Washington Examiner: Supreme Court takes on Trump's travel ban -- "While Trump’s remarks on the campaign trail could be a major flashpoint in arguments Wednesday, Josh Blackman, an associate professor at the South Texas College of Law in Houston, said he doesn’t believe the justices will give weight to those statements. 'I’m OK with courts looking at statements made by the president after the inauguration. I think the campaign trail has to be off limits,' he said during a call with reporters Friday. 'There’s certain chilling repercussions if courts start quoting candidates.'"
