US Supreme Court permitted the key parts of the travel ban to go into effect that is on the people of six Muslim majority countries. The president’s revised executive order blocks new visas for travellers from six majority-Muslim countries for ninety days and with this also suspends the U.S. refugee program for 120 days.

It is the first time the US Supreme Court has considered in on the travel ban, and a partial triumph for the Trump government, which has been struggling in the lower court rulings since lower courts have blocked the ban from taking effect.

Trump acknowledged the action taken by Supreme Courts as a triumph of national security. The March 6 order of travel ban from Libya, Iran, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan and Syria and a 120-day ban on all refugees was issued by Trump to avert terrorism in the country. The ban was blocked by lower courts as according to them the ban has dishonoured the central immigration law as well as it was said to be prejudiced against Muslims.

Various other ministries and groups had also defied and expressed discontent against the ban. Yemen’s Ministry official alleged, “We consider it will not assist in confronting terrorism and radicalism. But relatively it will raise the feeling among the nationals of affected countries that they are all being aimed . Especially given that Yemen is an active associate of the US in the war on terrorism and that there are combined operations against terrorist elements in Yemen”.

On the final day of its present term, Supreme Courts permitted a limited edition of the blocked refugee ban as well as courts also approved the oral arguments session in its next term in October.

According to Supreme Court, the ban will go into effect on foreign nationals who don’t have any legitimate link with a person or body in the country. Both bans will come into effect 72 hours after court’s verdict.

Trump reinstated a 5-4 majority with the selection of Neil Gorsuch. Gorsuch was among the three conservative justices who have approved the order to permit the parts of ban completely into effect. There were four Democratic justices and five Republican justices on the court. Apart from this four liberal justices were also present who were silent.

Clarence Thomas, a fellow conservative justice had written and warned regarding this ban that, “Today’s compromise will burden executive officials with the job of deciding – on risk of contempt – whether individuals from these six affected nations who desire to enter the United States have an adequate relationship with a person or entity in this country”.
