2:02 pm
arguments on the legality of the ban this coming october. i am joined by mark fisher from the washington post. what is the mood like in washington right now? >> it is a bit confused as people parse through what the supreme court has said today. a lot of people on the other side are saying that there is no decision here. this is a temporary measure on the part of the court to allow this band to go forward with a significant part not going forward as we await the actual decision of the supreme court sometime this fall or next spring. >> what does this really mean? is this a victory as the u.s. president is saying? by the time october arrives,
2:03 pm
this window of time he has asked for in the ban will have passed. > that is right, that is onef the questions that the court will be taking in october. they asked the lawyers from the trump administration and the advocates for the immigrants to come back and say is there a vagal issue -- legal issue here? the supreme court does not work over the summer so by the time they come back, the ban will have run its course. at that point, the administration will say that we need to make some of the aspects of this been p permanen. they do not address that in today's ruling. it is not really a ruling, it is a temporary stay that allows him to go ahead and ban some people.

2:05 pm
this was a 9-0 decision. there were three members of the court that wanted all of the trump band to be able to move forward. a majority said only certain portions, only people with no previous connection will be able to come from those six countries. obviously there are advocates for the band. n. . the only thing the court was addressing in this decision was if the administration had the authority to do this on a temporary basis. should they be allowed to move forward while we consider this? >> mark fisher with the washington post, giving us some insight. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> defense cooperation is said
