Robart said the states showed that their case was likely to succeed.

This is not the end of the Muslim ban.

"Appellants' request for an immediate administrative stay pending full consideration of the emergency motion for a stay pending appeal is denied", the late-night order appeals court order stated.

Meanwhile, the Department of State has reversed the cancellations of tens of thousands of visas to nationals from the seven Muslim-majority countries affected by the executive order.

Trump then lashed out at the "so-called judge" James Robart, a George W. Bush appointee, as well as The New York Times. The White House immediately issued a statement vowing to fight this "outrageous order".

"The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country is ridiculous and will be overturned!" he concluded.

"There's no support for" the government argument that "we have to protect the USA from individual from these countries", Robart said in a ruling delivered from the bench.

However, the White House said the government would adhere to the court's ruling until the Justice Department intervenes.

The government said it expected to start admitting refugees again today.

The US President demanded that the Seattle judge's order to be stayed pending resolution of the appeal.

The Justice Department on Saturday moved to appeal a decision that temporarily halted enforcement of President Donald Trump's travel ban.

"Robart's ruling contravenes the considered judgment of Congress that the President should have the unreviewable authority to suspend the admission of any class of aliens."

The court order means if a person has a legal green card he or she should be admitted to the United States, no matter what country in which the person is a citizen.

The Republican continued: "Interesting that certain Middle-Eastern countries agree with the ban".
