— The Supreme Court on Monday announced that it would listen to arguments surrounding President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban during its October sitting.

The decision came down as justices announced their final opinions of the term ahead of a summer break. Justices will review arguments over whether the ban violates constitutional protections against religion-based discrimination, among other things.
The court also agreed to lift preliminary injunctions that blocked the government from barring foreign nationals without connections to the U.S. from entering the country.
SCOTUS lifts injunction against travel ban, except with respect to individuals with bona dude relationship to the US— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 26, 2017
Justices said in their filing Monday that upholding the injunctions “would appreciably injure (America’s) interests without alleviating obvious hardship to anyone else.”
The court left in place injunctions that affect “foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."
Trump hailed the high court’s order as a “clear victory for our national security.” He said in a statement that his “number one responsibility” is to keep the American people safe.
The Trump administration appealed to the Supreme Court on June 1 after a lower court blocked the travel ban from going into effect.
The administration argued that an injunction issued by the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in May was too broad in blocking the government from banning foreign travelers from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days.
The travel ban was the second executive order addressing travel to the United States signed by the president after key provisions of the first were blocked by a federal court.
Trump signed his original executive order in January, barring foreign nationals from seven countries Muslim-majority from entering the U.S. for 90 days and suspending the U.S. refugee program for 120 days.
A federal judge blocked several key provision of the ban a week later. An appeals court declined to lift the order and the government announced it would put together a new travel ban.
The second version of the executive order was signed March 6 and barred foreign nationals from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
Major parts of the second executive order were blocked by a federal court in May, which determined that the government was likely to lose its case, because its arguments appeared to target people based on their religion rather than on national security concerns.
The president has numerous times argued that his travel ban is necessary to ensure the safety of Americans.

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE — Matthew Modine, an actor in the Hollywood film Memphis Belle who played a pilot, was at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force earlier today to see the real Memphis Belle.
He signed autographs, and spoke in the Air Force Museum Theater before a showing of the 1944 film “Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress.”
When asked how Modine felt about being a part of something so historic, “It’s incredible. It’s one of the great things about my job is that you get the opportunity to meet and work with people that come from all kinds of different walks of life and the experiences you have so greatly enrich your life.”
After 13 years of restoration, the iconic B-17 Memphis Belle rolled out in a new exhibit at the museum on May 17, which was the 75th anniversary of the completion of its 25th and final combat mission over Europe. The four-engine Boeing-built bomber was the first to finish 25 missions and return to the United States on a celebrated war bonds tour.
While in town, Modine had time to visit a Cincinnati Reds baseball game as well.

KETTERING — Kettering Health Network ER doctors urge caution during extreme heat.
Everyone is at risk when temperatures rise above 90 degrees, but the elderly and the very young are most susceptible to heat and heat-related illnesses.
Heat-related illnesses can cause serious injury and even death if unattended. Signs of these illnesses include nausea, dizziness, flushed or pale skin, and heavy sweating and headaches. If a person is affected by heat-related illness, they should be moved to a cool place, given cool water to drink, and ice packs or cool wet cloths should be applied to the skin.
If a person refuses water, vomits, or loses consciousness, call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number immediately.
Doctors also urge caution when playing and working outside in extreme heat to avoid injuries and life-threatening illnesses. They urge people to dress for the heat, drink water, eat small meals and eat more often, slow down, stay indoors when possible, and be a good neighbor.
For more information on how to avoid injuries and life-threatening illnesses, visit Kettering Health Network’s website.
