Justices Speed Up President Trump’s Immigration Appeal

On Monday, January 8, the Supreme Court said it will look at the Trump administration’s new appeal that seeks to defend the President’s third immigration order in a private conference on January 19, 2018. On January 5, 2018, the Government in Hawaii v. Trump (9th Cir.) filed a petition with the Supreme Court asking the Court to review the Ninth Circuit’s December 22 ruling on the President’s September Proclamation which superseded the President’s previous immigration orders and barred entry from North Korea, Venezuela, and Chad in addition to entry from the five listed countries.
