Two lower court rulings initially blocked Donald Trump’s latest order, in March, for being discriminatory.

Trump’s order prompted nationwide protests. Nine judges are now tasked with deciding whether his campaign rhetoric is evidence that the ban was intended to discriminate against Muslims.

The nations that would be affected by the 90-day bar on entry are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
