Thursday afternoon, a federal appeals court in Richmond upheld the nation-wide block on President Trump's travel ban, which prevented citizens of several majority-Muslim countries from traveling into the U.S.

Chief Judge Roger Gregory ruled that the order, "speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination."

This is administration's second attempt at a travel ban. The first was blocked in February after it caused chaos in airports across the country.

What's next: Trump has threatened previously to take the fight over the ban to the Supreme Court, and it appears that's where the final ruling will be made.
