The Supreme Court has granted the Department of Justice's request to allow President Donald Trump's latest travel ban to take effect throughout the appeals process. Trump ordered the ban Sept. 24, and two federal appeals courts are scheduled to hear arguments this week. The Supreme Court could hear further appeals down the line, however, and Monday decision allows the ban to take effect throughout that process. This interim decision is considered by some to be a litmus test for a potential future ruling by the Supreme Court.
