Excellent. Even though it is moot now, it was important to adjudicate the issue.
The US Supreme Court has ruled in favour of the Trump administration’s travel ban targeting people from several Muslim-majority countries.
Lower courts had deemed the ban unconstitutional, but the US top court has reversed this decision in a 5-4 ruling announced on Tuesday.
The ban prohibits most people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen from entering the US.
The court’s reversal is viewed as a victory for the Trump administration.
But the travel ban has been widely criticised by refugee and human rights groups.
Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion, which said the travel ban was “squarely within the scope of Presidential authority”.
That decision is particularly interesting with the illegal-immigrant situation, by the way. Trump has the power to restrict it, just as he said he would like to do, and this decision affirms his thoughts on the issue.
ADDED: One only has to look at Sotomayor’s screaming hissy-fit 20-minute rant about the decision to know that she understands the implications for illegals.
How did Merrick Garland vote on the case?
Keeping terrorists out is a good thing.
Only liberals make something so simple controversial!
As long as we’re not worried about Russian gang members entering the country…
One only has to look at Sotomayor’s screaming hissy-fit…
The Wise Latina is actually a Hysterical Hispanic (and an abject idiot). She actually equated Korematsu v. United States to this case.
60 years later the Supreme Court admits a mistake and ONLY because of that hysterical Hispanic .
