Federal Court Hears Appeal on Trump's Travel Ban Executive Order

The battle over President Donald Trump’s controversial executive order limiting travel from 7 Muslim-majority countries has moved to an appeals court in San Francisco. A three judge panel heard arguments from a lawyer from the Trump administration, and from a lawyer representing Washington and Minnesota, states that oppose the executive order. The arguments turned on whether the court can second-guess Trump’s executive order, and on whether the order is unconstitutionally discriminatory.
