Scotus To Review Travel Restriction This Week

The Supreme Court is expected to issue its decision on the president’s travel restriction this week, sparking the interest of people in Washington and around the world.
The court begins winding down its nine month term this week and will issue several rulings before taking a break.
Arguments for the travel guidelines were heard on April 25, with the conservative majority signaling support for the president’s policy.
The current restriction prohibits entry by most people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.
The Justices suggested the question surrounding the controversy involves the extent of the executive’s presidential powers.
“But what I see the president doing here is saying I’m going to add more to the limits that Congress said and to what Congress said was enough where does the president get the authority to do more than what Congress has already said is adequate,” said Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Lower courts have blocked the restriction over those constitutional concerns.
The high court allowed it to go into effect on December 4, while the official decision awaits.
