This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear a case challenging the Trump administration’s travel ban executive order. The ban covers six majority Muslim countries that the government says present a higher risk of terrorism. The court also let the ban go into effect for some travelers, reversing the actions of two lower courts that had put it on hold. In this hour, we’ll get the details on that decision, as well as get the latest on the Senate health care legislation, which faces an uncertain future as Republicans try to rally support for the controversial measure.
