Supreme Court Upholds Travel Ban

The highest court in the land handed President Trump his victory on Tuesday morning.

The 5-4 decision ends the fierce fight in the legal system though it is doubtful the moral battle will end.

The court held the challengers had failed to show that the ban violates one of two things. U.S. immigration law or the First Amendment prohibition on government religious favoritism. In the writing for the court, Chief Justice John Roberts said that the government “has set forth a sufficient national security justification” to prevail.

“We express no view on the soundness of the policy,” Roberts added.

With the ban being upheld, this also means Trump can add additional countries as he sees fit.
