Travel Ban Case on Fast Track at Supreme Court

Expectations are that the U.S. Supreme Court may decide soon whether to stay the injunctions blocking President Donald Trump’s travel ban. Meanwhile, the President has issued a Memorandum meant to amend and clarify the revised travel ban executive order.

The President declared that the 90-day travel ban and the 120-day ban on refugee admissions would not kick in until the injunctions were lifted. This is meant to ensure the bans remain “active” and to parry any legal argument before the Supreme Court that the case is moot (or soon will be moot) because the bans, which were meant to go in effect on March 16th, have already expired.

The White House also stated that when and if the injunctions are lifted or stayed, there would be a three-day (72 hour) grace period before the relevant provisions would go into effect. This is to “ensure an orderly and proper implementation of those provisions.”

Individuals from the six countries (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen) who could be affected and plan to travel soon should take particular note of the possibility of the three-day warning.
