Judges keep a very close eye on Trump

  • President Donald Trump signs a revised executive order for a U.S. travel ban on Monday leaving Iraq off the list of targeted countries at the Pentagon in Washington

Specifically, Trump is seeking review of recent Ninth and Fourth Circuit court opinions upholding injunctions on the enforcement of the travel ban arising out of district courts in Hawaii and Maryland, respectively.

The Trump administration is asking the Supreme Court for additional time to file legal papers in response to a second federal appeals court that refused to lift a hold on President Donald Trump's travel ban.

President Donald Trump once told opponents of his travel ban that he'd see them in court, and he's doing everything he can to keep that promise.

Federal judges in Maryland and Hawaii blocked Trump's 90-day ban on travelers from Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

According to Tuesday's briefing schedule, the parties need to submit their briefs regarding the stay and cert petitions by June 21.

Surprise: Texas Republicans love Trump and Democrats don't, new poll shows
The internet survey of 1,200 registered voters was conducted June 2 to 11 and has a margin of error of 2.83 percentage points. Republican voters clearly have a favorite in Abbott, with 83 percent approving his job performance .

In an added dramatic twist, Trump himself plans to go to the Supreme Court on Thursday for the investiture of Justice Neil Gorsuch, an administration official said. Gorsuch's confirmation by the U.S. Senate in April restored the court's 5-4 conservative majority. Press secretary Sean Spicer dismissed the ruling, and said the White House remained confident it would be vindicated by the Supreme Court.

Chair of the Committee on Migration for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Bishop Joe Vasquez of Austin said he was "heartened" by the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals' decision.

U.S. Chief Circuit Judge Roger Gregory wrote that the text of Trump's executive order, which was challenged in courts across the country for targeting members of a particular faith, "speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination". The Hawaii judge also blocked a 120-day ban on refugees entering the United States. "As the government says, there is no doubt that this executive order 'has been the subject of passionate political debate.' But whatever one's views, 'the precedent set by this case for the judiciary's proper role in reviewing the president's national security and immigration authority will transcend this debate, this order, and this constitutional moment'".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions vowed to press the Supreme Court to take up the issue. The second order was meant to overcome the legal issues posed by the original ban, but was blocked by judges before it could go into effect on March 16.
