The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is considering arguments over lifting a temporary halt to President Trump’s controversial travel ban, did not give any decision issued on Wednesday. Three judges from the court heard arguments from Department of Justice and Washington state attorneys Tuesday afternoon over whether to reinstate Trump’s executive order stopping refugee admission and immigration from seven mostly Muslim countries. “….the court will provide advance notice of 60 to 90 minutes when a decision is imminent,” David Madden, 9th Circuit official, said in an email.
The ban had been put on hold nationwide Friday following the order of a federal district judge in Seattle who is presiding over a lawsuit from Washington and Minnesota states against the ban. The Trump administration has asked the 9th Circuit to reverse the Seattle decision.
It’s widely expected that a decision will be reached this week. If the halt on the ban is kept in place, the Justice Department is expected to ask for a review from the full court to or ask the Supreme Court to take up the issue.
