US president Donald Trump’s administration has appealed a federal judge’s order that blocked the US president’s ban on travellers from seven Muslim-majority nations.

The justice department appeal comes one day after a US district judge filed a nationwide order halting the ban’s implementation.

The travel restrictions, which went into effect a week ago, have wreaked havoc at airports across America, sparked numerous protests and left countless people hoping to reach the United States in limbo.

Trump took to his Twitter handle to oppose the decision made by the judge on the immigration ban.

He also tweeted: “What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into US?”

The department of homeland security has reverted to standard, previous procedure in admitting people from the affected countries.

The department of justice declined to comment on the appeal “beyond the filing at this time,” in an email to AFP.
