Appeals Court Denies DOJ Request To Immediately Reinstate Trump Immigration Order


The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit denied this morning President Donald Trump’s request for an immediate stay on the federal judge’s temporary block on enforcement of his immigration executive order, THE WEEK reports.

The first ruling was issued Friday night in response to a suit from the states of Washington and Minnesota, and on Shabbos morning Trump labeled it a “ridiculous” decision from a “so-called judge.” Later yesterday, the Trump Department of Justice (DOJ) appealed, arguing that the “power to expel or exclude aliens is a fundamental sovereign attribute, delegated by Congress to the executive branch of government and largely immune from judicial control.”

The appeals court denied the DOJ’s request for an immediate stay, THE WEEK reports, instead leaving the order suspension intact while asking both sides to file legal briefs before Monday afternoon so a final ruling can be reached.
