President Donald Trump took executive action on curbing access visas and limiting refugees coming to the US. The executive action is called "Protection of the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the United States," which institutes what the President has called "extreme vetting" of immigrants.

A US appeals court has posed tough questions at those challenging and defending President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban.

The order banned entry for all refugees and visitors from seven mainly Muslim nations, until it was halted last week.

According to BBC News, the three-judge panel raised questions over the limits on the president’s power and Mr. Trump’s evidence to link the seven countries to terrorism.

But it also asked whether the measure could be considered anti-Muslim.

A decision from the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals, in San Francisco, is expected later this week. Whatever it decides, the case will probably end up in the Supreme Court.
