posted on April 23, 2018

The Washington Post’s Robert Barnes reports that on Wednesday the Supreme Court will consider the Trump administration’s travel ban that bars entry for nationals from a group of majority-Muslim countries. Barnes writes, “The first version of the ban was issued just a week after Trump took office, and lower courts have found that it and each reformulated version since exceeded the authority granted by Congress and was motivated by Trump’s prejudice — animus, as courts like to say — toward Muslims.” He adds, “But, similar to a debate that has consumed Washington for the past 15 months, a major issue for the court is separating ‘the president’ from ‘this president.’”
