Supreme Court travel ban verdict reignites fierce debate over immigration

Supreme Court Upholds Donald Trump’s Travel Ban 3.0, Says POTUS ‘Possesses An Extraordinary Power’

"By blindly accepting the Government's misguided invitation to sanction a discriminatory policy motivated by animosity toward a disfavored group, all in the name of a superficial claim of national security, the Court redeploys the same risky logic underlying Korematsu and merely replaces one gravely wrong decision with another", she said.

- Jimmy Fallon is getting the last laugh, responding to Trump's Twitter attack against him.

Wow!" In a statement, he described the ruling as a "tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution.

HORSLEY: That's right. What John Roberts said was is the issue before us is not whether to denounce those statements by the president but the significance of those statements in reviewing a presidential directive that he called neutral on its face.

The travel ban was one of Trump's signature hardline immigration policies that have been a central part of his presidency and "America First" approach.

Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 5-4, in an opinion by Chief Justice Roberts on June 26, 2018.

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said in a statement that she disagreed with the Supreme Court's decision, promising that her office will "continue to work with leaders in government and immigrant communities across Massachusetts to protect everyone's rights and stand up to hate in all of its forms". "We express no view on the soundness of the policy", Roberts added. Justice Breyer filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justice Kagan joined.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote that the decision "all the more troubling given the stark parallels between the reasoning of this case and that of Korematsu v".

"Bannon knew that people who were opposed to this policy would be enraged, and majority would have Saturday and Sunday off from work, so they could get out there and they could protest and they could get angry", says Joshua Green of Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

"This is a great victory for our Constitution", Trump said in his remarks after the Supreme Court upheld his September travel ban on eight countries - Chad, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.

It also affects two non-Muslim countries, blocking travelers from North Korea and some Venezuelan government officials and their families.

His lawyers said that only Trump's actions since he became president in January 2017 should be relevant to the case. It upholds the selective travel restrictions, which critics called a discriminatory "Muslim ban" but the administration argued was needed for security reasons.

The challengers, though, argued that the court could not just ignore all that had happened, beginning with Trump's campaign tweets to prevent the entry of Muslims into the United States.

Arthur, a former immigration judge, said the order was created to improve information-sharing between the U.S. and countries that are not providing adequate information on the identity, criminal history and terrorist ties of its citizens who are trying to enter the U.S. The administration identified 47 countries with questionable information-sharing processes through its implementation of the travel ban and has been working to improve those relationships.

That triggered chaos and protests across the U.S. as travellers were stopped from boarding worldwide flights and detained at airports for hours.

The next version, unveiled in March 2017, dropped Iraq from the list of covered countries and made it clear the 90-day ban covering Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen did not apply to those travellers who already had visas. The order contained an exception for members of religious minorities. "I said just pray that this ban does not hold forever".

Federal judges have blocked the DACA decision, with Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis in Brooklyn citing Trump's "racially charged language" in a ruling that allowed lawsuits over DACA to proceed. But Arthur conceded that Roberts and his majority also managed to provide the longest and most in-depth defense yet of the presidential ability to ban people deemed "detrimental to the interests" of the U.S.
