Sotomayor, in Dissent, Takes On Trump Travel Ban Tweets

The ruling was one of a string of 5-4 decisions this term in which the justices on the right reasserted themselves, after the addition of Trump-nominated Justice Neil Gorsuch past year restored a conservative majority.

Look, I get why the travel ban-revised after the original one was blocked by the courts-is so controversial, given that it's aimed at majority Muslim countries.

On Tuesday, he hailed the ruling as "a moment of profound vindication" following "months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country".

Prepared in secret, the sudden order created chaos as hundreds of travelers were blocked at airports - with protesters warning that Trump was banning Muslims in violation of the US Constitution's religious freedom protections.

The decision, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, argues "that restricting entry of aliens who could not be vetted with adequate information was in the national interest", and that the Immigration and Nationality Act gave Trump the authority to determine "whether and when to suspend entry, whose entry to suspend, for how long, and on what conditions". "We express no view on the soundness of the policy", Roberts added. The current ban covers five Muslim-majority nations - Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen - as well as North Korea and some government officials from Venezuela.

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said in a statement that she disagreed with the Supreme Court's decision, promising that her office will "continue to work with leaders in government and immigrant communities across Massachusetts to protect everyone's rights and stand up to hate in all of its forms". In the lead-up to Tuesday's highly anticipated opinion, Trump's tweets were picked apart by lower courts, and his December 2015 reading of a campaign promise-"the total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering" the United States-re-aired on a loop on cable news.

If you're a legal U.S. resident or American citizen and have family from one of the affected countries, close relatives might still be able to come to the US. He dismissed the many anti-Muslim statements Trump has made as "extrinsic statements".

As part of Tuesday's ruling, Roberts officially repudiated the 1944 internment ruling and he rejected the comparison, saying that the war-era practice was "objectively unlawful and outside the scope of presidential authority".

The third-ranking House Republican, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, calls it a "huge victory" for Trump's plan to strengthen national security "by keeping terrorists out of America".

Civil rights groups and immigrant advocates denounced the ruling but vowed to fight on.

In his trousers pocket he also had pepper spray and in his backpack duct tape, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. The mother then locked the door from the basement steps to the main house after she and her daughter ran upstairs.


The American Civil Liberties Union compared Tuesday's ruling to the 1944 Supreme Court decision that allowed the federal government to imprison Japanese Americans, calling both moves "shameful chapters of USA history".

"Under these circumstances, the government has set forth a sufficient national security justification to survive rational basis review", the court said. Legal analysts say the order isn't very clear, and within hours, courts - including a federal judge in Boston - shoot it down. Chad was originally on the list but it was recently removed after having met baseline security requirements. But their arrival was called off after Trump issued his ban and there has been little movement in their case.

It's not clear how or if the travel ban will affect the Conrad 30 J-1 visa waiver, which allows worldwide medical students to stay in the United States after residency for three years if they work in a rural or urban community where there is a physician shortage. Trump had also imposed a temporary ban on refugees along with earlier versions of the travel ban, but he did not reimpose a refugee ban when the last one expired in the fall.

The Supreme Court's ruling could also embolden the president to carry out further border and immigration restrictions, analysts said.

The executive order banned travel from seven countries, five of which were Muslim-majority.
