Monday, the Justice Department requested a stay of the 9th Circuit's most recent interpretation of Trump's executive travel order. The debates here, now before the Supreme Court, have centered around what constitutes such a "bona fide relationship".

The visit comes as lawmakers from Florida have made appeals to their colleagues in Congress to give more disaster relief aid to FEMA, anxious that the scope of the damage in Florida will require more resources to be approved in coming weeks.
