'Wow!' Trump claims victory and vindication over travel ban

The five conservative Supreme Court justices who ruled for the government in Trump v. Hawaii - the travel ban case - cited many precedents for their decision.

"The forcible relocation of USA citizens to concentration camps, exclusively and explicitly on the basis of race, is objectively unlawful and outside the scope of presidential authority", he wrote.

In her rebuttal, Sotomayor tried invoking Korematsu vs. Tuesday, the Supreme Court told the president he is right and that courts will not stop him from subjecting migrants to discrimination and abuses that this administration could not impose on citizens.

Mr Roberts said the policy had "a legitimate grounding in national security concerns", while insisting the court would express "no view on the soundness" of the travel ban.

Abdi - who is a USA citizen but is originally from Somalia, one of the countries affected by the travel ban - had his own difficulty traveling back to the United States after a trip to Africa a year ago.

The Trump administration said that during the trial period it had evaluated how well foreign nations shared information with the U.S. It then determined that the eight final nations selected did not have adequate information sharing procedures in place. "And there's no guarantee that the idea that Korematsu was wrong is one of them".

Soldiers, a small marching band and civilians lined up near a flagpole outside barracks at Manzanar Japanese-American internment camp, or War Relocation Authority center, near Independence, California, during World War II. "But the issue before us is not whether to denounce the statements".

In the Korematsu decision, the court ruled that the US had not violated the constitutional rights of Japanese-American citizen Fred Korematsu by interning him during World War II. With help from the American Civil Liberties Union, he appealed the verdict to the Supreme Court.

The travel ban, which the Supreme Court allowed to take effect in December, has been widely criticised by refugee and human rights groups.

The chief justice wasn't quite finished and nearly took the opportunity to overrule the Korematsu decision-but stopped just short of doing so.

In 1988, Congress passed a law, signed by President Ronald Reagan, providing $20,000 in reparations to each surviving detainee.

214 (1944). Whatever rhetorical advantage the dissent may see in doing so, Korematsu has nothing to do with this case.

Meanwhile, 17 states, including NY and California, are suing the Trump administration to force it to reunite the thousands of immigrant children and parents it separated at the border, as the legal and political pressure mounted to reconnect families more quickly.

Lawsuits over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program have cited Trump's statement referring to some Mexican immigrants as rapists as evidence that the decision to end it was motivated by prejudice against Mexicans. "He did the same thing".

The Supreme Court has upheld President Donald Trump's ban on travel from several mostly Muslim countries, rejecting a challenge that it discriminated against Muslims or exceeded his authority.

Trump went on to chide his perceived enemies for having called his travel ban unconstitutional and an overreach of his presidential powers. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court ruled that President Trump's travel ban was constitutional.

Roberts was joined in the majority by Justices Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch. We can not allow for these decisions to be upheld. Just as the government argued without evidence that Japanese Americans were disloyal and couldn't be trusted, she argued that the travel ban is based on stereotypes of Muslims as a unsafe ethnic-religious group rather than legitimate national security concerns.
