White House 'not surprised' by travel ban ruling — The Latest

The justices, with two dissenting votes, said Monday that the policy can take full effect even as legal challenges against it make their way through the courts. The San Francisco-based 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals and the 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, will be holding arguments on the legality of the ban this week.

In a 7-2 ruling, justices granted his administration's request to lift two injunctions imposed by lower courts that had partially blocked the ban - the third version of a policy that Trump first sought to implement a week after taking office.

The ban applies to travellers from the mainly Muslim countries of Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. That included grandparents, cousins and other relatives whom Trump had sought to keep out.

"Justice Ginsburg and Justice Sotomayor would deny the application".

In the majority opinion, the remaining justices said they expected the lower courts to reach decisions "with appropriate dispatch".

Unlike the earlier bans that were temporary, the latest ban is "an indefinite one, deepening and prolonging the harms a stay would inflict", the brief submitted by Washington lawyer Neal K. Katyal who is representing Hawaii stated. While the restrictions differ slightly by country, most citizens of these countries will be prohibited from emigrating to the US permanently and many will be prevented from studying, working, or visiting the US.

The court's decision is not a final ruling on the travel ban, but the action indicates the high court might eventually approve it. If the Court grants the petition for a writ of certiorari, this order shall terminate when the Court enters its judgment.

The Houthis' top leader said Saleh paid the price for his "treason", accusing him of betraying their alliance to side with the Saudi-backed coalition. Omar Jadwat, director of the American Civil Liberties Union Immigrants' Rights Project, said in a statement following the the decision.

Mr Trump unleashed a string of tweets over the weekend in which he criticised the FBI.

President Donald Trump waves as he boards Air Force One. "Federal judges are not". It's unfortunate that the full ban can move forward for now, but this order does not address the merits of our claims.

And the government says that the difference here is that there are non-Muslim countries who are on the list.
