The Supreme Court has allowed President Trump's ban on travelers from Islamic terrorist-infested nations to take full effect, marking a huge victory for the rule of law, common sense, and U.S. national security.
"This a substantial victory for the safety and security of the American people," U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said after the orders were handed down.
At 7 to 2, the vote Monday to lift two lower court stays hindering enforcement of Presidential Proclamation 9645 while several legal challenges inch their way through the judicial system, wasn't even close. Unsurprisingly, leftist Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor voted to deny the Trump administration's application to rescind the stays. As is its custom, the Supreme Court did not offer a rationale for its decision in the orders.
