A ruling on Trump's original ban was upheld by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after a judge in the city of Seattle blocked it.
A judge is putting Hawaii's lawsuit challenging the Trump administration's revised travel ban on hold while an appeal is pending.
The attorney generals criticizing the travel ban are from: Virginia, Maryland, California, Oregon, Connecticut, New York, Delaware, North Carolina, Illinois, Rhode Island, Iowa, Vermont, Maine, Washington, Massachusetts, New Mexico and the District of Columbia.
A three-judge panel of the appeals court will hold a hearing next month, but the court has not set a date or specified if the same panel that issued the February ruling will hear this appeal.
In its amended lawsuit, the state of Hawaii had argued that the new executive order on travel ban doesn't change much and violates the right to freedom of religion.

Michael McCaul, Bill Flores, Lama Smith, Roger Williams, John Carter and Blake Farenthold all voted for the repeal . One possible way to protect online activity is to opt for a virtual private network or VPN.
However, the appeals court is also considering skipping that step.
Iowa has joined 15 other states in opposing the latest version of President Trump's travel ban.
The revised order removed restrictions on holders of visas and green cards but still targeted predominantly Muslim nations.
The government wants to suspend upcoming deadlines in the case, including a scheduling hearing set for April 18.
There has not yet been a response from Hawaii's State Attorney General's office on the request.
