Catholic bishops welcome latest setback for Trump's travel ban

The Latest: Sessions says travel ban needed for security

The president's travel ban, first issued in January, and a revised order from March have been in legal limbo after federal judges put them on hold and appeals courts have upheld those rulings. Hopefully, all of that will soon change.

Today's unanimous ruling noted, "The President's authority is subject to certain statutory and constitutional restraints", but that Trump's revised executive order "exceeded the scope of the authority delegated to him by Congress".

The judges pointed to a June 6 tweet by Trump saying the order was aimed at "dangerous countries".

The justices of the US Supreme Court are accustomed to being cordial in the face of conflict.

But if the conservative majority on the Supreme Court is inclined to stay within the "four corners" of the executive order's text and not broadly consider the motivation behind it, the 9th Circuit shows it still can not be upheld. The 4th Circuit found the policy unconstitutional on that basis.

In March, U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii blocked the new version from taking effect, citing what he called "significant and unrebutted evidence of religious animus" in Trump's campaign statements.

Tim Armstrong , former CEO of AOL, is now CEO of Oath , which is part of Verizon's Media and Telematics organization. Oath comprises more than 50 media and technology brands including TechCrunch, HuffPost, Tumblr , Engadget and flickr.

On June 13, following the ruling from the 9 Circuit, the Supreme Court agreed to a request from Acting U.S. Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall for more time to respond and make its case for reinstating the travel ban.

A USA appeals court recently upheld a decision that blocked the executive order signed by President Trump.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday set a new briefing schedule, meaning the highest court in the judicial branch in the coming days will decide whether to lift the temporary lower court injunction and whether to hear the Trump administration's appeal against the injunction that blocked the order's implementation.

Going forward, if either side wishes for appellate review of a class certification decision, it will have to seek permission from the court of appeal under Rule 23 (f). The 90-day period would be over, and the order would no longer be in effect. By lifting the part of Judge Watson's injunction that barred the review of internal vetting procedures, the 9 Circuit may have ensured that the case will be moot by the time it is argued, no matter how the 90 days are calculated.

Indeed, the President recently confirmed his assessment that it is the "countries" that are inherently unsafe, rather than the 180 million individual nationals of those countries who are barred from entry under the President's "travel ban". The GBTA recently forecast a $1.3 billion loss in overall travel-related expenditures in the USA this year due to the ban, as well as other policies like the proposed expanded laptop ban and other political factors like Brexit.
