The Trump administration is lauding the Supreme Court’s recent decision approving parts of his executive order banning travel from six terror-prone nations.
“Today’s unanimous Supreme Court decision is a clear victory for our national security. It allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries and the refugee suspension to become largely effective,” the Trump team wrote in a statement Monday.
“As President, I cannot allow people into our country who want to do us harm. I want people who can love the United States and all of its citizens, and who will be hardworking and productive.”
“My number one responsibility as Commander in Chief is to keep the American people safe. Today’s ruling allows me to use an important tool for protecting our Nation’s homeland. I am also particularly gratified that the Supreme Court’s decision was 9-0.”
On Monday, the nation’s highest court ruled the ban could prohibit entry from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen unless there’s a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”
“All other foreign nationals are subject to the provisions of [the executive order],” the court wrote.
