Trump’s Muslim Travel Ban Makes Another Trip To High Court

September 11, 2017

This is going to be the most important court case of the fall calendar.

“The Trump administration is returning to the Supreme Court in an effort to overturn lower court rulings crimping the application of President Donald Trump’s travel ban executive order. Justice Department lawyers asked the high court Monday to allow authorities to keep up a block on many refugees covered by Trump’s ban. However, the administration threw in the towel for now on efforts to insist that grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins of U.S. citizens should be covered by the ban despite the Supreme Court ordering an exemption for close family members. …

“The dispute taken to the justices Monday addresses how much of the travel ban can be enforced until the Supreme Court rules on the broader issues. The justices are scheduled to hear arguments Oct. 10 on a pair of cases related to the ban.”
