travel ban put on hold; trump to appeal to supreme court

trump's lawyers urge supreme court to bring back his revised travel ban


president trump’s lawyers asked the supreme court late thursday to revive his temporary ban on foreigners arriving from six majority-muslim nations, setting the stage for a potentially far-reaching ruling on the president’s power to control immigration.at issue is whether trump’s revised travel order is a legitimate effort to protect the nation from terrorism or a thinly veiled scheme to screen out muslims.to resolve that question, the supreme court would have to decide whether the president has the final word on the rules for admitting foreigner visitors, immigrants and refugees.in a lengthy appeal filed thursday evening, justice department lawyers asked the high court for an emergency order that revives the travel ban, and they urged the justices to review and reverse last week’s ruling

supreme court travel ban ruling changes little for illinois refugees


refugees in illinois who are hoping to reunite with loved ones still overseas felt a small bit of relief monday when the supreme court announced that only foreigners who have no family, business or other ties could be denied entry into the u.s. as part of president donald trump's revised travel ban.while advocates still worry that foreigners fleeing war-torn regions will not meet the court's criteria or will have to jump through more hoops to show that they do, some say the justices actually carved out a very narrow restriction that will have a minimal impact when it goes into effect thursday, 72 hours after the ruling.trump's revised executive order, issued in march, limited travel from six mostly muslim countries for 90 days and suspended the nation's refugee program for 120 days. two fe
