Trump Praises Supreme Court Decision on Travel Ban: ‘Clear Victory’
President Donald Trump praised the Supreme Court’s decision on Monday to review the legality of his temporary ban on travelers from six Muslim-majority countries and all refugees, and to allow it to be partly implemented in the meantime.
“Today’s unanimous Supreme Court decision is a clear victory for our national security,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House, adding: “Today’s ruling allows me to use an important tool for protecting our Nation’s homeland.”

More specifically, the Court consolidated the various cases on the travel ban for hearing in October. Meanwhile, the court relieved the temporary injunctions from the lower courts regarding people attempting to enter the country who “lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.” Other injunctions, however, were left in place by the Court. Effectively, this means that the Court tossed the cases brought by universities attempting to claim that foreign nationals who might want to enter the United States must be allowed to do so, but left in place specific injunctions against preventing importation of relatives of American citizens from abroad.
