Dingell reacts to Supreme Court upholding Trump's Muslim Ban

  • In Win For Donald Trump US Supreme Court Backs Controversial Travel Ban

The lawsuit marked the first of many legal battles the Trump administration's travel ban faced.

Still, Frenzen and other experts cautioned that the standard the Supreme Court adopted in its 5-4 ruling was highly deferential to the president.

Ellison earlier this month announced he is leaving Congress to run for attorney general of Minnesota.

During the campaign, Trump infamously called "for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on". The Trump Administration chose not to appeal our victory to the Supreme Court, and paid our court costs.

But, in her scathing dissent, Judge Sotomayor said that the court's majority accepted the government's invitation to set aside comments by President Trump he made against the Muslims, a news report said.

The ban in large part came in response to the demands of members of the Venezuelan community in South Florida, who asked the White House to take action against the Venezuelan government, which many consider to be a dictatorship. "And we should be setting a standard on this planet of what humanity should be about".

He then called the ruling "a tremendous victory for the American people and the constitution".

Coons, of DE, is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.


Roberts noted that, "The text says nothing about religion". NPR White House correspondent Scott Horsley is going to begin our coverage.

"President Trump's common sense policy banning unvetted travel from nations with a history of serious problems stopping terrorism does just that, and is a strong step in the right direction for our country's national security after years of open borders and weakness under the Obama administration", Scalise said.

Trump tweeted Tuesday: "SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN".

Mr Trump tweaked the order after the 9th USA circuit court of appeals in San Francisco refused to reinstate the ban.

The president has "undoubtedly fulfilled" the requirement under the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act that the entry of the targeted aliens "would be detrimental to the interests of the United States", Roberts wrote. He also rejected the challengers' claim of anti-Muslim bias.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's campaign team gloated on Twitter following the ruling on Tuesday by posting a picture of him with Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch - a not-so-subtle reference to McConnell blocking former President Barack Obama's Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland in 2016.

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion, joined by his four conservative colleagues.
