Hoping His Supreme Court Appointment Works for Him

Donald Trump’s administration has asked the US supreme court to allow his ban on travelers from six Muslim-majority nations to come into effect after it was blocked by lower courts that deemed it discriminatory.

The administration filed two emergency applications with the nine justices seeking to block two different lower court rulings that went against Trump’s 6 March order barring entry for people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days while the US government implements stricter visa screening.

On May 25 the 4th US circuit court of appeals in Richmond, Virginia upheld a Maryland judge’s ruling blocking the order. The administration also filed a separate appeal in that case.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
