Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote a concurrence on why he supported the Pentagon request:

“I concur within the Courtroom’s determination to grant the Authorities’s software for a partial keep of the District Courtroom’s prelim­inary injunction for a easy overarching motive: Underneath Ar­ticle II of the Structure, the President of the USA, not any federal decide, is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. In mild of that bedrock constitutional precept, “courts historically have been reluctant to in­trude upon the authority of the Government in army and nationwide safety affairs.”

“In sum, I see no foundation on this case for using the judi­cial energy in a fashion that army commanders consider would impair the army of the USA because it defends the American individuals.”

Justice Samuel Alito strongly dissented:

“By rubber stamping the Authorities’s request for what it calls a “partial keep,” the Courtroom does an awesome injustice to the 35 respondents—Navy Seals and others within the Naval Spe­cial Warfare group—who’ve volunteered to below­take demanding and unsafe duties to defend our coun­attempt. These people seem to have been handled shabbily by the Navy, and the Courtroom brushes all that apart. I’d not achieve this, and I due to this fact dissent.”
