President Trump’s administration formally petitioned the Supreme Court to hear arguments over his travel ban in an expedited fashion and restore the ban immediately.
The filing indicates Trump’s team wants the high court to review the petition quickly so that arguments could begin promptly at the start of the next term. Scheduled oral arguments have ended for the existing term, which concludes this month.
“Regardless of whether a stay is granted, the government respectfully requests expedited briefing and consideration of its petition of a writ of certiorari,” said the Trump team on Thursday. “In that manner, if the petition can be considered before the Court adjourns, and if the Court grants review, merits briefing could be completed by the beginning of the next Term, thereby avoiding further delay in the final resolution of the exceptionally important issues presented.”
The petition asks the high court to review the legality of the lower-court blockade of Trump’s ban, whether the ban violates the Establishment Clause of the Constitution, and whether the blockade of the ban is “impermissibly overbroad.”
