The Supreme Court on Monday granted President Donald Trump's request that his revised travel ban be enforced fully while legal challenges to it proceed in lower courts.
The ban, now in its third iteration, currently covers travel from eight countries with varying restrictions ranging from the full suspension of both immigrant and non-immigrant entry, to restrictions on the uses of certain visas.
The ban applies to travelers from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad. The first version of the ban encountered intense opposition and numerous successful legal challenges by critics of the administration who felt the first ban unfairly targeted majority-Muslim countries.
It was the latest version of the "Muslim ban" that had previously targeted six Muslim-majority countries, but had been restricted by the US Supreme Court.
"President Trump's anti-Muslim prejudice is no secret-he has repeatedly confirmed it, including just last week on Twitter".
"The Constitution and acts of Congress confer on the President broad authority to prevent aliens overseas from entering this country when he deems it in the nation's interest", Solicitor General Noel Francisco argued in court papers.
In the Hawaii case, a district court judge blocked the ban from going into effect except as it pertains to Venezuela and North Korea. They say that was reinforced most recently by Trump's retweets of anti-Muslim videos. Lower courts had said people from those nations with a claim of a "bona fide" relationship with someone in the United States could not be kept out of the country.
If the Supreme Court decides to again hear the case after the appeals courts issue rulings, the order will remain in effect until a decision is made, the justices ruled.
"Thanks! See you in court next week", wrote Katyal. Also unaffected are refugees. The Supreme Court urged the appeals courts to issue swift rulings.
