Trump to appeal judge's ruling against travel ban
by Lydia Wheeler
The Trump administration filed papers Friday notifying a federal court in Maryland that it plans to appeal an order blocking his revised travel ban.
District judges in Hawaii and Maryland issued separate orders this week blocking the executive order that temporarily bans nationals from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. hours before it was set to take effect.
President Trump's first order was blocked last month by a federal judge in Washington state. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals declined to reinstate the ban and then refused this week to rehear Trump's case with its full panel of judges.
