Supreme Court OKs Travel Ban For Now

Supreme Court on Monday allowed full enforcement of Trump travel ban affecting residents of six Muslim countries, thus giving way to Trump's third attempt of banning the six countries, after his second attempt expired in fall this year.

Five of the court's seven justices granted a request from the President's administration to lift injunctions that had partially blocked the ban on travellers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

The challengers convinced the lower courts to put implementation on hold while they and government lawyers fight out the case.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor would have left the lower court orders in place. Lower federal courts in California, Hawaii, and Maryland ruled the ban was unconstitutional. The British prime minister, Theresa May, released a statement saying it was "wrong" for Trump to have tweeted the videos.

"President Trump's anti-Muslim prejudice is no secret. It's unfortunate that the full ban can move forward for now, but this order does not address the merits of our claims", said Omar Jadwat, director of the American Civil Liberties Union's Immigrants' Rights Project. The ban against the two countries took effect October 18.
