The Supreme Court of the United States in a ruling 9-0 largely upheld the travel ban from certain companies. The controversial ban included travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen without proof of a "bonafide relationship with a person or entity" in the United States.
The high court ruled that the partial reinstatement was legally appropriate fro the President to implement. The travel ban follows months of controversy fueled by media-generated rhetoric as a "ban on Muslims" gaining the attention and attacks of CAIR, Democrats, and injunctions were applied by lower court rulings in appeals earlier this year. The ban, known as the "Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States" was signed by President Trump. The executive order was signed as part of an extreme vetting process to provide further scrutiny to refugees and travelers from the countries stated. President Trump stated "We don't want them here. We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country, and love deeply our people."
The ban includes a 120 day suspension of admission and directs officials to additional screening of application. The order further precludes, indefinitely, a ban on refugees from Syria. Earlier, President Trump cited that difficulty of Christian refugees from Syria to be located in the United States, but a larger influx of Muslims who had far easier times.
Today's ruling by the Supreme Court was praised by conservatives across the nation. President Trump remarked that his number one responsibility was to keep Americans safe praising this ruling and the unanimous ruling by the Supreme Court as a way to protect the American Homeland.
Nancy Pelosi (D), House Minority Leader stated "The Trump Administration has consistently shown that discrimination, not natural security, si the purpose of this ban".
The ban does not target Muslims, as the news cycles have lauded for the past several months. The ban targets travelers that seek to immigrate or obtain a visa to the US from a few countries. The ban, with the exception of Syria, provides for additional scrutiny by the justice department. This deeper background check is in response to homeland acts of terror by refugees and visa holders. Some of these attacks were carried about by individuals that had obvious or predictable ties to terrorist organizations and likely could have been prohibited.
