The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has denied the government’s request to put a stay on a temporary restraining order issued by a federal court judge, putting President Donald Trump’s travel ban on hold.
That means the ban will not be enforced for now, as the case continues to play out in federal court. The Trump administration is likely to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Arguments over the constitutionality of the executive order will be heard in district court.
President Trump responds on Twitter “SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”
