The United States Supreme Court has ruled in favor of our President.
As of right now, the court has decided to approve all restrictions of the travel ban.
This can be seen as not only a victory for our President, but for the safety of our country.
The basics of this travel ban is that people from countries that are mostly Muslim could be completely barred or at the very least put on restriction when it comes to entering the United States.
This is different from the previous ruling where people that had U.S. connections (ie family).
This ruling was not without contention with the judges. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Justice Sonia Sotomayor were among those against the ban.
The hope with some justices was to keep the lower courts ruling. This would have allowed people from these six countries that had a relationship with someone who is already in the United States.
This would have included cousins, grandparents, and others who had relations to the residents of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Chad and Syria to have access to the United States.
Due to lack of records, this would have proved to be a problem.
Even though this is a victory, other lower courts are to have more arguments this week. Including 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Fransisco and 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals based in Richmond, Virginia.
The Supreme Court has states that it hopes that these courts can reach decisions “with appropriate dispatch”
As lower courts continue to hold hearings in regards to the travel ban. The third and full version of President Trump’s travel ban will remain in full effect until at least June.
This is when the Supreme Court is expected to finish ruling on the rest of the legal issues surrounding the ban.
With violence on the rise out of these countries, it is no surprise that President Trump wants to put America first and keep its citizens safe.
