Travel Ban Heads to Supreme Court      01/20 10:06

   The Supreme Court has agreed to decide the legality of the latest version of 
President Donald Trump's ban on travel to the United States by residents of six 
majority-Muslim countries.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court has agreed to decide the legality of 
the latest version of President Donald Trump's ban on travel to the United 
States by residents of six majority-Muslim countries.

   The issue pits an administration that considers the restrictions necessary 
for Americans' security against challengers who claim it is illegally aimed at 
Muslims and stems from Trump's campaign call for a "complete shutdown of 
Muslims" entering the U.S.

   The justices plan to hear argument in April and issue a final ruling by late 
June on a Trump policy that has been repeatedly blocked and struck down in the 
lower courts.
