neil gorsuch or without him, the administration has a tremendous case and is likely to win on the merits because the supreme court does not want to get involved in setting a precedent that is dangerous in hawaii, washington, and campaign rhetoric made an impact on a president's national security power. the supreme court wants to go there. the president has been awarded, and even if neil gorsuch is on the court or not, wait until he is, the trump administration will win it. abby: another one? rob: a bosnian serb applies to be a refugee in the united states in the 19s, and statements, get to the country,

wasn't revealed until later, a lot of questions whether citizenship is revoked after you are naturalized, the original statement you made in the first place. abby: the next involves religious freedom and separation of church and state, trinity lutheran church, the church school was denied the preschool, they were denied state funding for playground. what do you see happening? the argument set for april 19th. >> this is a huge case and it will make a huge difference because the supreme court delayed this case, an unprecedented move for a year, they did not, so important they did not want it to end. so much ramification for religious liberty so trinity lutheran church as a playground
applied for state funds, and they were denied it, has to do with their religious practice. a lot of conservatives feel it is an infringement of threatening things as religious liberty and freedom of religion, and actual religious practices and equal protection getting access to these fund and these are the cases if neil gorsuch is on the bench, likely that conservatives will side with the church on this one. >> always interesting to see. >> let's check with brian kilby and for what is going on. >> a long night, it will be a relief to talk about it. you know what is going on yesterday.
