Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress and motion to dismiss his indictment charging him with failure to register as a sex offender after traveling interstate commerce is affirmed where: 1) defendant's constitutional challenge to the federal Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) is rejected; 2) defendant lacks standing to raise a Tenth Amendment challenge to SORNA because he is a private party; 3) SORNA applies to defendant who traveled interstate after enactment of the Act but before the Attorney General issued the interim rule on the application of the Act.
