Trump Administration Asks Supreme Court to Restore Travel Ban

by Greg Stohr
June 1, 2017, 11:01 PM EDT

President Donald Trumpís administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to immediately reinstate his stalled travel ban, aiming to reverse a string of courtroom losses and setting up the biggest legal showdown of his young presidency.

The request puts a Trump initiative before the Supreme Court for the first time and brings the nine justices into a national drama over claims that the president is targeting Muslims and abusing his authority. The case will give the first indications of how Chief Justice John Robertsís court will approach one of the most controversial presidents in the nationís history.

Trump is asking the court to hear arguments on an expedited basis and to reinstate the executive order in the interim.

At issue is Trumpís executive order temporarily barring entry into the U.S. by people from six predominantly Muslim countries in an effort to protect the country from terrorists. The administration asked the court to let the ban take effect while the justices decide whether to review a lower court ruling that said the policy was "steeped in animus and directed at a single religious group."

6. These lawyers are complicit in hate

The lawyers arguing the case could resign now. Or submarine the arguments.

We know who Trump is. Now the question is who is going to stand up to him in the administration and Congress.

7. Has the scotus replied whether they'd take the case or not? My guess is they won't. I've heard

for many years that the SCOTUS doesn't want to get involved in political problems. They usually tell the requesting paarty to "Go back and work it out." I don't they'll touch it.

8. Isn't it moot?

The 100 day period is now up. Whatever they were going to do doing that 100 day period to improve screening procedures should now be complete anyway. They should go directly to implementing the improved screening procedures without further delay.

What, they haven't come up with the new screening procedures?....
