Supreme Court to rule on Trump travel ban

Supreme Court to rule on Trump travel ban

This was done both to give Congress an opportunity to act on this issue and in light of ongoing litigation in which the injunction against DAPA had already been affirmed by the Supreme Court.

Judge William Alsup of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ruled January 9 that the administration must continue the DACA program, which provides legal status to 700,000 illegal aliens who arrived in the country as children.

"The district court has entered a nationwide injunction that requires DHS to keep in place a policy of non-enforcement that no one contends is required by federal law and that DHS has determined is, in fact, unlawful and should be discontinued", the Justice Department petition states.

Tuesday afternoon, the Department of Justice announced an appeal to Aslup's decision.

That same day, President Donald Trump met with lawmakers to discuss the creation of a clean DREAM Act that would allow DACA recipients and undocumented immigrants, also known as Dreamers, a path to citizenship without the attachment of Trump's border wall funding or the end to the USA visa lottery program.

"We have always known this case would ultimately be decided by the United States Supreme Court".

The Justice Department took that step today.

Alsup's ruling came during negotiations between Trump and congressional leaders over immigration policy.

Solicitor General Noel Francisco said in a court filing "time is of the essence" and asked the high court to rule on the case before its current term ends in June.

Trump signed the latest ban on September 24 after what Francisco called an "extensive, worldwide review" to determine which foreign governments provide information required by the United States to vet those seeking entry. That law also prohibits discrimination on the basis of nationality.

"The immigration laws do not grant the President this power", Katyal said. It also affects two non-Muslim countries: blocking travelers from North Korea and some Venezuelan government officials and their families.

Although lower courts have ruled against Trump over this three travel bans, the Supreme Court has given him a friendlier reception. Certain people from each targeted country can apply for a visa for tourism, business or education purposes, and any applicant can ask for an individual waiver.

A federal appeals court in San Francisco - the Ninth Circuit - struck down the travel ban last month.

Like earlier versions of the travel order, this one has become hung up in legal fights in the courts, though the Supreme Court ruled in December that the Trump Administration could enforce the ban while appeals are underway.
