Hundreds of people gathered in New York City's Foley Square on June 26 evening to decry the Supreme Court decision.

That will give President Donald Trump the chance to cement conservative control of the high court.

Trump critics were enraged, with one saying the ruling would go down as among the worst the high court has ever issued.

A furious Trump bashed the courts and his own Justice Department, but was forced to recast the ban again.

"Under these circumstances, the government has set forth a sufficient national security justification to survive rational basis review".

"We want a Supreme Court that rejects the subjective "living, breathing" constitutional philosophy which judicial activist have used to force liberal political policies on the country under the guise of law". President Trump said his nominee will come from that list.

"Taking all the evidence together, a reasonable observer would conclude that the proclamation was driven primarily by anti-Muslim animus", she added. That didn't sit well with Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. He also pointed out Mr. Trump had relied on countries singled out by the Obama administration and Congress in drawing up his list, suggesting it wasn't the president's feelings that motivated the specific policy. "President Trump has promised to only appoint justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade".

Kennedy, mild-mannered and professorial, is a traditional conservative who sometimes joined the liberal justices on key rulings, earning a reputation as the court's "swing" vote who heartened conservatives and liberals alike, depending on the issue. "The Court's decision today fails to safeguard that fundamental principle".

The ruling affirmed the broad presidential discretion over who is allowed to enter the United States.

Iraq and Sudan were on earlier versions of the ban.

Immigrant-rights advocates ran to the courts and earned an immediate halt to the policy, launching the last 17 months of litigation.

He nominated conservative judge Neil Gorsuch in 2017.

The Supreme Court held that the challengers had failed to show that the travel ban violated either US immigration law or the US Constitution's First Amendment prohibition on the government favoring one religion over another. The Supreme Court allowed it to go largely into effect in December while legal challenges continued.

Trump - a prolific Twitter user- has had his words turned against him in lawsuits over his administration's decisions to separate families at the border, end legal protections for young immigrants and revoke temporary status for people from particular countries. Sudan was dropped from the list.

One week into his presidency, he followed through with a campaign promise and announced a 90-day ban on travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
