BREAKING: Supreme Court Upholds Trump Travel Ban

June 26, 2018

In a just-released decision, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to uphold the Trump Administration’s 3rd travel ban (with the first two having been struck down by various court challenges). This ban had been in effect since December, when the court ordered that the ban could take effect even while court challenges to its legality were pending. Those challenges have now been exhausted, giving the Trump Administration significant new authority to make sweeping decisions about who can and cannot enter the country.

As a reminder, this iteration of the ban prevents most citizens from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and North Korea from entering the U.S., with citizens of Iraq and Venezuela also facing higher levels of scrutiny.
