Trump says travel ban ruling comes at 'dangerous time'


The Trump administration is asking the Supreme Court for additional time to file legal papers in response to a second federal appeals court that refused to lift a hold on President Donald Trump's travel ban.

The White House released a memorandum Wednesday declaring that the effective date of the president's executive order banning travelers from six Muslim-majority countries "is delayed or tolled" until all relevant court injunctions "are lifted or stayed".

He also is reiterating the Trump administration's argument that the ban isn't based on religion, but safety concerns.

The president approved the changes in a memo as the high court considers whether it will allow the long-stalled ban to take effect.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia also ruled against the travel ban May 25.

Indeed, the President recently confirmed his assessment that it is the "countries" that are inherently risky, rather than the 180 million individual nationals of those countries who are barred from entry under the President's "travel ban". Lithwick mentions that people sometimes defend Trump statements by saying that they should be taken "seriously but not literally".

The Supreme Court's new briefing schedule for the combined cases lets the government submit its final brief on June 21. It cited the Supreme Court's 2014 ruling in the McCutcheon case, which said the First Amendment "has its fullest and most urgent application precisely to the conduct of campaigns for political office".

CCP waded into one recent case, Susan B. Anthony List v. Driehaus decided by the Supreme Court in 2014, which ruled in favor of challengers to an OH law prohibiting false statements during a political campaign. "The true victims of this principle are voters, who rely on unfiltered campaign speech to evaluate candidates' fitness for office".
