The Supreme Court said on Monday that it will hear two cases related to President Donald Trump’s efforts to limit migration into the U.S. from Mexico.

One case concerns whether the Trump administration’s use of disputed military funds to construct a portion of a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border violated the law.

Another involves his administration’s “remain in Mexico” policy for those seeking asylum in the United States.

The Justice Department asked the top court to hear appeals in both cases after suffering defeats in lower courts.

The announcement from the justices was made in an order. Decisions in the cases are expected by the end of June.
