Supreme Court reinstates Trump travel ban

Supreme Court reinstates Trump travel ban

Some significant cases, including the possibility the court will hand down a decision on the legality of President Trump's travel ban, will be decided.

President Trump signed an executive order that would ban refugees and immigrants from seven mostly Muslim countries from entering the United States for 90 days and would suspend a refugee program for 120 days.

The court could side with opponents of the ban and refuse to let it take effect.

The court also said it would allow a 120-day ban on all refugees entering the United States to go into effect on the same grounds, allowing the government to exclude from the United States refugee claimants who do not have any "bona fide relationship" with an American individual or entity.

The move by the court is a relative victory for President Trump, whose ban has received widespread criticism. The judge said tweets by Trump suggested that the ban was on the basis of religion, not national security as Trump had claimed. That prospect always seemed remote, and is even more so during the final week of June, with the court scheduled to issue the term's final opinions on Monday. They said relatively few people would fall under the ban because people coming to study, work or visit family members in the United States already have sufficient relationships with others already is in the country. Republicans hold a 52-48 majority in the Senate, and under rules they passed to expedite Gorsuch's confirmation they would need only a simple majority to fill the next court vacancy.

"The Executive Branch is entrusted with the responsibility to keep the country safe under Article II of the Constitution", U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement after the 9th Circuit ruling.

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy is seen during a ceremony in the Rose Garden at the White House April 10, 2017, in Washington, D.C. Earlier in the day Gorsuch, 49, was sworn in as the 113th associate justice in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court.

Speculation about a Kennedy retirement was sparked partly because he was slow to hire clerks for the court's next term. He casts it as critical to deterring terror attacks in the United States. Replacing Kennedy, the swing vote for the last decade on the closely divided court, would be more significant. The Ninth District Court of Appeals upheld the restraining orders.

Mr Trump's first executive order on travel applied to travellers from the six countries as well as Iraq, and took effect immediately, causing chaos and panic at airports over the last weekend in January as the Homeland Security Department scrambled to figure out who the order covered and how it was to be implemented. He was a federal judge, and had no involvement in the formulation or roll out of the travel policy.

The revised order also jettisoned language that gave preferential status to persecuted religious minorities, which critics said could be taken as favoring Christians and other religious groups over Muslims.

Trump issued the order amid rising global concern about attacks carried out by Islamist militants like those in Paris, London, Brussels, Berlin and other cities.
