High Court OKs Trump's Ban on Muslim States; Ends Lower Court Ruling,OKs Trump's Authority

The U.S. Supreme Court today (June 26, 2017) allowed the Trump administration to enforce its 90-day ban on travelers from six predominantly Muslim countries, overturning lower court orders that blocked the ban, according to the Yahoo News website.

The decision is a victory for President Donald Trump in the biggest legal controversy of his young presidency.

The justices will hear arguments in the case in the fall.

Several lower courts had ruled that the travel ban was illegal because it discriminated against Muslims, but the Supreme Court decided that by virtue of the office of President, Trump has the authority to issue such a ban in order to safeguard the national security of the United States.
