  • It Seems The Supreme Court Will Side With Trump’s Travel Bans

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif slammed the U.S. travel ban on travelers from six mainly Muslim countries in a tweet Monday. The second version of the travel ban, he wrote, "involved temporary procedures before the review was conducted and in the absence of a presidential determination concerning the adequacy of foreign governments' information-sharing and identity-management practices".

The US Supreme court has indicated that it will approve Trump's controversial travel ban, with only of the court's justices noting their disagreements with the policy.

Critics of Trump's travel restrictions insist that they make up the Muslim ban he promised during his campaign, and judges have seized on the president's public statements on Twitter and elsewhere in finding them unconstitutionally discriminatory. They say that sentiment was reinforced most recently by Trump's retweets of anti-Muslim videos.

President Trump met with the Libyan prime minister on December 1 to discuss counter-terrorism efforts. We continue to stand for freedom, equality, and for those who are unfairly being separated from their loved ones. The court said the ban can go into effect while challenges continue to be heard in lower courts. The travel policy also applies to travelers from North Korea and to some Venezuelan government officials and their families, but the lawsuits did not challenge those restrictions.

The SC order has not explained the reasons for its decision but nudged the lower courts that are hearing the arguments on the merit of the case to move faster.

The justices urged those courts to rule swiftly but offered no rationale for letting the full ban take effect in the meantime. The court's order said the appeals courts should decide the cases "with appropriate dispatch".

"We agree a speedy resolution is needed for the sake of our universities, our businesses and most of all, for people marginalized by this unlawful order", Hawaii Attorney General Douglas Chin said afterward.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor said they would have denied the administration's request.

The third version of Trump's travel ban, unveiled in September, drew immediate challenges in federal appeals courts in Richmond, Virginia and San Francisco, California.

There are some exceptions to the ban. Then, ruling on an earlier version of the travel order, the justices said the administration could refuse entry for visitors and immigrants from several Muslim nations, but not to families, travelers and others who had a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with person or entity in the United States". "This massive victory for American security comes just after President Trump boldly withdrew our country from the UN's risky, irresponsible Global Compact on Migration", it said.

White House spokesperson Hogan Gidley said the latest version of the travel ban is "lawful and essential to protecting our homeland".

The administration has said the ban is not discriminatory and pointed out that many Muslim-majority countries are unaffected by it.
