A Virginia-based federal appeals court on Thursday ruled against the latest version of President Trump’s travel ban affecting residents of six majority-Muslim countries ahead of the U.S. Supreme Court’s expected decision in the case this year.

In a 9-4 vote, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond said it examined statements made by Trump and other administration officials, as well as the ban itself, and concluded that it is "unconstitutionally tainted with animus toward Islam."
