Actually, the only surprise is that it didn’t happen earlier on Saturday. CNN reports:

The Justice Department on Saturday moved to appeal a decision that temporarily halted enforcement of President Donald Trump’s travel ban.

The appeal concerns a late Friday decision by a US district court that halted the enforcement of Trump’s executive order. Trump’s policy banned travel to the US from seven Muslim-majority countries for 90 days, suspended all refugee entry to the US for 120 days and indefinitely suspended entry for Syrian refugees.

A notice of appeal was sent Saturday night to the US district court, where Judge James Robart, a George W. Bush appointee, presides in Seattle.

The Justice Department is expected to file its brief laying out its legal argument later Saturday night to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which will hear the case.

    Yeah, sorry, it was never an executive order. It was a Homeland Security order. Because Donald Trump can never be overruled. Donald Trump can never be wrong.

      Oh and by the way this is why Donald Trump’s lawyers never walk into a meeting with him unless accompanied by other lawyers.
