On Tuesday evening, the Federal Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear from both sides of the aisle in regards to President Donald Trump’s temporary ban on immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries.
Both sides of the argument will take their case to San Francisco’s 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Taking place via teleconference at 6:00 p.m. EST Tuesday, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson and attorneys for Trump will attempt to convince a judge to either do away with or maintain the current suspension of the president’s executive order blocking citizens from seven terror-related countries from entering the United States.
The president’s lawyers insist that states do not have the legal prowess to challenge the inherited powers the Constitution gives the president in regards to immigration.
As for Ferguson, Washington’s highest ranking lawyer is expected to argue key points of Trump’s legislation in an attempt to erase the temporary travel ban. Ferguson believes the ban is a detriment to state residents with respective economic impact.
Tuesday’s hearing is a continuation of Trump’s request for an emergency stay on Sunday. Though denied, Trump’s team will receive a more legitimized timeframe tomorrow night on the ban’s current suspension.
