No decision is expected Tuesday in the case involving President Trump's executive order on immigration, according to Reuters. That means the nationwide temporary restraining order issued by a Seattle federal judge last Friday will continue to stand.
On Monday, the Justice Department urged the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco to reinstate the ban in order to preserve the nation's safety, the New York Times reported.

The ruling will "probably" come this week.
Trump defended his executive order earlier Tuesday, saying it's "common sense" and that "it's very important for the country" for it to be successful, according to CNN.
When asked whether the case would make it to the Supreme Court, Trump said he hoped it wouldn't have to.
"I actually can't believe that we're having to fight to protect the security, in a court system, to protect the security of our nation. I can't even believe it. And a lot of people agree with us, believe me," he added.
