Washington / The US Supreme Court on Monday ruled to allow President Donald Trump’s travel ban on citizens of six Muslim-majority nations to enter fully into effect.

In a brief ruling that appears to hand a significant victory for the Trump administration, the high court approved a motion by the US government to eliminate the restrictions imposed by lower courts on the latest version of the Sept. 24 travel ban on citizens from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

At the time of its entry into force, on Oct. 18, two judges – first, one in Hawaii, and later another in Maryland – blocked the implementation of the ban, ruling that it could unfairly be targeting a religious minority and, thus, violating the Constitution’s First Amendment, which protects freedom of religion.

However, those judges allowed the ban to go into effect for citizens from North Korea and Venezuela, countries where very few Muslims live and where, as a result, it could not be proved that Trump was intending to discriminate against members of that religion, the argument used in the case of the other six nations.

The restrictions related to Venezuela do not apply to the entire population there, but rather only to top government officials and their “immediate” families.

The Supreme Court did not announce the reasoning guiding the nine justices in reaching their decision, but it did say that it expects lower courts to review as soon as possible the legal challenges to the ban that they have pending to be able to have a definitive decision on the federal level.

Progressive Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor said that they were in partial disagreement with the high court’s overall ruling.

A spokesman for the White House, Hogan Gidley, said the government “is not surprised” by the decision adopted by the Supreme Court because they believe the veto is “legal” and “basic to protect” the US. of the risks of terrorism.

“We will present a more complete defense of the veto as pending cases make their way through the courts,” he added.

Precisely this week, they are scheduled to hold hearings to study the legality of the immigration veto at the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, based in Richmond, Virginia, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco, California.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), for its part, on which the control of airports depends, welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court.

“The government’s common-sense travel restrictions to countries that do not meet basic security standards and do not share information with us about terrorists and criminals are designed to defend the nation,” said DHS spokesman Tyler Houlton.
