Following his ascension to the Oval Office in 2017, President Trump issued an executive order banning entry to the United States from seven Muslim-majority countries. On June 26, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the third iteration of the ban after earlier versions had been enjoined in lower federal courts, and then revised and blocked again. Our panel of experts explores recent legal developments since Trump v. Hawaii.
