The United States Of America president, Donald Trump has requested that the U.S Supreme Court should revive the Muslim ban following the failure of his previous executive order barring entry for people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days while the U.S. government implements stricter visa screening in March.

The courts had blocked his executive order for its discrimination of some people but last night Trump government filed two emergency applications seeking to block two different lower court rulings.

“We have asked the Supreme Court to hear this important case and are confident that President Trump’s executive order is well within his lawful authority to keep the nation safe and protect our communities from terrorism,” Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said in a statement.

At least five votes are needed on the nine-justice court in order to grant a stay of the order. If the government’s request is granted, the ban would go into effect.
