US appeals court sets May hearing on revised Trump travel order

That same court declined to reinstate President Trump's original travel ban back in February.

A federal appeals court in San Francisco decided Monday that it will hold a hearing in May over an injunction issued by a federal judge in Honolulu against President Donald Trump's revised executive order on immigration.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the appeal in May.

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals previously upheld a Seattle judge's block of Trump's first travel order.

Freedom Caucus leader says group holding strong against Trump
Ryan repeated that "90%" of his caucus is for the health care measure, but would not commit to a timeline on holding another vote. Leaders for some of the Trump groups said they viewed backing the legislation as a problem for Congress, not the White House.

The government is appealing Watson's ruling that put an indefinite hold on Trump's executive order to suspend new visas for people in six Muslim-majority countries and halt the U.S. refugee program. The appeals court did not say on Monday which three judges would preside over the latest appeal.

The revised order removed restrictions on holders of visas and green cards but still targeted predominantly Muslim nations. It also states that a hearing scheduled for April 18 should be suspended, along with any other deadline, until the Department of Justice's appeal is answered.

Attorneys General from 16 states and the District of Columbia filed a brief on Friday with the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
