The Supreme Court last month agreed to review the legality of Trump's travel ban and is expected in April to hear arguments regarding the order.
The Supreme Court allowed the third version to go into effect while legal proceedings continued.
In a 9-4 vote, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmondsaid 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".
"The Muslim ban has a devastating impact on USA families waiting to reunite with their family members, foreign students seeking educational opportunities, and others who would otherwise be eligible for visas to travel to the United States", said Mariko Hirose, IRAP's Litigation Director. Nine of them concurred that those suing were likely to prevail on their argument the ban disfavors Muslims, violating religious protections in the U.S. Constitution.

The 4th Circuit found that Trump had expressed "what any reasonable observer could view as general anti-Muslim bias". "It's no surprise. The Constitution prohibits government actions hostile to a religion".
Judge Paul Niemeyer, one of the dissenters, denounced his colleagues' "bold effort to second-guess US foreign policy and, in particular, the president's discretionary decisions on immigration, implicating matters of national security". He said the ban is created to protect the nation from terrorism and other threats.
Gregory said that even setting aside Trump's statements during the campaign calling for a Muslim ban, the president had continued to make statements that "convey the primary goal of the Proclamation-to exclude Muslims from the United States".
US Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said the 4th Circuit ruling "does not alter the status quo, and we look forward to ultimate resolution of these issues by the Supreme Court". A federal judge in Seattle soon blocked it, and courts since then have wrestled with the restrictions as the administration has rewritten them.
