Supreme Court Term's End Notable for What Was, Wasn't Said

That will happen after the Supreme Court returns to hearing arguments in the fall. Chief Justice John Roberts announced on Monday that the cases would be re-argued.

The court decided that Trump's temporary blockage of travelers from six Middle Eastern and North African nations will be allowed, while agreeing to hear the full case later this year.

The case could affect the Trump administration's efforts to step up deportation efforts.

President Donald Trump's travel ban win at the Supreme Court on Monday so incensed Democrat Rep. Mazie Hirono that she called a trio of justices "horsemen of the apocalypse".

"Neil Gorsuch, who I did not support as a Supreme Court Justice, he's joined two of the most conservatives justices - Clarence Thomas and Alito - on the court to take the position that the entire injunction should have been lifted", the congresswoman said, The Blaze reported. Kennedy could still announce his retirement at any time, though the last day of the term was seen as an opportune moment.

The gossip mill went into overdrive after his former law clerks moved up a planned reunion to last weekend - as judges traditionally announce retirement plans to their clerks before the public - but after teasing the assembled alum with a big announcement, it wasn't what they expected. President Donald Trump use the conflict promising he'd keep the court in balance.




Gorsuch is Trump's recent nominee to the court, while Thomas was nominated by President Bush the elder and Alito by President Bush the younger.

The court did leave one category of foreigners protected, those "with a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States", the court said in an unsigned opinion.

"It's hardly a clear victory", Hirono said to Andrea Mitchell, "and in fact everything that the president talks about, everything is great, wonderful, it's still a Muslim ban".

Before the Supreme Court justices begin their long summer break, they're poised to act on the Trump administration's travel ban and a separation of church and state dispute involving a Missouri church playground.

Kennedy made no announcement about retiring at the reunion dinner on Saturday, nor did he indicate how long he would stay in the role as the longest serving Justice on the current court. Kennedy's departure would allow conservatives to take firm control of the court.
