The Trump administration on Saturday afternoon file a notice of appeal of federal Judge James Robart’s travel-ban ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, in San Francisco.
It is filed on behalf of “the defendants Donald Trump, in his official capacity as president of the United States; United States Department of Homeland Security; John F. Kelly in his official capacity as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security; Rex W. Tillerson in his official capacity as Secretary of State and the United States of America.”
Robart, a U.S. District judge, sent shock waves across the country with his decision in Seattle on Friday to temporarily block enforcement of Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order, which denied entry to the U.S. to refugees and to people from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
His ruling was in response to a lawsuit brought by Washington Attorney General General Bob Ferguson, who sued three days after the order was issued, arguing the order violates constitutional guarantees of religious freedom and equal protection.
Following Robart’s decision Friday, the government Saturday suspended enforcement of Trump’s refugee and immigration ban.
