Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Prolonging The Trump Travel Ban
It was on Monday that the Supreme Court proceeded to issue its ruling regarding the Trump administration’s travel ban. It ruled in favor of letting the travel ban go into effect despite the fact that the legal challenges against it have been raging.
The administration received the news in utter excitement and the court has hastily gotten in touch with the appeals court requesting it to make a determination in a swift manner. This court will be the one to determine whether or not the ban was unlawful.
Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg outlined that they had the opportunity to deny request by the administration to allow the latest ban to go into effect. The administration sees the court’s orders as a leeway for it to enforce its new restrictions on travel from eight nations.
Sources indicate that quite a significant number of citizens from the predominantly Muslim countries will be affected. These countries include Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, North Korea and Chad. Asides from these, even some citizens from Venezuela might end being affected.
A govern official has outlined that the different restrictions differ in terms of details. However, in many of the cases the citizens will be barred from immigrating to United States on a permanent basis. A section of them will also be barred from studying, working or vacationing there.
Iran won’t be suffering in an adverse manner considering that it will be allowed to continue sending its citizens on student exchanges. But the one thing it is well aware of is the fact that those citizens will be subjected to high end screening. On the other hand Somalis have been exempted from the group allowed to emigrate to the United States though under extra screening they might still make their way into the U.S.
Lawyers for Hawaii have condemned the decision by the justices. One of them opined, “Less than six months ago, this court considered and rejected a stay request indistinguishable from the one the government now presses. But the justification for that dramatic relief has only weakened.”
