Supreme Court Upholds Travel Ban in Trump v. Hawaii Ruling AFP 26 Jun 2018

The Supreme Court just quietly overturned a decision that upheld the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II as part of a ruling upholding President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban that primarily targets majority-Muslim countries.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled to uphold a thinner version of Trump's original travel ban.

"The president's travel ban doesn't make us safer, and the Supreme Court's ruling doesn't make it right", Schumer said in a statement. "Wow!", he wrote on Twitter. The court majority writes such a ban is "squarely within the scope of Presidential authority under the INA" (Immigration and Nationality Act). He says he'll introduce legislation to make clear that the USA does "not tolerate discrimination based on religion or nationality".

"It leaves undisturbed a policy first advertised openly and unequivocally as a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" because the policy now masquerades behind a facade of national-security concerns", Justice Sotomayor wrote.

This was partially in response to the dissenting opinion from Justice Sonia Sotomayor, which contended the ruling on Trump's travel ban has "stark parallels" with the "reasoning" behind the decision made regarding Korematsu.

Under the ban, nationals from five majority Muslim countries, Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Yemen, can not travel to the United States. In this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians, we must properly vet those coming into our country.

"The American government has not learned from the lesson of my grandmother, from the lesson of my grandfather, they have not learned", said protester Tessa Watanabe. According to the administration, the countries subject to the ban did not have sophisticated-enough identity-management and information-sharing practices for US authorities to figure whether or not their nationals pose a threat to the USA - and that is the reason for the immigration pause. NPR White House correspondent Scott Horsley is going to begin our coverage.

While the legal battle is not entirely over yet - the Supreme Court sent the case back to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for a final decision - it is unlikely that any significant change will be made to the ban, which is in its third iteration since Donald Trump took over in January 2017. Issued in September, the latest version was open-ended, dropped Sudan, and added North Korea and a selection of Venezuelan officials.

He later called the decision "a moment of profound vindication" and a "tremendous victory for the American people and the Constitution".

"The Supreme Court has upheld the clear authority of the President to defend the national security of the US".

The rules developed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, working with the Department of State, base the U.S. decisions on specific criteria, all centered in a nation's ability to effectively manage and share information about citizen identity and national security risk.

The court will take up the Constitutionality of the ban in the fall, but by that time the issue will be moot.
