Trump hails 'tremendous' Supreme Court ruling — Travel ban

A dissenting justice said the outcome was a historic mistake. Although not the oldest, he is the most senior member of the court, having been nominated by former President Ronald Reagan. The president quickly tweeted his reaction: "Wow!"

"Writing for the court, Chief Justice John Roberts said that the Trump administration "has set forth a sufficient national security justification" to prevail".

Trump did not disclose whether Kennedy made any such recommendations.

"We express no view on the soundness of the policy", Justice Roberts added.

With the court's five conservatives in the majority, the ruling also ended a fierce fight in the courts over whether the policy amounted to an unlawful Muslim ban.

In dissent, liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor said there were "stark parallels" with the court's now discredited 1944 decision that upheld U.S. internment of Japanese-Americans during World War Two. Republicans are fighting to maintain control of both houses of Congress, with opinion polls showing Democrats have a strong chance of winning back the House of Representatives.

The ban prohibits most people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States. "And women who are poor, who might not have the resources to take time off of work or stay in a hotel out of state, would be more likely to either bring pregnancies to term or terminate them illegally using something like black-market medication". Three other majority-Muslim nations, including Chad, Iraq and Sudan have been removed. At issue was Mr. Trump's order limiting entry to the US of nationals from eight (now seven) countries that are unwilling or unable to cooperate sufficiently in USA antiterrorist screening efforts. Grassley said the Senate could provide the extra funds for additional committee majority and minority staff, and he would want the nomination right away. "And, hopefully, we're going to pick somebody who will be as outstanding".

If he had the ball less than usual then it is because Argentina did not dominate or have that many opportunities. His body language was completely the opposite before the Croatia game on Thursday.

North Korea and some government officials from Venezuela were included in the final version of the travel ban, which was considered by the Supreme Court. "He's been a great justice for the Supreme Court".

Schumer said today it's a good time to follow that rule now. Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan also dissented. He nominated conservative judge Neil Gorsuch in 2017. "They can not come to the United States because of an unjust and unconstitutional travel ban", Alrubyee said.

The often raw and unfiltered messages sent out from the Trump White House strike a stark contrast with the more controlled and traditional messaging strategies used by previous administration's. Today's decision will only add bragging rights to the Trump campaign. He has defended it as a key part of his immigration policy and part of his "America First" way of governing.

Trump on Tuesday declared the ruling "a moment of profound vindication" following "months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country". Brionna Aho, a spokeswoman for Ferguson, said the office was waiting for direction from the court on how to proceed on its lawsuit.

"The country is moving in the direction of supporting it - that's where history is taking us", she said.

"The Supreme Court has upheld a ban driven by anti-Muslim sentiment", said Jasmin Samy, the council's state executive director. "That research will be immensely important, and so will be the questions that we ask, as they were with Justice Gorsuch, even though we disagreed with the result".
