White House changes date of travel ban amid Supreme Court review

President Donald Trump amended his embattled travel ban to address arguments being made at the U.S. Supreme Court that it would expire Wednesday under its original wording.

Immigration activists, including members of the DC Justice for Muslims Coalition, rally against the Trump administration's new ban against travelers from six Muslim-majority nations, outside of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection headquarters in Washington, U.S., March 7, 2017.

The ruling given on Monday against the travel ban was yet another block against Trump's efforts to prohibit entry of citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days while the USA government reviews their screening procedures.

President Donald Trump's own tweet regarding his "travel ban" has enabled the court of appeal to obstruct the controversial plan. Theoretically, the Supreme Court could interpret the clock as having started when the administration was allowed to begin developing new visa procedures for citizens of those countries. The nonprofit group also has challenged other restrictions on campaigns, including state rules seeking to outlaw false statements by candidates.

He's also struggled with giving up the long ball, having already allowed 17 homers this season after allowing 22 previous year . Chris Tillman allowed nine runs, including three home runs, over 1 1/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

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 Justice Department has appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to review these decisions and make a final ruling, but the possibility exists that even if the Supreme Court agrees to hear this appeal, the timing of such a decision will render it moot.

The main concern before the Supreme Court is whether the ban breaches the US Constitution's interdictions on the basis of the religious discrimination. The case similarly found that a 120-day ban on admitting refugees also violated the Immigration and Naturalization Act without relying on the Frist Amendment's Establishment Clause to do so.

Indeed, the President recently confirmed his assessment that it is the "countries" that are inherently risky, rather than the 180 million individual nationals of those countries who are barred from entry under the President's "travel ban". The court at some point questioned the authenticity of the travel ban. The Supreme Court is weighing emergency applications in both cases, but is likely to act on them together. In a March press call ASTA SVP Government and Industry Affairs Eben Peck said, "I think we're going to look at letting the dust from both bans settle a bit".
