Demonstrators at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport protest President Trump's travel ban last month.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments over President Trump's temporary travel ban at 5 p.m. CT. Attorneys on both sides of the case will make their arguments to a three-judge panel by telephone.

 

Lawyers for State Department will argue that national security is at risk and the ban on refugees and visa holders from seven majority-Muslim countries should be immediately reinstated. Lawyers for the states of Washington and Minnesota will argue that the order is discriminatory and violates the Constitution.
