US Supreme Court to take up case on Trump's latest travel ban

The US Supreme Court has agreed to decide the legality of President Donald Trump's latest travel ban, which targets people from six Muslim-majority countries.

The court likely will hear arguments in April and issue a ruling by the term's end in late June.

DACA has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the USA illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas. The court put that order on hold, however, in deference to the Supreme Court. That means the program will remain in effect until the Supreme Court resolves the case.

The move effectively overturned a compromise in place since June, when the court said travelers with connections to the United States could continue to travel here notwithstanding restrictions in an earlier version of the ban.

The original order issued last January barred people from seven majority-Muslim countries - Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya - from entering the USA for 90 days.

The current executive order is actually the third version of the ban after the first was dropped and replace by a second version in March previous year.

"The courts below", Mr. Francisco wrote, "have overridden the president's judgments on sensitive matters of national security and foreign relations, and severely restricted the ability of this and future presidents to protect the nation".

They prevailed before a US District Court in Hawaii and before a three-judge panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. It also got rid of language that would give priority to religious minorities.

The same appeals courts that are evaluating the current policy agreed with the challengers.

On Friday, Dec. 22, 2017, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the President violated federal law and exceeded his authority in issuing travel ban 3.0.

Julian Assange Gets Ecuador Citizenship After 5 Years of Living in Embassy
An FCO spokesman said: 'The government of Ecuador recently requested diplomatic status for Mr Assange here in the UK. The WikiLeaks chief believes that the U.S. government is seeking his extradition and prosecution.

The Supreme Court allowed the ban to take partial effect, but said those with a claim of a "bona fide" relationship with someone in the United States could not be kept out of the country.

The administration is challenging a January 9 decision by San Francisco-based U.S. District Judge William Alsup, who ruled that DACA must remain in place while the litigation is resolved.

A third version would be permanent and the Associated Press (AP) said the White House had argued it was the product of a thorough review by several agencies.

Solicitor General Noel Francisco said in court papers that the policy is well within the president's "broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens outside the United States when he deems it in the Nation's interest".

The appeals court based its ruling on immigration statutes, not the Constitution's prohibition of religious discrimination.
