A USA appeals court recently upheld a decision that blocked the executive order signed by President Trump.
The high court also is being asked to uphold the constitutionality of the Trump travel policy, which lower courts have blocked saying it shows anti-Muslim prejudice.
For the first time since he was elected, President Donald Trump is set to attend the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday, presenting a potentially awkward moment as the court weighs what to do about his contentious executive order that attempts to restrict U.S. entry by people from six Muslim-majority countries.
The executive order provisions that the Administration wants to put into effect are a 90-day suspension of entry into the US of foreign nationals from six Mideast nations, and a 120-day suspension of entry of any refugees from anywhere in the world.
Under the amendment, the 90-day ban won't start until court orders now blocking it are lifted.
Trump to announce plan to stop cash flow to Cuban military The report of al-Baghdadi's death comes as the Islamic State suffers major setbacks in which it has lost wide swaths of territory. Russian state media reports Al-Baghdadi may have been killed in the May 28 airstrike near the Syrian city of Raqqa.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday set a new briefing schedule, meaning the highest court in the judicial branch in the coming days will decide whether to lift the temporary lower court injunction and whether to hear the Trump administration's appeal against the injunction that blocked the order's implementation. Gorsuch's confirmation by the U.S. Senate in April restored the court's 5-4 conservative majority.
ABC News contributor Kate Shaw said Wednesday's memorandum "clarifies and amends the executive order, effectively neutralizing one of the plaintiffs' key arguments against both a stay and cert - that the order expired" on Wednesday.
Trump's visit to the court would be his first since he became president on January 20 and would put him face-to-face with the nine justices as they consider the fate of his travel ban unless the court acts before then. They are also considering a separate case, from Maryland, that was decided in May by a different appeals court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. The injunctions blocking the ban were upheld on appeal. The Hawaii judge also blocked a 120-day ban on refugees entering the United States.
