Trump administration’s appeal to reinstate travel ban rejected by federal court
BBC – The US federal appeals court has rejected the Trump administration’s request to reinstate a travel ban blocked by a federal judge on Friday.
The late night ruling means the travel ban will remain suspended until the full case has been heard.
The court gave the White House and the states challenging it a deadline of Monday to present more arguments.
Two states argued that the travel ban, affecting people from seven mainly-Muslim countries, was unconstitutional.
In its appeal, the Justice Department said Judge James Robart had overreached by “second guessing” the president on a national security matter.
It also argued that only the president could decide who can enter or stay in the US.
