Trump travel ban: protesters demonstrate against SC’s ruling

In a 5-to-4 decision, the Supreme Court's conservative justices wrote that even considering all of President Trump's anti-Muslim statements about the travel ban, the order should be upheld.

The ban "is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who can not be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices", Roberts wrote.

Roberts emphasized that the text of the challenged presidential Proclamation is neutral with respect to religion, and "has a legitimate grounding in national security concerns, quite apart from any religious hostility". A sixth Muslim-majority nation, Chad, also was included in the ban before the Trump administration removed it from the list.

In a 5-4 decision, the court ruled that the president has the Constitutional authority under USA immigration laws to limit travel from foreign countries on over national security concerns, as the Trump administration has repeatedly argued.

In a statement, Trump called the ruling "a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution".

She accused those who voted to uphold the travel ban of "completely" setting "aside the President's charged statements about Muslims".

Justice Sonia Sotomayor, in a blistering dissent, said the court was wrong to ignore Trump's various comments.
