people who came in with visas from these countries? heather: defense secretary john kelly said we won't know that until the boom. where do we go from here. to weigh in attorney chris. thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me. based on yesterday's argument i don't think this court is going to reinstate trump's travel ban. i don't know that they'll necessarily come out today. this is a pretty complex argument. there were four ways i saw them going, two of them seemed most likely, that's number one, they just uphold the district court's decision and number two they actually send it back to the district court and basically say it's too early for us to rule on it at this point, go back to district court, present evidence and then come back and see us after the court, when the trial judge has had an opportunity to review the evidence in a further decision has been made. heather: you said there were four possible outcomes. >> the other two overturn the
district court judge and another would have been, would be my view on it is the -- take the fact that they could impose the ban for syrian refugees who have no connection to these plaintiffs and the second would be to effectively district court's order for the state of washington, their citizens who are actually suing on behalf of. the plaintiff here is the state of washington. heather: the state of washington, they are saying, and minnesota, right. >> right, state of washington and minnesota. heather: the order is based on religion. the president is saying it's based on national security. >> the plaintiffs brought a case saying they are trying to protect their citizens and their businesses, they are sr. no standing to sue on behalf of syria, syrian refugee that has no connection to minnesota or washington and certainly nothing to overturn or trump's broad
authority to determine who can enter the united states and in the national interest of the united states. heather: it's not just muslims from these seven countries because there have been christians who have been stopped as well already specifically from syria. >> absolutely. the current travel ban is much broader than just the seven muslim countries. heather: in terms of the president, he says he's ready to take this all the way through the system, that, of course, would be the supreme court. what will happen there? >> right now we only have 8 justices, defending on -- heather: tie. >> depending who wins, the timing of appeals could matter and depending whether judge gorsuch is ultimately confirmed and sitting on the supreme court. if the lower court rulings are unfavorable to trump, that means when they go to the supreme court they are going to need five of the nine justices and certainly gorsuch and the probability increases of a trump win with him on the court. heather: you have to look at that.
speaking of timing, it was only a 90-day, 120-day ban, so will that start if the stay is in place? >> there's other parts, for example, the syrian refugee ban that's indefinite that could remain in place and certainly what happens and what preference are given to refugees when the ban is lifted and refugees are allowed back in the country. heather: we will see what happens. another busy day. great of you to come in. i have a feeling you're going to talk more about this. >> nope, you pretty much covered it all. we will expand on it, heather, a lot of your topics and sound bites, we will talk about the latest of the immigration battle. sounds boring but very impactfulment here to weigh in jeff blake, big critic of donald trump at times but now he's
