  • The ruling concerned the third version of President Trump’s travel restriction, which was challenged on the grounds that it amounted to a “Muslim ban.”
  • In the 5-4 opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court finds that Trump’s travel restriction fell “squarely” within the president’s authority.
  • “The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Roberts says. “The text says nothing about religion.”

Supreme Court backs Trump travel ban from CNBC.

 

The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in favor of President Donald Trump‘s September order to restrict travel from several majority Muslim countries to the United States.

In the 5-4 opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court found that Trump’s travel restriction fell “squarely” within the president’s authority. The court rejected claims that the ban was motivated by religious hostility.

“The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Roberts wrote. “The text says nothing about religion.”

The case, Trump v. Hawaii, has been central to the administration’s travel policy, presenting a key test of the president’s campaign promise to restrict immigration and secure America’s borders.

Trump, who issued the ban in September, hailed the ruling in the case.
