Trump On Travel Ban Ruling: It's 'Pretty Much The Final Word'

Supreme Court upholds travel ban in major win for Trump

The court ruled 5-4 in favor of the controversial travel ban marking President Trump's first major high court decision win.

The ban "is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who can not be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices", Roberts wrote.

Last September, Trump's government banned most citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen from traveling to the United States. Chad was originally on the list but it was recently removed after having met baseline security requirements. Previous versions of the ban were revised after being challenged in court.

Trump also gloated over "TRAVEL BAN" decision on Twitter.

Banning travel to the USA from countries which were deemed as posing terrorist threat under the Obama administration was one of key promises of the Trump campaign.

Further, "Late Night" show host Seth Meyers joked that the American Supreme Court should uphold Trump's travel ban only if he can name all the seven the countries that fall under it (ban).

The travel ban has been fully in place since the court declined to block it in December.

Joe Biden (in 1992) and Chuck Schumer (in 2007) that the Senate shouldn't confirm a nominee in the final year of a presidency. Chad initially was on the list of countries targeted by Trump that was announced in September, but he removed it on April 10.

One side of the bracket appears to be stacked, featuring four of the top five teams in the world . What other match could it be? Both Belgium and England have already qualified for the last 16.

Senator Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said, "Despite today's ruling, turning away those fleeing horrific violence and persecution or to discriminate against people based on nationality and religion continues to be as un-American as ever". "It is instead the significance of those statements in reviewing a Presidential directive, neutral on its face, addressing a matter within the core of executive responsibility".

Trump's tweet contradicted what then-Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters in January 2016 when he insisted Trump's executive order is "not a travel ban."

The four liberal justices offered a strong rebuttal, recalling Trump's call for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" and saying that objective "masquerades behind a facade of national-security concerns".

"From upholding slavery and segregation to banning Chinese immigrants and interning Japanese-Americans", Hassan says.

The travel ban has already been in effect since late past year and targets Venezuelan government officials and their families.

"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".
