US Supreme Court allows Trump's travel ban to take full effect

Miriam Fawaz a Syrian refugee living with her husband and three children in Bridgeport says the justices decision is heartbreaking

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said the White House is "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".

By contrast, civil libertarians and immigrants rights advocates portrayed the third travel order as more of the same: an unwarranted ban that targeted Muslims.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the order "a substantial victory for the safety and security of the American people". The Trump administration has said that blocking the full ban was causing "irreparable harm" because the policy is based on legitimate national security and foreign policy concerns. President Donald Trump's decision has been challenged on questions such as his legal authority to issue such an order and whether it constitutes a religious test and a Muslim ban, as promised by Mr. Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. "He has repeatedly confirmed it, including just last week on Twitter", he said, referring to the President retweeting a series of anti-Muslim videos posted by a British nationalist.

President Trump contended that the ban has been necessary to stop terrorist assaults by way of Islamic militants. "We continue to stand for freedom, equality and for those who are unfairly being separated from their loved ones", Jadwat added.

Mr. Francisco asked the justices to allow every part of the third ban to go into effect.

The ban also covers people from North Korea and some Venezuelan government officials, but those provisions were already in effect.

The court's brief, unsigned orders on Monday urged appeals courts to move swiftly to determine whether the latest ban was lawful.

The court gave no reason for its decision, but said it expected lower court review of the executive orders to proceed quickly.

The justices, with two dissenting votes, said Monday that the policy can take full effect even as legal challenges against it make their way through the courts. The court's order said the appeals courts should decide the cases "with appropriate dispatch".

Voting 7-2, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg were the only two to dissent from the other seven.

Although the court's justices are still expected to rule on the ban's legality, as challenges to the policy are wind through the federal courts, the action indicates that it may eventually approve the latest version of the ban.

There are some exceptions to the ban.

The court's orders mean that the administration can fully enforce its new restrictions on travel from eight nations, six of them predominantly Muslim. "This massive victory for American security comes just after President Trump boldly withdrew our country from the UN's unsafe, irresponsible Global Compact on Migration", it said.

In lawsuits filed in Hawaii and Maryland, federal courts said the updated travel ban violated federal immigration law.

The administration has said the ban is not discriminatory and pointed out that many Muslim-majority countries are unaffected by it. "However, there was no ruling yet on the merits of the ban itself, so it's still possible that it can be overturned".
