A US appeals court has rejected a request by the White House to immediately reinstate its travel ban, just hours after a defiant Donald Trump promised to win the court battle.
The Department of Justice had filed notice of its intention to challenge Friday night’s order by Judge James Robart which put the ban on immigration from seven Muslim majority countries on hold.
On Sunday morning, news broke that the challenge had been rejected.
The judges making the decision were appointed by Obama and Carter.
