Trump gets a win

Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

WASH­ING­TON: The US Supreme Court on Tues­day quashed an ap­peal that had blocked a now-ex­pired ver­sion of Don­ald Trump’s anti-im­mi­gra­tion de­cree. The de­ci­sion was mostly sym­bolic vic­tory to the Repub­li­can pres­i­dent be­cause the le­gal con­text had be­come out­dated; the sec­ond ver­sion of the de­cree pro­hib­ited for 90 days en­try into the United States to trav­el­ers from six Mus­lim-ma­jor­ity coun­tries. The March 6 de­cree, op­posed by the states of Mary­land and Hawaii, was sus­pended. Courts of ap­peal, re­spec­tively, in Rich­mond, Vir­ginia and San Fran­cisco, California, up­held the sus­pen­sion de­ci­sion in May and June. On Tues­day, the Supreme Court quashed the ap­peal de­ci­sion on the Mary­land rul­ing, with the sus­pen­sion in Hawaii still valid but its days likely num­bered. The White House at the end of Septem­ber is­sued a new de­cree that per­ma­nently bars na­tion­als of seven coun­tries from cross­ing US bor­ders, in the in­ter­est of US na­tional se­cu­rity.
