Supreme Court allows travel ban to go into effect

The Supreme Court granted the application for a stay of the District Court's preliminary injunction of October 17, 2017, pending disposition of the government's appeal in the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and disposition of the government's petition for a writ of certiorari, if one is sought. The court also issued a similar order in Trump v. Hawaii, meaning that the presidential proclamation of September 24, 2017 will go into full effect while the appeal is pending.
