The legality of President Trump’s travel ban is set to be decided once and for all. The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in April with a ruling to follow within two months.
Is the travel ban discriminatory? Does it violate U.S. immigration law? Multiple lower courts have attempted to slap down the ban. Liberals are just as anxious as Trump supporters to see how the court rules.
“We have always known this case would ultimately be decided by the United States Supreme Court. This will be an important day for justice and the rule of law. We look forward to the court hearing the case,” Hawaii Attorney General Douglas Chin said.
Hawaii is one of the state’s that initially challenged the ban.
Democrats may not like it, but President Trump has the right to determine who’s allowed into the country. The ban wasn’t born on a whim, he’s trying to ensure our safety. A lot of violent Muslim extremists would love to come to the U.S. right now. We need to be careful when taking refugees.
“After the current ban was announced,” the New York Post writes, “courts in Seattle and Maryland ruled it was unlawful, prompting the administration to appeal. Before the Supreme Court’s December order, the lower courts also had allowed the ban to go into effect for those with no close relatives in the United States or ‘formal, documented’ relationships with US-based entities such as universities and resettlement agencies.”
The conservative-majority court is likely to side with the president, although Democrats are pretending otherwise.
“The Supreme Court can and should put a definitive end to President Trump’s attempt to undermine the constitutional guarantee of religious equality and the basic principles of our immigration laws, including their prohibition of national origin discrimination,” ACLU lawyer Omar Jadwat said.
