Since Friday morning, President Trump has been making note of the major omission concerning the travel ban ruling.  The writer, Brookings fellow and Lawfare editor-in-chief skilled over a key part of the United States code on "inadmissible aliens" which Trump recited on Wednesday in defense of his immigration restrictions. 

The statute reads, "Whenever the President finds that the entry of any alien or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens, or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate." 

Normally, in a case of this magnitude, the courts would give deference to the President on matters of restricting immigration but the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals didn't view this as unreviewable.  Click on the link from to read the full story.
