This short paper, written before the Supreme Court’s decision in Trump v. Hawaii, summarized the background of that case and the legal claims before the Court. The paper predicted that the Court would not likely accept plaintiffs’ religious-discrimination claim or their claim that the President exceeded his authority under 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f), but it held out hope for their argument that the entry ban violated 8 U.S.C. § 1152(a)(1)(a). In the end, a majority of the Justices rejected all three.
