The federal appeals court that upheld a lower court’s restraining order on President Trump’s travel ban granted a Justice Department request Thursday to stay proceedings in the case until the president issues a replacement executive order next week.

During a Thursday afternoon press conference, Trump mentioned that he would unveil a new executive action “tailored” to address judicial concerns that haulted the travel ban.

“We are issuing a new executive action next week that will comprehensively protect our country,” Trump said.

Earlier this month, U.S. District Judge James Robart ruled Friday in favor of a lawsuit by Washington state and Minnesota to freeze Trump’s executive order that temporarily blocks refugees and citizens from seven countries with a high terror risk. A three-member panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco then unananymously rejected the Trump administration’s request to reinstate the travel ban.

An appeals court judge asked for a second hearing on the ruling last week, this time with the full appeals court.

Both sides in the case Washington v. Trump regarding the immigration ban filed briefs Thursday on whether the case should be reviewed by the full 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
