President Trump’s Department of Justice asked for a hold on court proceedings on the temporary travel ban order and an appeals court is now saying no.
FOX’s Jessica Rosenthal reports:
The Ninth Circuit court has denied a request to put the travel ban court case on hold. The Trump Administration appealed a judge’s temporary suspension of the ban, but then asked for a delay in proceedings while it crafted a new order. That new order should be ready by this Wednesday.
Separately, two weeks ago the Seattle judge who initially suspended the refugee and immigrant travel order, said the case should move forward on its merits. The Ninth Circuit had agreed with the lower court judge in suspending the travel order, chief among its findings, that this kind of executive order is subject to scrutiny by the courts.
President Trump’s new order will likely make clear exceptions to those holding U.S. green cards.
