The new US president is set to get into the Oval Office.
The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Massachusetts is expected to hear oral arguments on Jan. 2 on whether the Trump administration can order a new federal appeals court to issue a stay pending an emergency ruling from the US Supreme Court that the president cannot ban Muslims from entering the country.
If the appeals court rules in favor of the administration, it would mean the new administration could take over a key Supreme Court seat, but the court could not immediately decide whether to stay that decision.
The Supreme Court has declined to issue an emergency stay in the case of the Trump travel ban, a case that the Trump team had sought to use to block the order.
But the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court in Boston has issued an emergency order blocking the ban in the name of protecting the rights of Americans to travel and work, and the administration appealed that decision, arguing that it was preempted by the law of the state in which it was issued.
“The court’s decision to uphold the president’s temporary restraining order, even while considering its constitutionality, sends a strong message that the federal courts are going to act with caution and care to protect the rights and interests of the American people,” the administration’s lawyers wrote in their brief filed in the 3.2-million-page 3rd federal appeals case.
In the brief, the Trump lawyers said the court had “overstepped its constitutional authority” to grant an emergency motion to stay the 3,000-page temporary restraining orders.

In his brief, Judge William Alsup said he had “no intention of staying” the temporary restraining motion in this case, saying the court was not obligated to take the President’s arguments into account in making its decision.
The appeals court also rejected the administration argument that the injunction against the ban should be stayed, noting that the court did not find that the “temporary restraining order was a ‘lawful exercise’ of the President” and did not rule on the question of whether the injunction could be challenged in federal court.
