The Trump administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday to allow President Donald Trump's latest travel ban to take full effect after a California appeals court ruled last week that only parts of it could be enacted.

The administration's appeal to the top U.S. court argued that the latest travel ban differed from the previous orders "both in process and in substance" and that the differences showed it "is based on national-security and foreign-affairs objectives, not religious animus."

Trump's ban was announced on Sept. 24 and replaced two previous versions that had been impeded by federal courts.
