The decision was a victory for the administration after its mixed success before the court over the summer, when justices considered and eventually dismissed disputes over the second version.

The US Supreme court has indicated that it will approve Trump's controversial travel ban, with only of the court's justices noting their disagreements with the policy.

In a statement, Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the Supreme Court's action "a substantial victory for the safety and security of the American people".

Those orders were temporary measures, he wrote, while the proclamation was the product of extensive study and deliberation.

The travel ban can be found to be unconstitutional in a future decision and the ban is being legally challenged in several different courts.
