The US Department of Justice has asked a court to dismiss its own appeal on the ruling that blocked Donald Trump's old travel ban. The US president has since signed a new measure, which also might face legal challenges.

The US officials filed the motion to end the appeal before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday, after the White House issued a new version of the measure.

The original ban, which came into effect immediately after President Trump signed it in late January, halted all refugee admissions and temporarily banned entry to all travelers holding passports of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. Numerous activists and politicians slammed the ban as discriminatory against Muslims. The US states of Washington and Minnesota sued to stop the ban, claiming it was unconstitutional, and a federal judge in Seattle suspended it until the final decision could be made.

Responding to the suspension, the US Justice Department appealed to the 9th Circuit Court.
