Supreme Court Upholds Trump's Travel Ban

The Supreme Court on Monday upheld President Trump's Travel Ban Executive Order overturning Lower Court Decisions that Blocked the Policy.

The Court divided 5-4 along its usual Ideological lines, with the Republican-Appointed Justices in the Majority insisting they were not endorsing Trump's Campaign-Trail Rhetoric calling for a Ban on Muslim Immigration to the U.S.

The Travel Ban Policy the Justices accepted was significantly watered down from the First Version Trump issued Seven Days after his Inauguration last year.

The Decision Upholding the President's Broad Powers in the areas of Immigration and National Security could embolden Trump to take more Aggressive moves to Curtail Travel from Majority Muslim Countries.

The Latest Version of the Ban levels a range of Travel Restrictions against Five Majority-Muslim Countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen, as well as North Korea and Venezuela. Chad, another Majority Muslim Nation, was Removed from the List in April.

“The Proclamation is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the Majority. The text says nothing about religion.
