President Donald Trump is still trying to figure out how he can keep the travel ban in place, despite his victory in Tuesday’s election.
In his first 100 days, Trump is scheduled to issue 5,200 executive orders.
But the president’s first order blocking people from seven majority-Muslim countries was blocked by the courts.
Trump is expected to take executive action on another order later this week on a travel ban for people from the United Arab Emirates, which was blocked in a lawsuit filed by California.
But he’s not expected to get that order through Congress until after the 2020 midterm elections.
The White House did not respond to a request for comment about the Supreme court’s ruling on Trump.
The court’s decision also has ramifications for the president.
Trump will have to abide by a series of directives issued by the federal courts in the days after his inauguration that allow him to implement his executive orders on an emergency basis.
The president will also be able to reinstate executive orders that have been suspended, but they have not yet been implemented.
