The DOJ had filed an official appeal on Saturday night over a federal court ruling issued late Friday in Washington state by US District Court Judge James Robart. It was Robart’s ruling, which included a temporary restraining order, that led both the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security on Saturday morning to halt their enforcement of the ban.
As CNN reports:

Since news arrived Saturday that the restrictions were lifted and airlines were told they could once again allow travelers from the targeted countries with proper documents to board planes to the U.S., those who had been left in limbo—many separated from families, employment opportunities, or school—were reportedly moving fast to make arrangements.

Meanwhile, immigration experts and refugeee advocates, celebrated the court’s ability to push back against the ban they argue is unconstitutional.
