Supreme Court Upholds Trump Travel Ban

The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the controversial travel ban imposed several months ago by President Donald Trump against Muslim-majority nations.

The court’s 5-4 decision rejected arguments that the ban was prompted by discrimination against Muslims.

The ban “is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the ruling. “The text says nothing about religion.”

Trump quickly praised the ruling, tweeting, “SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!”

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the first Muslim elected to Congress, told CNN the court’s decision to uphold Trump’s travel ban will end up in “the dustbin of history.”
