  • President Donald Trump's controversial 'travel ban' is a DON DEAL

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 San Francisco-based 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals and the 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, will be holding arguments on the legality of the ban this week.

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.

"We are not surprised by today's Supreme Court decision permitting immediate enforcement of the President's proclamation limiting travel from countries presenting heightened risks of terrorism", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said after the order.

The Run-UpThe podcast that makes sense of the most delirious stretch of the 2016 campaign. Many will be barred from working, studying or vacationing here. 150 million people are now not allowed to come to the United States.

Yesterday the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the third iteration of President Trump's Travel Ban.

The orders gave no reasons for the court's shift.

Citing national security concerns, Trump announced his initial travel ban on citizens of certain Muslim-majority nations in late January, bringing havoc and protests to airports around the country.

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". The policy does not apply to lawful permanent residents of the US or those holding a valid USA visa issued prior to the proclamation's effective date. The ACLU is representing some opponents of the ban.

"President Trump's anti-Muslim prejudice is no secret - he has repeatedly confirmed it, including just last week on Twitter", said Omar Jadwat, director of the A.C.L.U.'s Immigrants' Rights Project. Those orders were temporary measures, he wrote, while the proclamation was the product of extensive study and deliberation.

Trump had promised as a candidate to impose "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States".

Two federal judges had blocked latest version of the ban in October, but those rulings are now set aside.

Over the past 16 months, NEWS CENTER has spoken with dozens of immigrants, many from Somalia and the Middle East, who now worry that their families in their home countries may never be able to join them in America.

Quick resolution by appellate courts would allow the Supreme Court to hear and decide the issue this term, by the end of June. They filed an emergency appeal November 20 contending that allowing the ban to go into only partial effect "will cause ongoing irreparable harm to the government and the public". They agreed the ban could go into effect in part, but not against those who had close personal or professional ties to a person or an entity in the United States. The travel ban can be found to be unconstitutional in a future decision and the ban is being legally challenged in several different courts.
