Petition filed under Trump supervision appealed Supreme Court to lift ban that asked for suspension of visa issuance to travelers from Muslim majority states. Original travel ban had been opposed for long by lower courts and states. Counter-claims were filed by different states against the ban. In February, the executive order by president Trump faced rebellion of government employees and other individuals from private sector. For a Syrian seeking asylum, senior judge of federal court, Wisconsin, circulated a restraining order against ban on travel. Thirteen states advocated revised statement by court on travel ban stating that Trump imposed ban for national security reasons. The case is still yet to be decided.
