Supreme Court Upholds Travel Ban 3.0

The first executive order January 27, 2017, suspended travel for 90 days from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen and blocked refugees for 120 days. It also includes limited sanctions against North Korea and Venezuela.

The travel ban was among the court's biggest cases this term and the latest in a string of 5-4 decisions in which the conservative side of the court, bolstered by the addition of Gorsuch past year, prevailed.

After federal courts blocked that order, Trump signed a revised executive order March 26, 2017, targeting six countries while exempting travelers with visas and permanent-residency documents known as green cards. United States decision, which upheld internment camps for US citizens and noncitizens of Japanese descent during World War II, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote: "Korematsu was gravely wrong the day it was decided, has been overruled in the court of history, and - to be clear - 'has no place in law under the Constitution'".

"We're going to run on border security", Trump said.

Hundreds of people gathered in New York City's Foley Square on Tuesday evening to decry the Supreme Court decision.

President Donald Trump is hailing the Supreme Court's ruling upholding his administration's travel ban as "a moment of profound vindication". The Supreme Court had allowed it to go largely into effect last December while the legal challenge continued.

"We just have to know who's coming here", he said.

Supreme Court lawyer Neal Katyal, who represented the state of Hawaii and other challengers in the Supreme Court case involving Trump's travel ban, said he's disappointed with the decision.

It's not clear how or if the travel ban will affect the Conrad 30 J-1 visa waiver, which allows global medical students to stay in the United States after residency for three years if they work in a rural or urban community where there is a physician shortage.

"As a community, we must have our voices be heard, and the only way to do that is to make sure that we are registered to vote, and that we vote", Sheiah said.

Russia Warns of 'Tough Response' to New US Military Space Force
Many suspect Trump's Space Force talk is just meant to distract Americans from the humanitarian crisis happening at our borders. Donald Trump had approached the Pentagon to make a "Space Force" that would turn into the 6th branch of the American military.

Soon after the court's ruling, Trump took to his Twitter and tweeted, "SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN".

In a statement from the White House, the U.S. president said he would continue to "fight for an immigration system that serves the national interests of the United States and its citizens". So this travel ban, by the third version, they had neutralized any anti-Muslim animus.

The Roberts Court is historically unusual in that none of the justices ever held elected office; the experience gap contributes to an impression that they are naive about the way their decisions affect and distort the political system.

After a more moderate version of the two GOP proposals failed on Thursday and two delays on the Republicans' "compromise" bill, pressure is on the president's party to finally deliver a fix to the country's immigration problems, including controversial family separations along the USA border.

But new State Department statistics released on Tuesday show that US consular officers issued waivers to the ban in only 2 percent of visa applications over the course of almost five months.

"The Proclamation is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who can not be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices", Chief Justice Roberts wrote.

In Tuesday's 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the president has broad authority to regulate immigration despite concerns that his travel ban unfairly targets Muslim countries.

The challengers had argued that the policy was motivated by Trump's enmity toward Muslims and urged courts to take into account his inflammatory comments during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"The Supreme Court got this one wrong".

"Presidential power doesn't always protect", read another, with a black-and-white image of some Japanese-Americans who were held at the interment camps.
