US court upholds Trump travel ban


Washington, June 27: President Trump acted lawfully in imposing limits on travel from several predominantly Muslim nations, the Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday.
The vote was 5 to 4, with the Court’s conservatives in the majority. Writing for the majority, Chief Justice John G Roberts Jr said that Trump had ample statutory authority to make national security judgments in the realm of immigration. And he rejected a constitutional challenge to Trump’s latest executive order on the matter, his third, this one issued as a proclamation in September.
Chief Justice Roberts acknowledged that Trump had made many statements concerning his desire to impose a “Muslim ban”. (NYTNS)
