WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court will hear a challenge to the Trump administration’s latest Muslim ban. That case stems from a U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruling against the ban. The American Civil Liberties Union and partner organizations are challenging the ban and awaiting a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, had this reaction to today’s Supreme Court news:

“Every version of the ban has been found unconstitutional, illegal, or both by federal trial and appellate courts. The Supreme Court can and should put a definitive end to President Trump’s attempt to undermine the constitutional guarantee of religious equality and the basic principles of our immigration laws, including their prohibition of national origin discrimination.”
