This was already a big week for immigration law at the Supreme Court, and it could get even bigger.
The Trump administration lost their bid to include extended families in their Muslim ban 2.0 in federal court on Thursday.
For a guy who has fought to ban Muslims from the country and has repeatedly denigrated and isolated those who practice Islam, both at home and abroad, Trump's silence is certainly not surprising.
The challenge comes as the Trump administration tries to redefine the definition of family for the purpose of enforcing their unconstitutional ban.
One phrase in the Supreme Court’s decision allowing Trump to implement a part of his Muslim ban is the key to determining which Muslims are allowed to visit the United States and which are not. Following Monday’s ruling, there was some anticipation that the phrase “bona fide relationship with a person or entity” in the United States would be the subject of litigation.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that President Donald Trump violated the law with his executive order that banned Muslims from traveling to the United States.
Since Trump's emergence as a political figure, bashing the Muslim community has been one of his biggest applause lines among his supporters.
The most damning evidence that this is, in fact, a Muslim-targeted travel ban come directly from Donald Trump's Twitter feed.

Murphy said that Trump should stop whining about not getting his way and start learning how to run the government.
"We will keep working to protect immigrant rights and maintain an inclusive, diverse, and strong America."
The world is a different place than conservatives wish it to be, and those differences are only going to become more pronounced.
No matter how the president tries to package the executive order, he cannot escape his original intent of banning Muslims from entering the country.
Opponents of Trump’s mass deportation and Muslim ban policies are using technology to fight back on behalf of the victims of these policies.
The new Trump order reduces the number of people targeted, but the unconstitutional intent remains the same.
"We need an independent media to hold people like me to account...it's important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power.”
"Give the public a break - The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!"
He went on to say it is possible residents of those countries could be required to provide the information so officials can “get on those websites to see what they’re looking at.
While the court said it doesn't expect to hand down a decision today, it's clear that opponents of Trump's travel ban have the advantage.
