The travel ban survives as long as it can "reasonably be understood to result from a justification independent of unconstitutional grounds", Roberts wrote, noting that the court hardly ever strikes down a policy under that test.

Justice Sotomayor described at length various statements Mr Trump made on the campaign trail. He added that the court would not comment on whether the policy was good.

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

Joe Biden (D-Del.) gave a speech calling for Congress to delay any prospective Supreme Court pick until after then-President George Bush's ultimately unsuccessful reelection bid.

Opponents of the ban challenged the decision in court. Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan also dissented.
