Supreme Court upholds Trump travel ban

p50561article26133503whp.png

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

Conservatives See Donald Trump Reviving Constitutional Government

ㅤ”80 years of legislation and administrative actions that departed from the Constitution have never been reviewed by a conservative Supreme Court.
ㅤDuring these many years, most of the fights over liberty have been about the meaning and scope of enumerated rights in the Constitution, such as free speech, religious liberty, and the Second Amendment, rather than the enumerated powers in the Constitution, the specific authorities that government properly wields, and the limits to those powers.
ㅤNow a revolution in America’s form of government is underway. The jury is still out on whether conservativism can overcome establishment forces among congressional Republicans and in administrative agencies, but even if it does not, President Trump’s judicial appointments are creating the most conservative federal bench in decades, which in some cases may trump the elected branches.”
