The US Supreme supports Trump's immigration veto

Donald Trump has embarked on a protectionist America First agenda since coming to power

The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled in favor of President Donald Trump's travel ban on majority-Muslim countries, upholding one of his most controversial policies.

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

The original ban prohibited people from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan and Somalia from entering the US for 90 days; put a pause on the USA refugee resettlement program for 120 days; suspended the resettlement of Syrian refugees; and cut the number of refugees that can be accepted into the U.S.to 50,000. Chad was recently removed from the list after the administration said that country had beefed up its information-sharing.

New York: Protesters in New York City demonstrated against the Supreme Court's ruling to uphold President Trump's travel ban and his administration's immigration policies.

The ruling sends a strong message that Trump has broad powers under immigration law to act to protect national security and that statements made during a campaign may not be legally determinative of the President's intent.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the travel ban, which critics called a discriminatory "Muslim ban" but the administration argued was needed for security reasons.

Lewis Hamilton admits French GP pole lap far from ideal
Ferrari's championship leader Sebastian Vettel , a point ahead of the Briton after seven of 21 races, qualified in third place. That victory erased a 14-point advantage held by Hamilton as the British driver finished fifth.

This is the third iteration of the travel ban, which was introduced through executive order days after Trump's inauguration in January 2017. She added that the five justices who approved the ban also turned "a blind eye to the pain and suffering the proclamation inflicts upon countless families and individuals, many of whom are US citizens".

Sotomayor wrote that she was unconvinced the travel ban does not target Muslims simply because it also affects North Korea and Venezuela.

The Chief Justice said the actions taken by Mr Trump to suspend entry of certain classes of people were "well within executive authority and could have been taken by any other president - the only question is evaluating the actions of this particular President in promulgating an otherwise valid proclamation".

Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson sued Trump past year over the travel ban affecting seven majority-Muslim nations. "United States", the infamous 1944 Supreme Court ruling that affirmed the US government's internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. (Not to mention there are still plenty of children who have yet to be reunited with their families.) It's not looking good for our country, and even though Trump may be impeached - or even better, voted out as a loser - he's going to leave a long-lasting stain on the United States. Both these judges said Trump's anti-Muslim comments were proof that the ban was biased against Muslims and immigrants.

Senator Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said, "Despite today's ruling, turning away those fleeing horrific violence and persecution or to discriminate against people based on nationality and religion continues to be as un-American as ever".
