Trump’s Travel Ban Resumes

December 7, 2017

The U.S. Supreme Court will allow the Trump administration to fully enforce its revised ban on allowing entry to the United States by residents of eight countries while legal challenges are heard by a federal appeals court.

Six of the countries — Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad and Somalia — are majority-Muslim nations. The other two are North Korea and Venezuela.

The director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, Omar Jadwat, said "President Trump's anti-Muslim prejudice is no secret. He has repeatedly confirmed it, including just last week on Twitter." While the White House has said it is not surprised: "The proclamation is lawful and essential to protecting our homeland. We look forward to presenting a fuller defense of the proclamation as the pending cases work their way through the courts."
