In response, President Donald Trump’s administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to immediately reinstate the Travel Ban.

 

This is the first time the new administration has bought a case to the Supreme Court. This case places the nine justices in the middle of a national drama over the claims that the President is targeting Muslims and abusing his Presidential authority.
