Your Travel Ban Isn't Safe Yet, Mr. Trump

Corey Brettschneider

Here is my piece for the New York Times today about the travel ban.

Yesterday President Trump tweeted that he was “grateful” for the Supreme Court’s unanimous opinion on his travel ban, which allowed some of it to stand pending the court’s review this fall. But he shouldn’t celebrate just yet: The decision is a loss, not a win, a distinction totally lost on our rapid-fire media.

Read carefully, the opinion makes it clear that most of the Supreme Court justices think Mr. Trump’s executive order, which restricts travel from six Muslim-majority countries, is likely to be struck down if the court hears the case in the fall, as scheduled.
