Appeals court crushes DOJ appeal of order ending Trump travel ban
A federal appeals court early Sunday rejected the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) request to restore President Trump’s travel ban on immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in San Francisco denied the DOJ’s request an emergency stay, pending full consideration of the motion.
The court requested a response from attorneys general in Washington state and Minnesota on Sunday and from the administration by Monday afternoon.
The Justice Department filed a notice Saturday evening that it would formally appeal a temporary nationwide restraining order issued by a federal judge in Seattle on Friday, which immediately halted Trump’s immigration order.
On Friday, a federal judge blocked the executive order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.
