Supreme Court to hear Trump travel ban case

Supreme Court to hear Trump travel ban case

The court is due to hear arguments in April and will rule by the end of June.

The US Supreme Court will decide the legality of Donald Trump's so-called Muslim travel ban, which is widely seen as a test of his presidential powers.

The Supreme Court has never ruled on whether any of the three versions of the travel ban is legal.

A decision could take more than a year if the court takes up the case but declines to speed up resolution of it issuing a ruling in its current term. They say the travel ban has no precedent in U.

The conservative-tilting court last month rejected calls for a freeze on the ban, which targets visitors from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, allowing Trump to implement it while it was being challenged in lower courts.

"We have always known this case would ultimately be decided by the United States Supreme Court", said Attorney General Doug Chin.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented from the December ruling. The 63-year-old justice, who has type 1 diabetes, was able to go to work and is doing fine.

Ahead of FISA Vote, Trump Sows Confusion
It's the foreign intelligence surveillance act that was approved as a result of 9/11 created to help prevent terrorism. But the House voted Thursday to renew Section 702 for another six years in roughly its current form.

Hawaii, several individuals, and a Muslim group challenged the federal limits on travel from six predominantly Muslim nations. Trump tweaked the order after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit refused to reinstate the ban. The court agreed last June to take up the second version until it expired in the early fall.

Francisco noted that the latest travel ban was put in place "after a worldwide review by multiple government agencies" meant to determine whether foreign governments provide sufficient information that would allow the United States to properly screen aliens seeking entry from overseas.

"The courts below", Francisco wrote, "have overridden the president's judgments on sensitive matters of national security and foreign relations, and severely restricted the ability of this and future presidents to protect the nation".

In ruling against Trump on December 22, the 9th Circuit said the 1965 amendment to the Immigration and Nationality Act "eliminates nationality-based discrimination" as a basis for denying immigration visas. But both sides urged the Supreme Court to consider both the statutory and constitutional questions if it agreed to hear the case.

Lawyers for the challengers told the justices that Mr. Trump's own statements provided powerful evidence of anti-Muslim animus.

On Friday, Dec. 22, 2017, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the President violated federal law and exceeded his authority in issuing travel ban 3.0.

The administration is challenging a January 9 decision by San Francisco-based U.S. District Judge William Alsup, who ruled that DACA must remain in place while the litigation is resolved.
