A statement calling for a "complete and total shutdown" of Muslims entering the U.S. was apparently removed from President Donald Trump's official campaign website after a reporter asked about it at a press briefing on Monday. That call, which was still online earlier Monday, appeared to have been taken down by the afternoon hearing.
The administration appealed a March 15 ruling by Maryland-based federal judge Theodore Chuang that put the ban on hold just a day before it was due to go into effect.

"Alliance for Justice has serious concerns about Judge Thapar's fitness for elevation to a higher court, and urges senators and the public to closely scrutinize his record", the group said.
He added: "We've been very consistent since the first day of this administration on this".
Wall sought to portray what Trump has said since actually taking the oath of office and beginning to govern as more "ambiguous" than his campaign rhetoric, and worked hard to try to convince the judges that they had a duty to be more tolerant of what the head of an equal branch of government had said about actual policy. "Why does the president's website still explicitly call for "preventing Muslim immigration"?"
No ruling was expected on Monday and it was unclear when the court would rule.
"The Muslim and refugee ban is a clear example of politics of hate and xenophobia", said Marielena Hincapié, the executive director of the National Immigration Law Center.
The Fourth Circuit used to be much more conservative until President Barack Obama began stacking the court with left-leaning judges.
Judge Robert King referred to a page on Trump's website as evidence that he's never "repudiated what he said" about wanting to ban Muslims from traveling into the U.S.
Hollande Calls On French To Back Macron, Prevent Le Pen "Risk"
Le Pen mocked her opponent who "walks on a carpet of roses, with all the compliments from the press, in a kind of unanimity". Macron has already enlisted some 50 sitting Socialist lawmakers to his cause, as well as a number of centrist party grandees.
After his election, Trump swiftly signed an executive order banning individuals from seven Muslim-majority countries entering the country for 90 days.
Trump issued the March executive order after federal courts blocked an earlier version, issued on January 27 a week after he took office, that also had included Iraq among the nations targeted. Also, the USA refugee resettlement program would be suspended for 120 days, and the order sought to reduce the annual number of refugee admissions to 50,000 for fiscal year 2017, from the usual 110,000.
President Donald Trump is hoping that a federal appeals court will approve his revised travel ban that targets six Muslim-majority countries. The Virginia court on Monday was reviewing the Maryland judge's ruling, while an appeals court in San Francisco is set to hear the government's appeal of the Hawaii decision next week.
Trump has struggled in court as judges have halted his first travel ban and his attempt to block some federal funding to cities that fail to cooperate with immigration agents.
The administration argues that the court shouldn't question the president's national security decisions based on campaign promises. The other two were appointed in 1999. The three judges assigned all are Democratic appointees.
After the five judges are announced on Monday, the Trump administration will reportedly continue to periodically roll out even more conservative names until all of the vacancies are filled.
"Is the executive not entitled to some deference?" asked Judge Dennis W. Shedd.
"I don't know where it ends", said Judge Paul Niemeyer. Wynn asked in reference to some of Trump's comments. He noted that the attorney general and homeland security secretary have said in their judgment that the extreme vetting policy is needed.
"The question in this case is what is the objective of the order, whether it's legitimate or not", Mr. Jadwat said. He said Mr. Trump has shown animus toward Muslims that colors his actions. Gorsuch was on a list of potential candidates Trump released during his campaign. And the government is saying that the Justice Department - or the Justice Department is arguing that the president has enormous power when it comes to national security at the border.
The news led to an understandably emotional scene in the Houston locker room, but Beverley elected play in Sunday's Game 4 . They're guarding the rim. "But they were that intense, they were that focused and professional, and we were not".
To a man, the Rangers fully expect the Senators' battle level to be back on track Thursday, making for a more competitive contest. Its performance in Game 3 feels like something it can build on-especially against a Senators team that often struggles to score.
If we come together out there on the floor no matter what happens, as long as we come together, we can compete with anybody". In the past this might have unsettled the Raptors, but these are not the Raptors who cower at the sight of an early deficit.
Nearly eight years later he does and quite frankly was the leader to do the exact same thing in the House of Representatives. Later, after traveling to New York, Trump told reporters there could be changes to ensure passage by senators.
