Supreme Court Allows Muslim Travel Ban to Take Effect


The United States Supreme Court has lifted two injunctions against the so-called “Muslim ban,” the executive order than bans travel from six majority-Muslim nations, allowing the ban to take full effect while lawsuits against it make their way through the courts, according to multiple media reports.

The ruling means all travelers from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad without “bona fide” connections to the United States can be banned from entering the United States while the cases proceed.

The Trump Administration insists the travel ban does not target Muslims, but is intended to keep the United States safe from terrorism. The Supreme Court decision to allow the ban to take effect comes days after President Donald Trump retweeted three misleading and incendiary anti-Muslim videos from a far-right hate group in Britain.
