Trump immigration order's critics urge courts not to allow resumption of travel ban


Three states, nearly 100 technology companies and a variety of immigrant rights advocacy groups are pleading with a federal appeals court not to allow President Donald Trump to reinstate his executive order sharply limiting travel to the U.S. by citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries.

The legal briefs piled up at the San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court of Appeals late Sunday and in the wee hours of Monday morning as critics of Trump's travel ban fought a federal government request to lift an order a federal district court judge in Seattle issued Friday temporarily blocking most of the key aspects of Trump's controversial immigration-limiting anti-terrorism directive.

A three-judge 9th Circuit panel is expected to rule as soon as Monday evening on the Justice Department's stay request, teeing up a likely repeat of the same battle at the U.S. Supreme Court.
