Hartford Response To Supreme Court Ruling: No Muslim Ban Ever

Supreme Court Upholds Donald Trump’s Travel Ban 3.0, Says POTUS ‘Possesses An Extraordinary Power’

The 5-4 decision was a big victory for Trump in the court's first substantive ruling on one of his administration's policies.

"Overturning Korematsu to uphold a Muslim ban is a vile insult to the Japanese Americans who were interned during WWII", freelance journalist Mari Uyehara tweeted. With the frequency of Trump's broadsides against the justice system and the rule of law, it shouldn't be long at all. For example, the president could not use the ruling to summarily deport thousands of people living in the USA who come from particular countries, since the ruling deals only with people trying to enter the US, according to Cornell Law School professor Stephen Yale-Loehr.

Supreme Court lawyer Neal Katyal, who represented the state of Hawaii and other challengers in the Supreme Court case involving Trump's travel ban, said he's disappointed with the decision.

Chaos reigned at airports after Trump signed his initial ban against immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries during his first week in office in January 2017.

In a 5-4 decision, the court ruled that the president has the Constitutional authority under US immigration laws to limit travel from foreign countries on over national security concerns, as the Trump administration has repeatedly argued.

The court's decision came in the third version of the ban, which affects almost 150 million residents of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

The decision relates to Trump's third travel ban, which applies to travelers from North Korea and five mainly Muslim nations - Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen - or about 150 million people.

Many would have also argued that the Japanese exclusion orders were "facially neutral" and we remind the court that Executive Order 9066 did not specify Japanese or Japanese Americans and was used to target small numbers of Germans and Italians. Among West Wing aides and outside Trump advisers, there was a feeling of satisfaction that after months of what they viewed as overreaction in the media and from liberals, the highest court in the land found their policy to be legally sound.

"While this decision doesn't address the separate and equally harmful ban on refugees, it cruelly traps people in conflict-afflicted countries and prevents them from seeking safety in the U.S. or being reunited with family", CNN quoted Mace as saying in a statement. And as you point out, they did add two non-Muslim countries to the list - North Korea and Venezuela.

President Donald Trump has said the travel ban is needed to protect the United States against attacks by Islamist militants.

While the federal Immigration and Nationality Act allows the president to restrict entry of foreigners whose presence "would be detrimental to the interests of the United States", opponents argued the ban violated another provision of the law that said no person can be "discriminated against in the issuance of an immigrant visa because of the person's race, sex, nationality, place of birth, or place of residence".

The travel ban was implemented haphazardly at the start of the Trump administration and faced repeated setbacks from the USA legal system.

The Trump administration has granted waivers to less than 2 percent of visa applicants exempting them from President Donald Trump's travel ban on several mostly Muslim countries.

Immigration has been one of the thorniest issues in American politics for decades and the Trump administration has rolled back its "zero tolerance" border policy that had triggered global outcries over family separations.

Although Roberts' majority opinion repudiated Korematsu, the court ignored its crucial lesson. As Justice Sonia Sotomayor pointed out in dissent, had the Court examined this evidence, it would have been obvious that the "new window dressing" of national-security concerns "cannot hide an unassailable fact: The words of the President and his advisers create the strong perception that the proclamation is contaminated by impermissible discriminatory animus against Islam and its followers".

President Trump hailed the decision as "a tremendous victory for the American people and for our Constitution" in remarks at the White House, according to Reuters.

The Trump administration has not publicly discussed any plans for future travel bans targeting additional countries.
