Trump Praises SCOTUS Decision On Travel Ban

The attorney general said he was looking forward to arguing on behalf of the USA president when the case comes before the Supreme Court, calling it his Constitutional duty to protect the national security of the United States.

First, the Supreme Court did not make a final ruling on the orders, "essentially what they're saying is the United States government can institute this travel ban except in the case of people who have a connection to the United States", Nations said.

The partial ban, which affects applicants from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, could be back in effect within as little as 72 hours. In the meantime, those subject to the ban who have some "bona fide" connection to the USA - such as a relative in the country or an offer of admission to a US university - can still enter.

In practice, that means that students and business travelers, as well as people with close family members, might be granted entry. This ruling applies to tourists as well as students accepted into US higher education institutions or employees of companies in the USA seeking new visas.

"How individuals will prove such a (bona fide) relationship, and whether the burden of proof will be on the government or the individuals seeking entry, remains to be seen", Yale-Loehr agreed.

David Levine, a professor at the University of California's Hastings College of Law, said the justices likely will not sidestep a ruling on the executive order on those grounds.

"We expect our leaders to be fearless enough to stand up for human rights and against policies that put lives at risk, while perpetuating hate and fear", NDP immigration critic Jenny Kwan said in a statement. But they voiced concern the administration would interpret the ban as broadly as it could.

Notably, Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Justice Samuel Alito and Justice Neil Gorsuch, wrote separately to argue that the injunctions should be lifted "in full". His administration has argued the ban is in the interest of national security and needed to have an internal review of screening procedures for people from the countries in question.

"We are deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court's ruling to uphold the portion of the Trump administration's travel ban that halts the admittance of refugees to safety in the United States".

But the Supreme Court ruled that the injunctions went too far in barring enforcement of ยง 2 (c) with regard to foreign nationals overseas who have no connection to the United States at all, and granted the Trump administration's request to stay enforcement of the injunction as applied to foreign nationals that have no bona fide relationship to a person or entity in the United States.

The court also reinstated the 120-day ban on all refugees entering the United States, allowing the government to bar any claimant refugees who do not have a "bona fide relationship" with an individual citizen or entity.

Amazon's Purchase: What this Means for other Grocery Stores
CNBC noted: " Whole Foods would be required to pay Amazon a $400 million breakup fee if the deal is broken for another bidder". The company, however, has faced fierce competition from neighboring retail chains, particularly Costco, Safeway, and Walmart .

At issue in the Supreme Court's decision today are Sections 2 (c) and 6 of EO-2.

But the Supreme Court found that the injunctions went too far. At the Appeals Court, the ban suffered yet another defeat. "It's not a clear win for the plaintiffs, but it may be better than it looks at first blush".

Still, the court's decision offers much broader protections for immigrants and travelers from those countries than the original travel ban did-that is, unless you're a refugee.

A few weeks ago, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled that the ban violated the president's authority as granted by Congress. "Justice [Sonia] Sotomayor is not afraid to dissent when she wants to".

Even though the Supreme Court is expected to hear the travel order case in October, it noted that the case could be moot at that time.

But Kennedy didn't say anything in public Monday, and the court's actions might provide good reasons for him to stay.

Blackman called the court's decision Monday a "sharp rebuke of the lower court ruling" that put the policy on hold.

The justices will hear full arguments in the October.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled against the ban, said Trump's order couldn't be separated from the apparent animus against Muslims that inspired it. That argument factored substantially into lower courts' repeated decisions to block the ban.

Conservatives want the 80-year-old centrist to step down and give President Donald Trump a chance to reshape the court in a more conservative mold.
