WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld President Donald Trump's ban on travel from several predominantly Muslim countries, delivering to the president a political victory and rejecting a challenge that the ban had exceeded his authority. In a 5-4 vote, the court's conservatives said the president's power to secure the country's borders, delegated by Congress over decades of immigration lawmaking, was not undermined by Trump's history of incendiary statements about the dangers he said Muslims pose to the United States. Writing for the majority, Chief Justice John Roberts said Trump had ample statutory authority to make national security judgments in the realm of immigration. And Roberts rejected a constitutional challenge to Trump's third executive order on the matter, issued in September as a proclamation. But the court's liberals denounced the decision. In a passionate dissent from the bench, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the decision was no better than Korematsu v. United … [Read more...] about Trump travel ban affirmed by high court
Maddy Lauria and Esteban Parra and Jeff Neiburg and Brittany Horn Delaware News Journal Published 6:55 p.m. UTC Jun 26, 2018 A Supreme Court decision to uphold a President Trump's travel ban targeting predominantly Muslim countries has divided Delawareans.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld President Donald Trump's ban on travel from several mostly Muslim countries, rejecting a challenge that it discriminated against Muslims or exceeded his authority. The 5-4 decision is the court's first substantive ruling on a Trump administration policy. Trump commented on the ruling on Twitter with one word — "Wow!" — and later released a statement calling it both a "tremendous victory" and vindicating after months of criticism. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion, joined by his four conservative colleagues. Roberts wrote that presidents have substantial power to regulate immigration. He also rejected the challengers' claim of anti-Muslim bias. But he was careful not to endorse either Trump's provocative statements about immigration in general and Muslims in particular. "We express no view on the soundness of the policy," Roberts wrote. The travel ban has been fully in place since the court declined to block it in … [Read more...] about Supreme Court Upholds Trump Travel Ban, Rejecting Muslim Discrimination Claim
