Supreme Court Hears Oral Arguments On Trump Travel Ban

The battle over President Trump’s travel ban on immigrants from a handful of Muslim countries reached its final phase Wednesday as the case made its way all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The justices heard so-called “oral arguments” where lawyers from both sides presented their evidence for and against the president’s executive order imposing the ban. The justices did not issue a decision yesterday, but it appears that the court will likely allow this travel ban to go into effect. We break down these oral arguments with Eugene Kontorovich. He specializes in constitutional law, federal courts and public international law.
