In a 10-3 ruling, the Fourth Circuit ruled to uphold a lower court ruling which blocked the Trump administration from suspending visas from the Muslim majority countries mentioned in the executive order.
As part of its ruling, the court said the ban "speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination," reported The Hill.
Although Trump has seen many blow backs to his executive order, he said he would be willing to take the issue to the Supreme Court.
Earlier this year, a federal judge in Hawaii halted the order, and the Trump administration is currently fighting the ruling in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, reported CNBC.
