Justices to hear challenge to travel ban

Justices to hear challenge to travel ban

That constitutional question was added as the Justices also agreed to review whether the Trump order issued in September is illegal under federal immigration laws or federal procedural rules.

Under DACA, almost 800,000 young migrants who came to this country as children have received work permits and protection from deportation. This will be an important day for justice and the rule of law.

The justices said on Friday that they plan to hear arguments in April and issue a final ruling by late June, CNN reported.

A previous version of the travel ban was found by multiple courts to violate the Establishment Clause, because it focused exclusively on Muslim-majority countries and because it seemed to codify proposals made by then-candidate Trump to bar Muslims from entering the United States.

The legal fight involves the third version of a contentious policy Trump first sought to implement a week after taking office in January 2017.

The latest ban was introduced on September 24 after what Francisco called an "extensive, worldwide review" to determine which foreign governments provide information required by the United States to vet those seeking entry.

In what could prove decisive in a legal battle that has roiled the first year of the Trump administration, the high court will rule on whether the president exceeded his powers and engaged in religious discrimination in the third rendering of the ban.

"The immigration laws do not grant the president this power: Congress has delegated him only a measure of its authority to exclude harmful aliens or respond to exigencies, and it has expressly prohibited discrimination based on nationality". The countries on the list are those that do not share that information or present "other heightened risk factors", Francisco said.

Describing it as a "rare step", the Department of Justice announced Tuesday that it will ask the Supreme Court to allow the Trump administration to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the Obama-era policy that allows undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children to remain in the country. Congress said at the time it wanted to end the discriminatory system of national quotas.

The nation's highest court decided in early December to let the order take effect in full while it worked its way through two appeals courts. Pro-immigration groups that have sued to stop the order say it is discriminatory and amounts to a ban on Muslims. It did not decide whether the ban violated the Constitution.

They prevailed before a U.S. District Court in Hawaii and before a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.
