ㅤ"President Trump’s travel ban is both legal and constitutional, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday, reversing a series of anti-Trump decisions by lower courts and delivering a landmark win for the White House.
ㅤThe 5-4 decision recognizes Mr. Trump has broad powers to block foreigners from entering the U.S., giving the administration a boost as it tries to fend off myriad lawsuits over its get-tough immigration policies.
ㅤAnd the court refused to hold Mr. Trump’s tweets and other campaign-era anti-Muslim comments against him now that he’s in office, saying judges usually take the President’s actions on their face. They ruled the travel ban was facially neutral, not the ‘Muslim ban’ his critics had said.
ㅤ’The text says nothing about religion,’ Chief Justice John G Roberts Jr. wrote for the majority."ㅤ
