Trump Travel Ban is Headed to the Supreme Court

Last night, the Trump Administration asked the Supreme Court to let the travel ban, which would block people from six Muslim-majority countries from traveling to America, take effect. This appeal of the Fourth Circuit ruling that blocked the ban was almost sure to end up in front of the Supreme Court, and now that the more conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch is confirmed, the White House may be optimistic.

The Justice Department argues that “the President is not required to admit people from countries that sponsor or shelter terrorism, until he determines that they can be properly vetted and do not pose a security risk to the United States.” Organizations like the ACLU immediately announced they are ready to fight the ban.
