    Supreme Court upholds Trump travel ban

    Supreme Court upholds Trump travel ban

    June 26, 2018

    Pete Williams


    WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court upheld President Donald Trump's restriction on travel to the United States from a handful of Muslim countries on Tuesday, giving the White House its first high court victory on the merits of a Trump initiative.

    After a series of federal court rulings invalidated or scaled back earlier versions of the travel ban, Monday's win for the administration ended 15 months of legal battles over a key part of the president's immigration policy, which opponents attacked as a dressed up form of the Muslim ban Donald that Trump promised during his 2016 campaign.

    Imposed last September by presidential proclamation, the latest version maintains limits on granting visas to travelers from five of the seven countries covered by the original executive order on travel — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. It lifts restrictions on visitors from Sudan, and it adds new limits on North Korea and Venezuela.

    Chad was part of the proclamation but was taken off the list in April after the White House said it met enhanced visa security requirements. Iraq was listed in the original travel ban imposed last year but was removed in the second version.

    The state of Hawaii, three of its resident, and a Muslim-American group challenged the new restrictions, and a federal judge blocked enforcement. But the Supreme Court lifted the stay last December, and the government has been carrying it out in full ever since.

    The Trump administration argued that this version of the travel ban is different, because it was imposed only after the administration surveyed more than 200 countries for their effectiveness in providing information about the backgrounds of visa applicants and success in fighting terrorism.

    The Justice Department said the Constitution and federal laws give the president broad authority to suspend or restrict entry into the country when he deems it to be in the nation's interest. While immigration law doesn't require the president to spell out detailed findings before he invokes the authority, the government said, the September proclamation was more detailed than any previous order limiting travel.

    But Hawaii and the other challengers said federal law gives the president power to ban only foreign nationals who share some characteristic making them harmful to the U.S. The travel ban was flawed, they said, because it restricted entry by 150 million people who share nothing in common but nationality. They also said the proclamation was based on religious animus, citing frequent promises from Trump, as a candidate and as president, to impose a Muslim ban.

    The first executive order on travel, announced in February 2017, caused chaos at major airports when border officials refused to admit travelers who were in flight when the rules went into effect. It was quickly blocked by the courts.

    Enforcement of a second travel ban, issued about a month later, was also stopped by lower court judges. The Supreme Court then allowed it to be enforced except for visa applicants with family or other close U.S. connections, but the revised version expired before it was to be the subject of full blown Supreme Court review last fall.

    Supreme Court upholds Trump travel ban


    By MARK SHERMAN

    Just now

    June 26, 2018


    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has upheld President Donald Trump’s ban on travel from several mostly Muslim countries, rejecting a challenge that it discriminated against Muslims or exceeded his authority.


    The 5-4 decision Tuesday is the court’s first substantive ruling on a Trump administration policy.


    Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion, joined by his four conservative colleagues.


    Roberts wrote that presidents have substantial power to regulate immigration.


    The court may have signaled its eventual approval in December, when the justices allowed the policy to take full effect even as the court fight continued and lower courts had ruled it out of bounds.

    Supreme Court rules for Trump in challenge to his administration's travel ban



    June 26, 2018

    Tucker Higgins

    The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in favor of President Donald Trump in Trump v. Hawaii, the controversial case regarding concerning Trump's September order to restrict travel to the U.S. for citizens of several majority Muslim countries.


    In the 5-4 opinion penned by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court found that Trump's immigration restriction fell "squarely" within the president's authority. The court rejected claims that the ban was motivated by religious hostility.


    "The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes:

    preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices," Roberts wrote. "The text says nothing about religion."


    The case has been central to the Trump administration's immigration policy, presenting a key test of the president's campaign promise to restrict immigration and secure America's borders.


    The immigration restriction is the Trump administration's third, and affects people from Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. Chad was dropped from the list of affected countries in April.


    Previous iterations of the ban were revised after facing challenges in court.

    Hawaii alleged that the immigration restriction was motivated by religious discrimination, noting that a majority of the countries included in the ban have primarily Muslim populations. During oral argument in April, Neil Katyal, attorney for the challengers in the case, cited Trump's post-election tweets about the case, and argued that the travel restriction amounted to a "Muslim ban."


    The government argued that "it would be the most ineffective Muslim ban that one could possibly imagine."


    "Not only does it exclude the vast majority of the Muslim world, it also omits three Muslim-majority countries that were covered by past orders, including Iraq, Chad, and Sudan," Noel Francisco, the solicitor general, told the court.

    Among the tweets at issue in the case is one from September in which the president wrote that the "travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"

    Katyal also cited Trump's retweeting of what Katyal called "virulent anti-Muslim videos" in November of last year. The videos had titles such as "Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!" and "Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!"


    The president has said that the ban is not about Islam.


    "This is not about religion—this is about terror and keeping our country safe," the president said in January, after facing criticism over the first iteration of the order.

    That initial order, signed in the first weeks of the Trump administration, led to days of protests around the country, with thousands gathering at airports to demonstrate.


    This is a breaking news story. Please check back for updates.

    Supreme Court Upholds Travel Ban in Trump v. Hawaii Ruling




    June 26, 2018

    Ken Klukowski


    The Supreme Court ruled in favor of President Trump and his immigration policy across the board in a 5-4 decision on Tuesday, holding that the permanent entry restrictions from various terror-prone nations codified in Presidential Proclamation 9645 is fully consistent with Congress’s Immigration and Nationality Act as well as the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution.


    Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority that admission and exclusion of foreign nationals is a “fundamental sovereign attribute exercised by the Government’s political departments largely immune from judicial control,” quoting from an earlier case, and that the president has extraordinarily broad discretion under 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f) to exclude aliens when he believes doing so is in the nation’s interests.


    President Trump’s policy is permitted by the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution, because Presidential Proclamation 9645 provides a religion-neutral explanation for the policy that is facially legitimate, rejecting plaintiffs’ arguments that the policy advanced an impermissible religious purpose.


    The case is Trump v. Hawaii, No. 17-965 in the Supreme Court of the United States.

    @MarkSKrikorian


    Good news: SCOTUS upheld the president's unambiguous, explicit authority to keep out any foreigner whose entry he finds "would be detrimental to the interests of the US" (8 USC §1182(f)).Bad news: It was a 5-4 vote. #ButGorsuch

    Now the Supreme Court needs to do its job and rule DACA unconstitutional and demand the White House end it fully immediately.
