Supreme Court rules 5-4 to uphold travel ban

In major victory for national security President Trumps travel ban can and will be enforced. Islamic Extremist Terrorist loving lefties lose again.

Supreme Court reaches decision on the Trump administration's travel ban.

President Trump cheered the Supreme Court’s decision Tuesday to uphold the administration’s controversial travel ban affecting several mostly Muslim countries, following the ruling on one of the hardest-fought legal battles of his term.

“SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!” Trump tweeted minutes after the court’s decision was made public.

The 5-4 ruling marks the first major high court decision on a Trump administration policy. The decision upholds the selective travel restrictions, which critics called a discriminatory “Muslim ban” but the administration argued were needed for security reasons.

At issue was whether the third and latest version of the administration’s policy affecting visitors from five Muslim majority nations—known as travel ban 3.0—discriminates on the basis of nationality and religion in issuing immigrant visas.

Chief Justice John Roberts, who authored the conservative majority opinion, wrote that the order was “squarely within the scope of Presidential authority” under federal law.

The court’s decision offered a narrow endorsement of the president’s executive authority on immigration.

While the policy was upheld, the justices sent the case back to the lower courts, which were told to rely on the Supreme Court’s interpretation of executive authority.

The White House released an official statement from the president calling the decision a "tremendous victory."

"Today's Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution. The Supreme Court has upheld the clear authority of the President to defend the national security of the United States," Trump said in the official statement. "In this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians, we must properly vet those coming into our country."

The president also said that the ruling was a "moment of profound vindication" after months of "hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians."

"As long as I am President, I will defend the sovereignty, safety, and security of the American People, and fight for an immigration system that serves the national interests of the United States and its citizens," Trump said. "Our country will always be safe, secure and protected on my watch."

The countries affected in Travel Ban 3.0 involved mostly Muslim populations: Iran, Libya, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Chad was recently removed from the list after the administration said that country had beefed up its information sharing.

A lawyer fighting the policy, Neal Katyal, said in a statement that “the final chapter has not yet been written.”

“The president would be mistaken to interpret today’s decision as a greenlight to continue his unwise and un-American policies,” Katyal said in a statement to Fox News Tuesday. “As the Supreme Court has repeatedly said, not everything that is constitutional is good policy. The travel ban is atrocious policy, and makes us less safe and undermines our American ideals.”
He added: “Now that the Court has upheld it, it is up to Congress to do its job and reverse President Trump’s unilateral and unwise travel ban.”

This tells me that the policy is flexible, and that the affected countries can get off the list by helping out with info. I doubt there is much traffic from those countries anyway. It's a solid gesture though, should serve notice that the US is watching.

Not buying the White House "tremendous victory" hyperbole, or the "Islamic Extremist Terrorist loving lefties lose again" wanking. It is just matter-of-fact comon sense security policy, which hopefully will be amended when these countries calm down.

The lefties claimed President Trump's travel ban was against Muslims and therefore he is a religious bigot.

As usual the lefties lied and Chief Justice Roberts made it very clear in the decision that President Trump's ban had nothing to do with any religion.

It is a fair and timely decision.

Good thing you aren't on the Supreme Court, because for you it is very much about religion, and bonus for your type is this policy fits neatly with your agenda. Weren't you the one who posted that Muslims should not be allowed to run for public office in the U.S.?

Trump made a good call, the system processed it, with all the noise that is made by grinding gears of state, and reached a decent decision.

Nuf said. America is functioning. Next?

I sure as F hope he finally got it passed, after 2 other sad tries. I'd feel bad for him if he messed this one up at this point, for the sake of looking like we have a competent President who can get stuff done if he wants.

So after a year in the courts, President Trump's 90 day travel ban put in place to allow time to figure put what is going on goes into effect. Gee, congratulations Mr. President I guess. You've had well over a year to figure out what's going on. Are you that incompetent that you still don't know what's going on?

4 of the 5 countries are listed as state sponsors of terrorism by the State Department. This should've been common sense not a long legal battle.

The countries on the travel ban include Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Sudan, Venezuela, Yemen

So 4 of those 7 counties are official designated state sponsors of terrorism (Iran, NK, Syria and Sudan). Libya, Venezuela and Yemen are absolute messes.

I mean how is this portrayed as a Muslim ban? The ACLU is still calling it a Muslim ban.

What I do not understand is if this was designed to be a Muslim ban why aren't countries like India, Turkey, Pakistan, Indonesia, Egypt, etc listed?

Trump is the one who portrayed it as a Muslim ban. Remember?

"I am calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."

It is a third attempt at trying to tell people who voted for him he is keeping campaign promises. The promise and the first two versions were unconstitutional, so this is what remains. It really makes no sense, considering most of the 9-11 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia, Boston Marathon bombers from Chechnya (Russia), etc. However, Trump has figured out that his supporters don't need policies to make sense as long as they are mean-spirited and as-racist-as-legally-allowable.

Shouldn’t you consider that the federal judges, who struck down the first two versions, had valid reasons? They tend to be brilliant fair people.

Yes, that is what he said as a candidate. But what the policy was did not live up to that.

How could it be a Muslim ban when Iran, Libya, Sudan, Syria and Yemen only make up 9.8% of the world population of Muslims?

The State Department does not consider Saudi Arabia a state sponsor of terror. They are also not undergoing internal warfare and conflict like some of the other war torn nations in the ban are.

Of course people in these positions are very smart, with their background and experience, they are definitely more qualified than me, you or most people on legal issues. It seems however that the sentiment of the President's comments were given too much weight compared to what his actual legal authority is to do something like that. The travel ban in no way lived up to the billing of saying he wanted a Muslim ban before he was elected.

If the travel ban was intended to ban Muslims from traveling to the US, then I would agree, that is unconstitutional to ban an entire religion. That is not what this is. Over 90% of the world's Muslims are not negatively impacted by this travel restriction. The counties listed are in chaos or officially designated as sponsoring terrorism. That is exactly how I see it. I do not want a Muslim ban. Maybe Trump did then and maybe he does now, but again, this is not that and from what I understand the President does have the authority to enact exactly what he has.

National Security trumps hate by the left who simply cannot admit the truth.

The Supreme Court made the right decision based on the law.

This was Trump’s 3rd attempt to get it done, for a 33% success rate. Failure! Sad!

This is all that SCOTUS ruled on. Trump has the power to enact the ban. Whether he should or shouldn't is a separate issue.
