Each ruling took a different tack and used different reasoning to arrive at very similar conclusions.
Chair of the Committee on Migration for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Bishop Joe Vasquez of Austin said he was "heartened" by the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals' decision.
In a footnote, the judges cite a Trump tweet in support of their contention.
Bishop Joe went on to say: "Upholding the injunction will allow us to continue welcoming and serving refugees fleeing persecution".
An entry on the Supreme Court docket said that the administration can file its new brief on Thursday.
The White House memo "should be construed to amend the executive order" and was issued "in light of questions in litigation about the effective date of the enjoined provisions and in the interest of clarity", the White House said.

But the court is scheduled to end its term June 26, so that would seem to mean even if the court accepted the case, it would not be scheduled for argument until the fall.
