Supreme Court could rule on Trump's proposed travel ban before summer break

Supreme Court could rule on Trump's proposed travel ban before summer break

He said the one exception is if an immigrant from any one of the six Muslim-majority countries articulated by the president in the travel ban - Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - has a legal relationship with a person, school, business or other entity in the US, they will not be banned.

The action Monday is a victory for President Donald Trump in the biggest legal controversy of his young presidency.

The court said it would hear arguments on the legality of one of Trump's signature policies in his first months as president in the court's next term, which starts in October.

"Between today and when the Supreme Court rules, the president's travel ban will stay in effect", Napolitano explained.

Trump tells Democrats they need 'courage' to fix ObamaCare
Some conservatives think current plans don't go far enough; others say those plans will hurt numerous people they represent. Facing unanimous Democratic opposition, McConnell can afford to lose just two of the 52 GOP senators and still prevail.


The ban would apply to citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The administration has said the travel ban is needed to allow time to implement stronger vetting measures, although it has already rolled out some new requirements not blocked by courts, including additional questions for visa applicants.

A 120-ban on refugees also is being allowed to take effect on a limited basis. For people who want to come to the United States to work or study, "the relationship must be formal, documented and formed in the ordinary course, not for the goal of evading" the travel ban.

Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, said the government has shown it is likely to succeed on the merits of the case, and that it will suffer irreparable harm with any interference.

After it was blocked by the courts, Trump tried again in March with a revised version that didn't include Iraq and was meant to clarify problems of the first order that created uncertainty about the rights of dual citizens and holders of USA visas.

Examples of formal relationships include students accepted to U.S. universities and an employee who has accepted a job with a company in the USA, the court said. Opponents say the ban was an unlawful bar based on visitors' Muslim religion. It was blocked by federal judges before going into effect on March 16 as planned.

Both of the federal appeals courts that have considered the revised executive order have ruled against the administration - but for different reasons.

Trump has called his second executive order "watered down", and "politically correct".

Trump scrambles for GOP health votes; budget score looms
Democrats are expected to vote as a bloc against the bill, meaning it could be defeated with as few as three Republican votes. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price defended the GOP health care plan Sunday from Republicans opposing the bill.
