Title: In victory for Trump, Supreme Court dismisses travel ban case

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court dismissed a major challenge to President Trump's travel ban on majority-Muslim countries Tuesday because it has been replaced by a new version, sending the controversy back to the starting block.

The ruling is a victory for the Trump administration, which had asked the court to drop the case after Trump signed a proclamation Sept. 24 that replaced the temporary travel ban on six nations with a new, indefinite ban affecting eight countries. That action made the court challenge moot, the justices ruled.

"We express no view on the merits," the justices said in a one-page order.

The decision effectively wipes the record clean in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, one of two federal appeals courts that had struck down major portions of Trump's travel ban. That case began in Maryland.

A separate case from the 9th Circuit, based in California, remains pending because it includes a ban on refugees worldwide that won't expire until later this month. But the Supreme Court is likely to ditch that case, which began in Hawaii, as well.

The challengers in both cases already have renewed their lawsuits in the lower courts, starting the legal process anew. In Maryland, a federal district court has scheduled a new hearing for next week.

But the new travel ban and the Supreme Court's order vacating the 4th Circuit appeals court judgment puts the administration in a somewhat stronger position, at least for now.

The 4th Circuit case was brought by the International Refugee Assistance Project, which argued that banning travel from six majority-Muslim countries violated the First Amendment's guarantee of freedom of religion.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented from the court's action. She would have dismissed the case but in a way that would have preserved the appeals court ruling against the ban, rather than vacating it.

Under its original schedule, the court would have heard the case Tuesday, but had delayed oral argument after Trump replaced his earlier order. The new version followed a three-month review of immigration procedures.

The latest travel ban targets five countries included in two previous versions — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen — as well as Chad, North Korea and Venezuela. Unlike the earlier bans, it treats some countries and types of travelers, such as students or tourists, differently than others.

The administration told the justices last week that the new ban is "based on detailed findings regarding the national security interests of the United States that were reached after a thorough, worldwide review and extensive consultation."

The ban's challengers argued that the case against the last version should go forward because many of the same travelers and their families are adversely affected — not just for 90 days, but indefinitely.

The American Civil Liberties Union, which brought the 4th Circuit challenge on behalf of the refugee group, had said charges of anti-Muslim discrimination still applied "despite some new window dressing" — a reference to the addition of North Korea and Venezuela.

Hawaii, which brought the 9th Circuit challenge, warned the justices that elements of the earlier ban still could be revived, since Trump has said he wants a "much tougher version."

banning travel from six majority-Muslim countries violated the First Amendment's guarantee of freedom of religion.

So OUR constitutional first amendment freedom of religion protects the right of some Muslim living in Syrian -- with no documents -- to freely enter the United Sta Sta States?

But it doesn't protect the right of a U.S. citizen to refuse service on religious grounds.

Well, the Court is a little cowardly here, saying that Trump changed his EO so the original case from the Fourth Circuit is moot. Pretty elementary lawyering.

The Hawaii case continues but it looks pretty bad for them at this point.

In the end, I think Trump wins this one. And, since he's already paid the full freight on immigration restrictions in these cases, he has no incentive whatsoever to liberalize his policies at all. He is, in fact, moving to greatly restrict refugee status, immigrant visas, children rushing our border unaccompanied, etc.

The libs will rage but they made Trump pay the price for his policies. And now Trump is going to get his money's worth out of it. Sessions is all too willing to help as he has been tarred and feathered by the same libtards for years on these policies.

They're going to regret they tried to pull this shabby trick on Trump. They've hurt their own cause ultimately. And Stephen Miller remains in the WH, pointing this out to Trump over and over.
