamic terrorists. The judgment is seen as a major setback for the Trump administration.

After this news, Trump wrote a tweet, “See you in court, the security of our nation is at stake!”.
