The Supreme Court decided today that it plans to review the case over President Trump’s travel ban, which will allow certain parts of the ban to be put into action effective immediately. What exactly those parts will be are not yet disclosed.
The announcement came Monday, on the final day of the court’s term. The court will take up the case this coming fall in October.
Trump’s executive order, titled “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” was issued in March. It would ban for 90 days entry into the U.S. of people from six predominantly Muslim countries and suspend for 120 days acceptance into the U.S. of refugees from anywhere in the world.
Such an action requires five of the nine justices to agree to temporarily stay the lower-court injunctions so that the executive order can go into effect and four to vote to take up the case when the court convenes again in October.
The announcement comes on the heels of rumors that a key justice on the court will likely be retiring, which will position Trump to appoint a new judge to the position.
