Supreme Court Allows Trump Travel Ban
It’s good to go. The Supreme Court has ruled the latest version of President Donald Trump’s travel ban on citizens of six predominantly Muslim countries can go into effect. The ruling, which included two dissenting opinions, blocks most citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad — as well as Venezuela and North Korea — from traveling to the United States, even as the restriction remains challenged in lower courts. Meanwhile, appeals courts in San Francisco and Richmond, VA, are scheduled to hear arguments over the ban later this week.
