ORDER IN PENDING CASE 16-1540

TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF U.S., ET AL.
V.
HAWAII, ET AL.

The Government’s motion seeking clarification of our order of June 26, 2017, is denied. The District Court order modifying the preliminary injunction with respect to refugees covered by a formal assurance is stayed pending resolution of the Government’s appeal to the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Justice Thomas, Justice Alito, and Justice Gorsuch would have stayed the District Court order in its entirety.

He distills BladeRunner as a postmodern epic so well in another vid.

But yeah, someone who reads and writes and makes videos.

Kinda what I wanna be. He’s very smart and inspiring. Like all of you.
