Monday saw the Supreme Court give a substantial win to the Trump administration, when it comes to the travel ban. The court allowed full implementation of the latest version of the ban. Lower courts had ruled that people with “bona fide” family, education ties, or business ties were exempt from the ban. Now the administration can implement their policies when it comes to these people as well.
Six Muslim majority countries are affected by the ban and two non-Muslim majority countries are also affected. The Muslim majority countries are Chad, Yemen, Iran, Syria, Libya, and Somalia. The non-Muslim majority countries are North Korea and Venezuela. Only justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor indicated they would have denied the administration’s request. There are still case proceedings in lower courts to try to stop the travel ban. With this decision Monday by the court, a question comes to mind. Did the Supreme Court make the right decision in allowing the travel ban to be fully enforced?
Time covering the ruling on the travel ban by the Supreme Court:
Did the Supreme Court make the right decision in allowing the travel ban to be fully enforced? Did they enforce the law and make the country safer? Or, is this a horrible ruling of which they should be ashamed?
