Supreme Court gives Trump more time to file travel ban briefs

Supreme Court gives Trump more time to file travel ban briefs

The government has already asked the high court to review a similar ruling last month from the federal appeals court in Richmond, Virginia. Hopefully, all of that will soon change.

"As has been noted numerous times, there was a provision in each Executive Order to make the ban permanent by Presidential decree", Modarres said.

The justices of the US Supreme Court are accustomed to being cordial in the face of conflict. But a party aggrieved by an adverse class certification decision also need not satisfy the strict standards for taking an interlocutory appeal; instead, under Rule 23 (f), a "court of appeal [] may permit an appeal from an order granting or denying class-action certification. if a petition for permission to appeal is filed with the circuit clerk within 14 days after the order is entered". In a March press call ASTA SVP Government and Industry Affairs Eben Peck said, "I think we're going to look at letting the dust from both bans settle a bit". "We welcome this ruling and believe it and the previous rulings in different courts outline a clear path that the Supreme Court should follow".

Since the DOJ initially petitioned for Supreme Court review on June 1, Trump has tweeted about the order, the courts, and his disdain for political correctness, confirming the claims of travel-ban challengers that the executive order is religiously motivated and violates constitutional guarantees to freedom of religion.

Eyup Yildirim of New Jersey and Sinan Narin of Virginia were arrested on assault charges on Wednesday, according to police. Two other men were arrested at the scene - one for aggravated assault and the other for assaulting a police officer.

The justices are considering the administration's request to reinstate its ban on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries. The 4th Circuit's ruling took that question head-on, agreeing that the ban officially disfavored Islam-as evidenced by Trump's campaign statements calling for a "total and complete shutdown" on Muslims entering the USA -and was thus unconstitutional.

Differences traditionally are put aside for a new justice's investiture, a short but formal and history-laden event that culminates in iconic photos of the chief justice and the new justice descending the Supreme Court's famous marble steps.

Hawaii, which challenged the ban and won in the appeals court, is permitted to file its own brief on June 20, meaning the court is unlikely to act on the emergency application until next week at the earliest. The 90-day period would be over, and the order would no longer be in effect. "I think we can all attest that these are very risky times and we need every available tool at our disposal to prevent terrorists from entering the United States".

"And yet again, these revisions underline that the one thing the president has consistently wanted throughout is a Muslim ban", he added. Only time will tell.
