US Supreme Court backs Donald Trump's 'Muslim travel ban'

Show Caption

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks at the Utah State Capitol, where he announced big cuts to Utah's sprawling wilderness national monuments, in Salt Lake City, Dec. 4.

The United States Supreme Court has just ruled that President Trump's immigration travel ban against six majority-Muslim countries can take full effect, while legal challenges against the latest version are still tied up in courts.

The justices, with two dissenting votes out of nine, granted the administration's request to lift injunctions imposed by lower courts blocking the ban.

Lower courts in two separate challenges had partially blocked the ban.

Richmond's Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, the entire court, will hear arguments Friday. Only Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor declined to sign on to the orders staying the Fourth and Ninth Circuits.

Some of the language attorneys have used in support of exemptions for those travelers with bona fide relationships in the United States stems from the Supreme Court's own decision last June on the administration's second travel ban, the Washington Post reports.

With the order, the third version of the travel ban, promulgated in September after an interagency review of the dangers posed by the different countries included, will go back into effect while the case on the merits works its way through the court system.
