U.S. top court backs Trump's travel ban

U.S. top court backs Trump's travel ban

But even before Tuesday's ruling, many had reported difficulty obtaining a visa to travel to the United States following Trump's election.

"We were hoping that at least the Supreme Court would rule at least for fair play and let us be reunited with our families", said Salem, who came to the USA eight years ago and has since become a citizen. United States, which upheld the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

"We need to keep out every unsafe person who tries to come in this country, but to categorically brand people because of their religion or their background or country they're from is just not the way we should do things in America".

"Bannon knew that people who were opposed to this policy would be enraged, and majority would have Saturday and Sunday off from work, so they could get out there and they could protest and they could get angry", says Joshua Green of Bloomberg BusinessWeek. Our country will always be safe, secure, and protected on my watch.

Trump, who has called the travel ban necessary to protect the country against attacks by Islamic militants, reacted on Twitter, writing: "Wow!"

Lower courts had blocked the travel ban, the third version of a policy Trump first pursued a week after taking office previous year.

"By blindly accepting the Government's misguided invitation to sanction a discriminatory policy motivated by animosity toward a disfavored group, all in the name of a superficial claim of national security", Sotomayor wrote, "the Court redeploys the same unsafe logic underlying Korematsu and merely replaces one "gravely wrong" decision with another".

Federal courts again blocked the order, but the Supreme Court upheld parts of the ban and scheduled oral arguments in October. It restricts entry from seven countries, though some very slightly, like Venezuela.

The ban prohibits most people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen from entering the US.

The travel restrictions got the attention of officials in Iraq, Sudan and Chad, which subsequently improved their vetting procedures and were removed from the list.

Capitol Police charge almost 600 people protesting Trump immigration policies
In all, Capitol police arrested at least 575 women for the misdemeanor offense of unlawfully demonstrating in the Capitol. The White House has also said the order was not a long-term solution and called for Congress to pass immigration reform.

However, a slim majority on the nation's highest court approved the ban's third iteration.

In her dissent, Justice Sonia Sotomayor compared the ruling to a 1944 court decision, Korematsu v.

When the first ban attempt was announced in early 2017 shortly after Trump took office, the Migration Policy Institute noted that more than 22% of all healthcare workers were immigrants, and 28% of those healthcare workers were surgeons or physicians.

The president was in the White House residence when he found out about the 5-4 ruling.

Protesters call out against the Supreme Court ruling upholding President Donald Trump's travel ban outside the Supreme Court on Capitol Hill in Washington, June 26, 2018. Sotomayor said simply, "I dissent".

The majority opinion repudiates the racism at the heart of Korematsu, yet ignores the religious animus that has clearly guided the formation of the Muslim ban.

"Today's Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution". The policy has "a legitimate grounding in national security concerns", and it has several moderating features, including a waiver program that would allow some people from the affected countries to enter the U.S., Roberts said.

Hundreds of people gathered in New York City's Foley Square on Tuesday evening to decry the Supreme Court decision.

Today's Court ruling complicates California's efforts to empower women with information about their healthcare.

"While this decision doesn't address the separate and equally harmful ban on refugees, it cruelly traps people in conflict-afflicted countries and prevents them from seeking safety in the USA or being reunited with family", CNN quoted Mace as saying in a statement. This was the third version of the ban twice struck down by courts as the president narrowed its scope and added a non-Muslim country. John Cornyn of Texas says that despite claims by some Democrats, "This is not a Muslim ban".
