Sen. Tom Cotton slammed a "misguided" appeal panel's ruling that refused to reinstate President Donald Trump's travel ban against seven Muslim-majority countries Thursday night.

In a statement, the Arkansas Republican took direct aim at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals as "the most notoriously left-wing court in America."

"President Trump's order to temporarily pause the refugee program and travel from seven war-torn countries is plainly legal under the Constitution and our immigration laws," Cotton declared.

"No foreigner has a constitutional right to enter the United States and courts ought not second-guess sensitive national-security decisions of the president."

He added: "This misguided ruling is from the Ninth Circuit, the most notoriously left-wing court in America, and the most reversed court at the Supreme Court. I'm confident the administration's position will ultimately prevail."

A spokesperson for the Department of Justice said Thursday it is "reviewing the decision and considering its options," The Hill reported.
