Trump administration requests Supreme Court to reinstate Muslim-nation travel ban

The Administration has filed emergency applications with the 9 high court justices seeking to block 2 different lower court rulings that went against the 6th of March order barring entry for people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days while the United States government implements stricter Visa screening some of which has already been put in place.

The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court Thursday to break its losing streak in lower courts and revive President Trump's travel ban on immigrants from six predominantly Muslim nations.

Trump Administration has requested from the US Supreme Court to allow the entering into force of his "Muslim travel ban" executive order as the justices consider whether to hear the appeal.

IAG shares fall as BA schedules recover from IT failure
The airline blamed a power supply issue for the outage but said there was no sign that it had been subject to a cyber-attack. A global IT glitch that leaves thousands of angry passengers stranded does not come cheap.

"Trump's recent speech to Middle East leaders in Saudi Arabia provides more evidence that Trump's policy was not motivated by anti-Muslim prejudice because the president explicitly said the fight against terrorism "'is not a battle between different faiths, '" Wall wrote.

"It's an interesting procedural move, but the fact that it's taken this long may undermine, at least to some extent, the Trump administration's core argument that the entry ban, which has never gone into full effect, is essential to protect our national security", Vladeck said. The Justice Department could have waited for the 9 Circuit's decision to come down, then asked the court to review both the 9 and 4 Circuit's rulings together. The Supreme Court is not required to hear the case but is likely to due to its importance and the fact that the request is being made by the USA government. The Fourth Circuit had found that the campaign comments created "a compelling case that (the executive order's) primary goal is religious" in upholding an earlier freeze on the ban, a decision that many legal experts had expected to send the case to the Supreme Court.

If five votes out of nine rule in favor of the ban, it will be put into effect immediately, Reuters reported. A three-judge panel of that court heard the case last month, but has not yet ruled.

Omar Jadwat, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union, which represents people and groups challenging the ban, said the Supreme Court should let the appeals court decision stand.

The case marks the President's first test of his travel ban in the nation's highest court.

President Donald Trump signs an executive order in the Oval Office. "We don't know whether they see Trump as an existential threat or [believe] the lower courts are out of line", he said. That is because if the court grants the request, the ban's 90-day term will have expired by the time the court decides the legal fate of the proposal.

On May 25 the 4th USA circuit court of appeals in Richmond, Virginia upheld a Maryland judge's ruling blocking the order. Rather than wait for that decision, the Justice Department asked that a federal district court's earlier decision striking down the ban be blocked so that it can go into effect. It "suspends for 90 days the entry of foreign nationals from six countries that sponsor or shelter terrorism (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen)", the White House says in its Supreme Court filing. It was later clarified by Customs and Border Patrol that they would be treated on a case by case basis, depending on whether they possess a passport of a country that is not banned by the executive order. And Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who are likely to be the deciding votes, may not be inclined to put Trump's order into effect. Another of the court's conservatives, Neil Gorsuch, was appointed by Trump this year.
