Los Angeles : In an expected and much-awaited move, Donald Trump government on Saturday filed a formal notice of appeal of the temporary restraining order of his travel ban.

The Muslim Ban was halted temporarily after an order was issued by a federal judge in Washington on Friday.

The nationwide restraining order was issued by U.S. District Judge James L. Robart -- a nominee of President George W. Bush who was confirmed 99-0 in June 2004- in Seattle halting parts of the executive action signed by President Donald Trump.

Trump’s order bars some immigrants and refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries for 90 days and additional 120 days.

The White House has promised to appeal the ruling "at the earliest possible time."

Following the judge’s order, the Homeland Security also suspended Trump’s ban and airlines also followed procedures to bring passengers to and fro in US.
