SUPREME COURT REVIVES TRUMP TRAVEL BAN

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Updated: 11:01 a.m. on Monday, June 26, 2017

The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date.

Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S.

That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as participation in an education program. Mr. Trump is also free to halt refugee admissions worldwide, with the same exception for people who already have a connection to the U.S.

The justices said Mr. Trump is at the peak of his powers when acting on national security concerns in immigration matters when dealing with people who don’t already have a tie to the U.S. :snip:

SCOTUS reinstates substantially all of Trump Travel Order

 
Posted by William A. Jacobson  ▪  June 26, 2017 at 10:36am

This is a huge victory for Trump on stay application, Court to hear full case in October.

 

[BREAKING – This post will be updated]

In a per curiam Order (full embed at bottom of post), the Supreme Court agreed to hear the Trump Travel Order cases, and also substantially lifted the injunctions, with the exception of people seeking admission who already have a bona fide connection to the U.S.

This represents a huge win for Trump. The key element of his Second Travel Order (the one at issue on appeal) was to exercise his constitutional and statutory power to exclude persons from the U.S. The lower courts effectively took that power away, and substituted their own judgments as to security threats. With a relatively narrow exception, that power has been reinstated to the presidency, pending a full decision on the merits of the case.

SCOTUS allows most of Trump travel ban to go into effect - will hear oral arguments in the fall

By Robert Laurie -- American Politics

Today, the Supreme court agreed to hear oral arguments regarding President Trump’s travel ban that would impact people entering the U.S. from six predominantly-Muslim countries.  They’ll be hearing those oral arguments in the fall but, in the meantime, they’ve decided that most of the ban can go into effect.  It’s expected to take somewhere in the neighborhood of 72 hours for that to happen.   :snip:

Trump Could Make Travel Ban Permanent, Expand to More Countries

White House, observers say, is likely looking at widening restrictions following Supreme Court decision

by Margaret Menge | Updated 28 Jun 2017 at 11:00 AM

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch said this week that he suspects the White House is looking to expand the travel ban after the Supreme Court’s Monday decision, which allowed the temporary ban to go into effect with some exceptions.

The ban prohibits, for the next 90 days, the entry of people into the U.S. from six countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. It also suspends the refugee program for 120 days and limits the total number of refugees the U.S. will take in this year to 50,000.

Iraq, which was on the original order of countries from which entry was prohibited, was dropped in the revised order issued in March.     :snip:  http://www.lifezette.com/polizette/trump-could-make-travel-ban-permanent-expand-to-more-countries/
