Supreme Court Upholds President Trump’s Travel Ban

The Supreme Court ruled by a vote of 5 to 4 that President Trump has the authority to enact his travel ban, and that the state of Hawaii had “not demonstrated a likelihood of success on the merits of their constitutional claim,” on Tuesday.

“Under these circumstances, the Government has set forth a sufficient national security justification to survive rational basis review. We express no view on the soundness of the policy. We simply hold today that plaintiffs have not demonstrated a likelihood of success on the merits of their constitutional claim,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote.

“Because plaintiffs have not shown that they are likely to succeed on the merits of their claims, we reverse the grant of the preliminary injunction as an abuse of discretion. Winter v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc., 555 U. S. 7, 32 (2008). The case now returns to the lower courts for such further proceedings as may be appropriate.”
