US president Donald Trump has lost an appeal against a court ruling blocking his travel ban on certain travellers and all refugees. The 9th US circuit court of appeals in San Francisco instead asked both the state of Washington and the Trump
administration early on Sunday to file more arguments by Monday afternoon. The Trump administration had launched an appeal againt a federal judge’s ruling that temporarily placed the ban on hold. The higher court’s denial of an immediate stay means legal battles over the ban will continue into the coming week at least.
