The Supreme Court on Monday delivered the Trump administration a win by allowing a revised version of President Trump's travel ban to take effect. The latest ban — the administration's third attempt at imposing travel restrictions on certain countries — identifies Iran, Libya, North Korea, Yemen, Syria, Chad, Yemen, and Venezuela as the affected nations.

The high court's action came in response to White House lawyers' request for Trump's order to be enforceable while legal challenges against it continue. The justices on Monday essentially kicked the onus of determining the ban's legality down to appeals courts, saying it expected lower courts to act quickly, The Washington Post reported.
