WASHINGTON, D.C. — It’s a major victory for national security and the Trump Administration.
On Tuesday morning, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a 5-4 opinion in the Donald Trump in Trump v. Hawaii “travel ban” case, siding with the President.
The concerned President Trump‘s September executive order restricting travel to-and-from a number of countries known for terrorist activity. Detractors had claimed it was an unconstitutional anti-Muslim measure since most of the countries on the list are majority Muslim.
Chief Justice John Roberts disagreed (click here to find the opinion).
“The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” wrote Roberts. “The text says nothing about religion.”
