The Trump administration isn't planning on appealing the travel ban to the Supreme Court


Donald Trump's White House has indicated to CNN that the president does not plan on appealing the 9th Circuit Court's ruling on the stay of his immigration executive order. Instead, Trump is planning on defending the order while the stay is in place.

Trump issued an executive order that put a pause on immigration from refugees from seven countries. 

The Trump White House disputed the reporting. "We could take the TRO [the stay] to Supreme Court. We are reviewing all of our options in the court system and confident we will prevail on the merits of the case. Additionally we are actively pursuing other Executive Orders that will keep our country safe from terrorism."

Even if defending the order fails, Trump may sign a new executive order.
