The travel ban, the latest in a string of executive orders signed by President Donald Trump, has already resulted in a flurry of lawsuits filed by local officials across the country.
The administration said it plans to seek to have the court dismiss the lawsuit and that it would allow those who are still in the country to continue to travel and work.
Here are some of the key questions about the new ban: What is the ban?
The new order bans all refugees, citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the U.S. for 90 days.
It also suspends the admission of refugees from Syria indefinitely.
The order does not contain an explicit reference to Muslims or religion, but the Trump administration has said it’s aimed at “disloyalty to our country” and to preventing “radical Islamic terrorism.”
Who are the refugees?
The order lists several groups: immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iraq, Syria, Somalia and Sudan.
It says that the new order is not intended to prevent refugees from entering a country or country from entering an already existing refugee program, but that it will be a burden on local governments that must prioritize their own refugee programs.
Why is it important for the courts to hear the lawsuit?
The president has long called the refugee resettlement program a “big, fat sham” and has said that he has no desire to create an environment where people from those countries come to the U, but he has given the administration the power to do so.
The Trump administration’s latest executive order, issued late Monday, sets forth a new set of rules that it says will help it prioritize refugee admissions based on local needs and ensure the safety of Americans and visitors to the country from those nations.
The new rules, which have not been made public, were expected to be in place in the next few weeks.
The U.N. refugee agency said Monday it is reviewing the order and expects it to be implemented in due course.
What are the options for individuals and groups affected by the ban or who have already been affected?
Many of the people affected by Trump’s order, including those who have relatives in the seven countries, have filed lawsuits challenging the ban, and some have filed appeals.
The courts will hear the lawsuits in the coming weeks.
What happens next?
The court will likely consider arguments in the case in the weeks ahead, according to court filings from attorneys for the states of New Jersey, New York, California and Massachusetts, and from the Justice Department and the State Department.
The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the Trump travel order on Monday and Tuesday.
It is likely to decide whether to take up the case on June 6.
The U.K. Supreme Court on Tuesday issued an interim ruling that upholds the ban in its entirety.
The next step is for the court to hear oral argument on the case, according a letter from the U-K.
Foreign Office and legal counsel to the British government.
What does this mean for the U!
Supreme Court heard arguments in June in the travel ban case, but has yet to rule.
It was expected to issue a ruling this week, according in a tweet from the British Foreign Office.
The court could decide that the ban is unconstitutional and decide that those who want to remain in the U., including those from those seven countries who have families in the UK, should be able to do that.
But it would not immediately decide whether that should be the case.
A stay could be requested from the high court and could take a few weeks to reach that outcome.
The Supreme Court could decide to hear arguments on either side, depending on whether the court decides to stay or decide to take the case to the Supreme Court.
