Travel ruling could boost other immigration suits

Supreme Court Upholds Donald Trump’s Travel Ban 3.0, Says POTUS ‘Possesses An Extraordinary Power’

Supreme Court Definitively Upholds Trump's Muslim Ban

While Tuesday's ruling does not deal with the arrest or prosecution of border crossers, it will likely be cited by Trump's lawyers as bolstering the government's authority along the borders.

"I am thrilled the courts are starting to back up President Trump", she said. Some even made comparisons (as Sotomayor did) to the Supreme Court's infamous approval of Japanese internment camps during World War II.

This ruling is also a moment of profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country.

While the president's ban did not directly apply to refugee processing (the Trump administration suspended admission of most Muslim refugees in a separate order), it did affect refugees and others in humanitarian need from the targeted countries who were depending on immigrant visas (outside the refugee admissions process) to flee imminent danger and to reunite with their families.

Although a judge in Hawaii ordered the government last fall not to enforce the latest travel ban, the Supreme Court lifted that order in December, and the restrictions have been in place since then.

Trump nearly immediately stated his delight in the Supreme Court ruling, taking to his Twitter account to declare, "Wow!" It restricts entry from seven countries, though some very slightly, like Venezuela. One week into his presidency, he followed through with a campaign promise and announced a 90-day ban on travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Chad was originally on the list but it was recently removed after having met baseline security requirements.

In a dissenting opinion on Tuesday, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer examined the waiver process at length, and mentioned a case of a Yemeni child with cerebral palsy who was initially denied a US visa.

CFIUS reviews-or the threat of reviews-have largely halted Chinese purchases of US semiconductor companies. Policies companies object to are "integral to the growth model China is pursuing", he said .

It's not clear how or if the travel ban will affect the Conrad 30 J-1 visa waiver, which allows global medical students to stay in the United States after residency for three years if they work in a rural or urban community where there is a physician shortage.

In a scathing dissenting opinion, Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote: "Based on the evidence in the record, a reasonable observer would conclude that the Proclamation was motivated by anti-Muslim animus".

In the case, Trump v. Hawaii, the state of Hawaii argues that the ban hurts its university system by banning potential students and scholars from entering the country.

Lower courts had deemed the ban unconstitutional, but the U.S. top court has reversed this decision in a 5-4 ruling announced on Tuesday.

President Trump responded to the ruling on Twitter, saying, "SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN".

"I think not only will the ruling increase Islamophobia, it is an expression of Islamophobia", Hooper said at the rally outside the Supreme Court.

INSKEEP: So how did John Roberts, the chief justice, justify the ruling in favor of the travel ban?

Wow!" In a statement, he described the ruling as a "tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution.

The president's tweets, campaign speeches and statements-as well as those of his advisers-were, after all, "at the heart of plaintiffs' case" that the president's executive order violated the First Amendment's establishment clause, as the majority opinion reads.

Today's Court ruling complicates California's efforts to empower women with information about their healthcare.

Many would have also argued that the Japanese exclusion orders were "facially neutral" and we remind the court that Executive Order 9066 did not specify Japanese or Japanese Americans and was used to target small numbers of Germans and Italians.

"It comes out of nowhere in a decision upholding the travel ban case", said Elizabeth Wydra, the president of the Constitutional Accountability Center.

In the decision, Roberts said the ban was premised on "legitimate purposes": to prevent the entry of those from countries who can't be adequately vetted, and inducing other nations to improve their practices.
