How Muslim-Americans are responding to the Supreme Court's travel ban ruling

"In this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians, we must properly vet those coming into our country", Trump said. Picture taken on June 23, 2018.

Democrats are grasping at straws to try to stop Republicans from replacing retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy on the Supreme Court with a more reliable conservative vote. "I look forward to Wolf Blitzer in 2021, 'In the end this Supreme Court case will be decided by the swing vote, Justice Meat Loaf'". Braden added it wouldn't surprise him if one of Trump's picks did eventually rule that courts could step in to limit partisan gerrymandering.

"While liberals have been able to pick off a number of crucial victories in years past on hotly contested matters, they will nearly always fall short in the future without Justice Kennedy on the bench now". The court overruled a pair of decades-old decisions that states said cost them billions of dollars in lost revenue annually.

The travel ban upheld by the Supreme Court was the third attempt by the administration following more than a year and a half worth of legal battles with civil rights groups and federal courts who had succeeded in either reversing or rolling back provisions in the previous bans.

Ruth Greenwood, a lawyer at Campaign Legal Center representing plaintiffs challenging partisan gerrymandered maps in Wisconsin and North Carolina, said challengers would continue to make their case in court.

With the news that conservative Justice Anthony Kennedy is to retire, a huge opportunity has landed in Donald Trump's lap. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell invoked the nuclear option, lowering the threshold from the super majority of 60 votes that is normally required for confirmation to a simple majority. "If we get a justice even more reliably conservative than Justice Kennedy, I'd expect that to be an even more extreme trend".

McConnell refused to consider Garland because it was a presidential election year. "More likely than not, they are likely to be more conservative on the issues in the sense of moving things from the political arena to the judicial arena; I think as a threshold matter".

His retirement is a tremendous blow to the Left, especially after Senate Democrats' failure to filibuster the president's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Sen.

Leonard Leo, an outside advisor to Trump on judicial nominations who is on leave from his post at the Federalist Society, said Trump's list of potential nominees for this vacancy includes numerous very best judges in America.

The Supreme Court ruled in favor on Trump's travel ban on Tuesday.

If Republicans bent to this logic, the midterms would become, in part, a referendum on the Supreme Court, probably to an unprecedented extent given the gravity of this particular appointment.

"It truly saddens me that this court doesn't check this president's worst impulses", said Karol Brown, a Bellevue-based immigration attorney.

While Sotomayor's argument may not have won today, her opinion still paints a clear picture of how Trump's own tweets can be used to undermine his administration's goals.
