A federal appeals court rejected a Trump administration appeal to restore the travel ban

A federal appeals court rejected an appeal by the Justice Department to reinstate President Trump's controversial travel ban early Sunday morning.

The U.S. District Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco said a reply from the Trump administration was due Monday, The New York Times reports.  

This means refugees and travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen would be able to enter the U.S.

Judge James L. Robart, a judge in the U.S. district Court for the Western District of Washington who was appointed by former President George W. Bush, put the ban on hold on Friday. The ruling was swiftly appealed, and Trump criticized Robart for making a decision he claimed put Americans in danger. 

Sunday's ruling means the state of Washington and the Trump administration must file additional arguments by Monday afternoon. 

Trump insisted Robart's ruling would be overturned.
