Washington state AG in court again over Trump executive order

Oral arguments are set for Tuesday afternoon.

Attorney General Bob Ferguson will present Washington’s case against the Trump administration’s executive order Tuesday at 3 p.m. The order left travelers, immigrants and refugees in limbo for about a week.

The judge on the case issued a temporary restraining order on the ban, allowing travelers to come into the U.S. as normal.

According to an AG press release:

“The Temporary Restraining Order will remain in place until U.S. District Court Senior Judge James L. Robart considers the Attorney General’s lawsuit challenging key provisions of the President’s order as illegal and unconstitutional. If Ferguson prevails, the Executive Order would be permanently invalidated nationwide.”

Arguments will be live-streamed on the 9th Circuit Court website.
