Supreme Court backs Pres. Trump’s travel ban


The Supreme Court upheld the President’s travel ban on Tuesday in a 5-4 decision.

The Court says the President has the legal authority to limit immigration based on concerns for National Security. Chief Justice Roberts wrote the majority opinion. He stated the presidents have the power to regulate immigration and rejected the challenging claims of anti-Muslim rhetoric.

Chief Roberts made a point of not endorsing many of the President’s statements about Muslims and made clear that religion cannot be a reason to ban immigration.

However, in the 5-4 ruling, the Court said the President’s position appears legally defensible and Constitutional, should lower courts determine that the ban is indeed, based on national security.
