Taeb said the travel ban, which comes at the backdrop of the "zero-tolerance policy" at the U.S. border that has seen more than 2,000 children taken away from their families, was a policy centered on "advancing a white nationalist agenda".
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California, along with the 4th Circuit in Virginia, upheld the district judges who had blocked Trump's order. If Hillary Clinton beats Donald Trump on November 8, 2016, there's no way that the vacancy caused by the death of Antonin Scalia is filled by Neil Gorsuch.
"We have been waiting for more than 15 years".
Mr Trump's ban has seen several iterations. You were in court when the decision was read. McConnell says it's a decision he's "comfortable with", even though he "didn't care for the earlier versions". "Wow!" a jubilant Trump tweeted after the ruling.
The travel ban case was argued on April 25, with the court's conservative majority signaling support for Trump's policy in a significant test of presidential powers. Afurious Trump bashed the courts and his own Justice Department, but was forced to recast the ban again.
Another top Republican, Sen. "At a minimum we have to make sure that we vet people coming into the country, we know who is coming in, we know where they're coming from - we just have to know who is coming here".
Sotomayor notes that Trump explicitly stated during his campaign that he would ban Muslims from entering the United States because, he said, they believe in Sharia law, which poses a threat to Americans and especially women.
He called it "a backward and un-American policy" that fails to improve national security. Allowing discrimination to emanate from our nation's highest office undermines the Constitution and our values as a nation.
The ruling is not, however, a blanket approval to ban immigration from wherever the president wants.
American-Muslims have decried a US Supreme Court ruling that upheld a controversial travel ban on five Muslim-majority countries, expressing anger and fear over what it will mean for them and their families.
It also bars most travel from North Korea, although few visas were issued to people from there anyway.
The American Civil Liberties Union said the decision will "go down in history as one of the Supreme Court's greatest failures". So this travel ban, by the third version, they had neutralized any anti-Muslim animus. Ellison is one of two Muslim members of Congress.

Those restrictions were not challenged in court.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote in a dissent that the decision was reached upon "misconstruing our legal precedent, and turning a blind eye to the pain and suffering the Proclamation inflicts upon countless families and individuals, many of whom are United States citizens".
The Supreme Court's ruling could also embolden the president to carry out further border and immigration restrictions, analysts said.
Protesters took to the streets from Washington to Los Angeles and NY to bemoan the decision, and oppose the administration's hardline approach on the southern border, where 2 000 children remain separated from their migrant parents. If the travel ban's objective is to ensure the security of the United States, then, by all means, keep the bad guys out. "And we should be setting a standard on this planet of what humanity should be about".
Writing for the court, Chief Justice John Roberts said that the government "has set forth a sufficient national security justification" to prevail.
Coons, of DE, is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. "The text says nothing about religion", Roberts said.

"It's unconstitutional as the Chinese Exclusion Act, it's unconstitutional as the incarceration of Japanese Americans and it's unconstitutional as the detainment of Latino immigrants", said Hakim, a Yemeni-American. She described the travel ban as a "discriminatory policy motivated by animosity toward a disfavored group" that is being justified via a "superficial claim of national security". Justice Sotomayor filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justice Ginsburg joined.
