Supreme Court rules 5-4 to uphold a travel ban

The Supreme Court reached a decision on the Trump administration’s travel ban.

The Supreme court on Tuesday President Trump confirmed the controversial travel ban on several, mostly Muslim countries, offers a limited endorsement of the President of the Executive power on immigration in one of the toughest battles of this time.

The 5-4 decision marks the first major high court decision on a trump administration policy. It is the selective travel restrictions, argued critics as a discriminatory “Muslim ban” but the management, the necessary safeguards, for safety reasons.

In a written statement, Trump called the verdict “a tremendous victory for the American people and the Constitution.” As critics continue the policy decried as “xenophobic” Trump the court described the decision as “a moment of defense-in-depth following months of hysterical comments from the media and democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our borders and our country.”

In dispute was whether the third and current version of the administration of the guidelines, the visitors from five Muslim-majority Nations – known as a travel ban 3.0 – discrimination on the basis of nationality and religion, in the government’s issuance of immigration visa.


Chief Justice John Roberts, the author of the conservative opinion of the majority, wrote that the order “directly in the context of presidential authority” under federal law.

“The only requirement specified in [Federal law] that the President find that the entry of the covered aliens would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. The President has undoubtedly fulfilled this requirement here,” he wrote.

Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor was among the court’s four liberals, wrote a dissent.

To clean “the repackaging little [of the policy] of the occurrence of discrimination, the President created the words,” she said. “On the basis of the evidence in the record, is would a reasonable observer that the proclamation was motivated by anti-Muslim animus.”

She and Justice Stephen Breyer took the unusual step of reading her dissents from the bench.

While the policy was granted, the case was returned to the lower courts, which said they rely on the Supreme court’s interpretation of the Executive.

It was the first significant legal test, so far from Trump politics and power-and could the context of a precedent-setting expansion on the limits of presidential authority, especially in immigration.

Federal appeals courts in Virginia and California in the last few months, had ruled against the administration. The San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court last December, completed Trump Annunciation, as is the case with the two previous executive orders that exceed his authority to regulate the entry of immigrants and visitors.

But the judge had discharged allowed, the current restrictions can be enforced, to the Ministry of justice of the request, at least until the case was complete.

The Trump administration also seemed to enjoy a favorable reception in front of the court during arguments in April. Associate Justice Samuel Alito, during those April’s arguments, noted that the 50 or so mostly Muslim-majority countries, only five were list of the current banned.

The White house had framed the Problem as a temporary move in the context of national security.

A coalition of groups in opposition to the blatant discrimination on the grounds of Religion, because the participating countries have a predominantly Muslim population: Iran, Libya, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Chad was recently removed from the list after the government said the country had beefed up to share his information.

A major sticking point for the judges, the Navigation, how much discretion the President was really about immigration. Courts have in the past, already deferential in this area, and the last President from Jimmy Carter to Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama have used it, to refuse admission of certain refugees and diplomats, including Nations such as Iran, Cuba and North Korea.

A 1952 Federal law — the Immigration and Nationality Act, passed in the midst of the Cold war, more fear of the Communist influence — historically, the chief executive gives broad authority.

It reads in part: “If the President finds that the entry of any aliens or class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may, by proclamation, and for such period as he deems necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of foreigners, restrictions he thinks suitable.”

The administration denied violently, the forbid a “Muslim,” but the Federal judges all over the country quoted the statements of presidential candidate, Trump and his advisers, to and including December 2015-campaign press release calling for such restrictions and relying on “hate” by “large parts of the Muslim population.”

The high court majority shut down the Trump campaign played statements as an important factor in their decision.

“The Problem before us is not to denounce the statements,” wrote Roberts. “The importance of these statements in the review is, rather, a presidential Directive, neutral on its face, addressing a matter within the core executive responsibility. In doing so, we must take into account not only the assertions of a President, but also the authority of the presidency itself.”

Sixteen heads of state of Texas of trump-management were mentioned in a number of coalitions secure. But Hawaii officials, who filed the complaint, denies all the commands of the President, said the policy of the President against the Constitution guarantees the freedom of religion:

“Any reasonable observer, is part of the promise of the president’s campaign, read its hardly justified to orders prohibition of the predominantly Muslim population, and monitored its management of the permanent statements that link the two, that would prohibit the procedure and each of its precursors as the fulfillment of the President, his promise to the Muslim immigration in the United States.”

Trump issued the first executive order, just a week after he took office, was addressed to seven countries. There is chaos and protests in the US sparked, as some travellers were stopped from boarding international flights and the other fixed, at the airports for hours. Trump changed, after a Federal appeals court rejected, in order for the ban to be enforced.

“It’s not about religion-this is terror and keep our country safe,” the President said on Jan. 29, 2017.

The next version, unveiled weeks later, dropped Iraq from the list of countries and clear the 90-day ban covers, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, not for the travelers, who already have a valid Visa. It also got rid of language that gives priority to religious minorities. Critics said the changes did not erase the legal problems with the ban.

If the second temporary travel ban expired in Sept. 24, it was replaced with the proclamation 9645-of what was said by the administration, was a country-by-country assessment of the security and the cooperation with the United States
