The Supreme Court has given the state of Hawaii until Tuesday at noon to Respond to the Trump’s administration’s appeal to block the flip flop ruling of U.S. District Judge Derrick K. Watson in Hawaii, which again disrupts President Trump’s so-called travel ban.
From the Supreme Court’s docket for Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, et al., v. Hawaii, et al.:
As we reported previously, Judge Watson flipped flopped on this issue in the course of one week.Jul 15 2017 Motion for clarification filed by petitioners Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, et al.
Jul 15 2017 Response to motion for clarification due on or before 12 p.m., Tuesday, July 18, 2017.
Judge Watson’s ill-considered ruling vastly expanded the number refugees and visitors from the six suspect countries targeted in President Donald J. Trump’s January 27, 2017 Executive Order Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States and the President’s March 6, 2017-revised version of the order, which narrowed the scope of his original order, that would be allowed into the country.
Read the Justice Department’s Supreme Court filing. It cites a great deal of statutory and case law that supports the new guidelines issued by the State Department to implement the Supreme Court June 26, 2017 ruling. Those guidelines explain which refugees and visitors from the six suspect countries.
