Travel ban partially reinstated, Trump calls it 'victory for national security'

Trump hails the decision as a "victory for national security".

The Supreme Court's criteria for who can be barred from entering the United States under President Donald Trump's travel ban may confuse the US officials overseas charged with implementing it and trigger a new round of lawsuits, experts said.

The ruling sets up a potential clash between the government and opponents of the ban over the strength of visitors' ties to the United States. She says the USA government will keep people traveling to the US and members of the travel industry informed "in a professional, organized and timely way". Those groups said they will be sending lawyers and monitors back to American airports, where the initial, immediate implementation of the ban in January caused chaos and confusion.

The U.S. Justice Department wants the Supreme Court to take up a years-long court fight with Microsoft. The ban is expected to take 72 hours to take effect.

"Tragically, most refugees will be unable to enter the United States for the next 90 days under this opinion", league co-founder James McConkie said in a statement. Justice Thomas made the commonsensical point, which only yesterday would never have needed saying, that the president's preserving of national security outweighs any hardship for those denied entry into the United States.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the administration was confident that it would prevail when the nation's top judges hear the case in full. International Refugee Assistance Project, the constitutional challenge to Executive Order 13,780, President Donald Trump's travel-restriction order.

The visa ban was supposed to last 90 days, the refugee ban 120.

"This bigoted ban can not be allowed to take effect again, and Congress needs to step in immediately to nullify it once and for all", said Margaret Huang, executive director of Amnesty International USA.

Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Justice Samuel Alito as well as Mr. Gorsuch, wrote that the government had shown that it is likely to win on the merits of its argument, and that interference with the president's responsibility is likely to inflict "irreparable harm". All his tasteless tweets, his braggadocio, his inconsistent commitment to conservative principles on spending, debt and trade (among other things) would pale in comparison to the fact that he was the Republican president that handed conservatives a solid 5-4 majority on the Supreme Court. President Trump has cut that number to 50,000. The plans were described by a senior official who was familiar with them, speaking on condition of anonymity because this person was not authorized to discuss them publicly by name. But challengers said no one from the affected countries had carried out attacks in the United States. Another involves whether the family of a Mexican teenager shot dead while standing on Mexican soil by a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Texas can sue for civil rights violations.

Asylum seekers from Iraq often have familial relationships or a work history with the USA military, said Fisher. The executive order also made waivers available for a foreign national seeking to enter the United States to resume work or study, visit a spouse, child or parent who is a USA citizen, or for "significant business or professional obligations".

However, the Court said that such relationships can not be established for the objective of avoiding the travel ban.

Depending on who you ask, Alaskans appear to be divided on the Monday announcement from the U.S. Supreme Court to re-instate the temporary travel ban from six countries, and refugee admissions to the United States.

However, a national advocacy group that pushes for strict enforcement of immigration laws disagreed that religious bias was involved.

"If there is not an answer to the question on the first day of oral arguments about why this ban is still in place, that is going to make the court much more skeptical about the government's reasons for having this ban", Fresco said. "It allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries and the refugee suspension to become largely effective".
