Those opposed to President Trump's travel ban have until Monday afternoon to file responses to a petition filed with the Supreme Court, according to CNN.

Currently, justices are deciding whether they will take on the Trump Administration's appeal on his travel ban. As they do that, the Trump Administration is asking the Supreme Court to let his travel ban go into effect.

Monday's deadline comes about two weeks before the Supreme Courts' term is scheduled to end.

In March, federal courts blocked the President's ban. The ban would ban people from certain Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days. It would also suspend the refugee programs for 120 days.

The Trump Administration needs the votes of five justices.
