US Supreme Court upholds Trump travel ban

"The Proclamation is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who can not be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices", Chief Justice Roberts wrote. "The text says nothing about religion", Roberts wrote.

The heart of the travel ban puts restrictions on people who want to come to the USA from Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Yemen.

The Supreme Court has upheld President Trump's travel ban by a vote of 5-to-4.

SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!

The court, in its ruling, refused to hold Mr. Trump's campaign-era anti-Muslim statements and his tweets against him, saying that his policy of restricting entry of citizens from some foreign countries was neutral on its face. "The president has made it clear that his Muslim ban and refugee policies were never meant to be about national security, but instead discrimination against certain people for their cultures and religious beliefs". You might remember that in - when the first version of the travel ban was put forward, the Trump administration was making that argument, that decisions that the president made concerning who could come into the country were not even subject to judicial review. In 1944, there was no evidence linking Japanese Americans to any threat to the country; there is now no evidence linking immigrants or visitors from the designated travel ban countries to terrorism. Trump indicated he doesn't have any plans to expand upon the current ban, despite his previous statements describing the order as "watered down" compared to the previous two.

A low scoring, methodically played match will play to Denmark's advantage. "Relationships and tactics get better", he explained. But Jorgensen saved what would have surely been a goal , and then his goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel came to the rescue.

The ban prohibits most people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen from entering the US. Religious freedom is one of the most fundamental pillars of our Constitution, and this policy is at odds with who we are as a nation.

Iraq was covered by earlier versions of the travel ban, but the administration removed it citing its close cooperation in fighting ISIS.

The Court ruled that the law violated the free speech rights of Christian facilities.

"The President's inclusion of North Korea and Venezuela does little to mitigate the anti-Muslim animus that permeates the Proclamation", Sotomayor wrote, adding that the travel ban "overwhelmingly targets Muslim-majority nations".
