Unanimous Supreme Court decision Allows Travel Ban To Take Effect

Via Billy

The Supreme Court announced Monday that it will review lower court rulings blocking enforcement of President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugee and migrant entry, and stayed injunctions barring the order’s enforcement.

The announcement is a major victory for the president, whose signature immigration policy has been stymied repeatedly by the federal courts.

The justices consolidated two travel ban cases from the 4th and 9th Circuits, and scheduled oral arguments for the first session of the Court’s next term, which begins in October. They also partially vacated several lower court injunctions barring enforcement of the order’s travel ban provision, which prohibits the entry of foreign nationals from six countries with high instances of terrorism.


  1. Now the Donald can really pretend that he is dealing with in-migration ?

  2. There needs to be a moratorium on immigration which should satisfy the courts since it would apply equally to all foreign nationals seeking to enter our country. --Ron W

    1. I doubt if Trump would go for more now since he has what he really wanted.
