Supreme Court Reinstates President Trump’s Travel Ban

(AP) — The Supreme Court is letting a limited version of the Trump administration ban on travel from six mostly Muslim countries to take effect, a victory for President Donald Trump in the biggest legal controversy of his young presidency.

The court said Monday the ban on visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen could be enforced as long as they lack a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.” The justices will hear arguments in the case in October.

Trump said last week that the ban would take effect 72 hours after being cleared by courts.

The Trump administration said the 90-day ban was needed to allow an internal review of the screening procedures for visa applicants from those countries. That review should be complete before Oct. 2, the first day the justices could hear arguments in their new term.

A 120-ban on refugees also is being allowed to take effect on a limited basis.

Three of the court’s conservative justices said they would have let the complete bans take effect.

Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, said the government has shown it is likely to succeed on the merits of the case, and that it will suffer irreparable harm with any interference. Thomas said the government’s interest in preserving national security outweighs any hardship to people denied entry into the country.

Two federal appeals courts had blocked the travel policy, which Trump announced a week after he took office in January and revised in March after setbacks in court.

    9-0 huh! That’s great. Something needs to be done about the 9th District which leans so far left and totally ignores the Constitution.

    Did you see that idiot from Hawaii blame the three conservative justices, calling them the “three” horsemen of the apocalyse. Where to start …

    FOUR horsemen.
    NINE justices.

    Wow! I just saw that it was a unanimous decision.

    This is more proof that the elites had absolutely no plan in place for a Hillary Clinton loss.

    ‘I can’t imagine what this place would be – I can’t imagine what the country would be – with Donald Trump as our president’ ‘I don’t want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.’ ” __Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    President Trump has put his boot on the neck of Ginsburg, if she lets her hatred of POTUS run loose she can and will be demanded to recuse herself from cases that involve President Donald Trump.

    There is no way if this was a travel ban by any other republican would Ginsburg or the other 3 signed off on it but they have shot themselves in the foot by banking on The Beast.

    A tangled web indeed.
