The Supreme Court today has granted a partial stay, allowing key aspects of the President’s Executive Order to keep America safe to go into effect, and has agreed to hear the case on the merits this fall.
We’re very pleased with the Court granting the stay concerning the most significant aspects of the President’s Executive Order on immigration. At the same time, we’re also very pleased that the high Court has agreed to hear the case in the fall.
It has been our position from the very beginning that the President – the Commander-in-Chief – has both the constitutional and statutory authority to issue the Order. President Trump acted lawfully and constitutionally with the intent to protect the national security of the United States.
We are confident that the high Court will conclude on the merits that the President was acting within his constitutional authority.
The ACLJ has filed multiple amicus briefs – including at the Supreme Court – backing President Trump’s Executive Order designed to enhance our national security. We are preparing to file a new amicus brief with the Supreme Court at the merits stage supporting the immigration order.

As the planned summit between the United States and North Korea was on, then off, and now on again, President Trump acknowledged that the phased dismantling of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program was a possibility. Many in the media latched onto this as a reversal of the President’s pledge that...
