Trump hails Supreme Court's backing of travel ban on Muslim-majority countries

But Chief Justice John Roberts said Tuesday the Supreme Court "may look behind the face of the Proclamation" barring travelers from five countries with overwhelmingly Muslim populations, though he adopted a relatively easy standard for the administration to justify its travel policy.

President Donald Trump says the Supreme Court's decision in favor of his ban on travel from several mostly Muslim countries is a great victory for the American Constitution.

"In its majority opinion, the Supreme Court discusses Korematsu v".

Airbnb has vowed to fight Donald Trump's travel ban after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld restrictions on people coming to America from Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Somalia and Yemen.

KELLY: That version of the travel ban continued making its way through the courts.

"The president's statements, which the majority utterly fails to address in its legal analysis, strongly support the conclusion that the proclamation was issued to express hostility toward Muslims and exclude them from the country", the dissent read.

Roberts wrote that presidents have substantial power to regulate immigration.

INSKEEP: Total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States is the way the president phrased it then.

"What happened to us should never happen again", he told CNN in an interview.

Mr Trump can now claim vindication after lower courts had blocked his travel ban announced last September, as well as two prior versions, in legal challenges brought by the state of Hawaii and others. In April, the US lifted travel restrictions on Chad.

"The Court's decision today will only embolden those who seek to end our proud legacy as a welcoming nation", the organization said. The four liberals on the court - justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor - cast the dissenting votes.

The dissent also states that "a reasonably observer would conclude that [the ban] was motivated by anti-Muslim animus".

The worst attacks in the United States since the Al-Qaeda hijackings on September 11, 2001 have been committed either by Americans or immigrants from countries not affected by the travel ban. He was chosen by Trump after Republicans in the Senate refused to grant a hearing to federal appeals Judge Merrick Garland who was nominated by Obama in March 2016.

McConnell's "Team Mitch" campaign team tweeted the photo of him with Gorsuch after the ruling.

It also blocks travelers from North Korea and some Venezuelan government officials and their families.

The ban allows for waivers on a case-by-case basis, but applicants who can not afford an attorney to go through the waiver process will likely be unable to immigrate to the United States, immigration advocates say.

The ruling is not, however, a blanket approval to ban immigration from wherever the president wants. Trump issued his first version just a week after taking office, though it was quickly halted by the courts.

The case has been central to the White House immigration policy, presenting a key test of Trump's campaign promise to restrict immigration and secure US borders. Trump said the ruling follows "months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country".

In one instance, she pointed out the president's November 2017 re-tweets of three anti-Muslim propaganda videos.

The Supreme Court ruling marks the first major high court decision on a Trump administration policy.

But the travel ban has been widely criticised by refugee and human rights groups. Almost 5,000 were found "ineligible" for visas for other, unspecified reasons unrelated to the travel ban. 'Public universities remain deeply concerned about this misguided travel ban and the message it sends to all worldwide students and scholars who have always been drawn to USA universities to undertake studies, conduct research and teach students at our world-leading institutions'.
