What exactly is illegal?

U.S. Federal Code: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1182
(f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens 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. ...

I'm not sure what exactly about Trump's halting of travel to US from terrorist countries the 9th Circuit Court of the United States found illegal. Are you allowed to just make judicial decisions because you "feel" like it? Because all of your friends in Seattle wouldn't welcome you to their dinner parties any more should you actually make an intellectually-based, hard-core Constitutional decision?
