  • Trump travel ban survived because it doesn't ban all Muslims: Alan Dershowitz

Justice Sonia Sotomayor slammed the Supreme Court's decision to uphold President Donald Trump's travel ban in an impassioned dissenting opinion that contended the ruling failed to "safeguard" the principle of religious neutrality embedded in the First Amendment.

Roberts emphasized that the text of the challenged presidential Proclamation is neutral with respect to religion, and "has a legitimate grounding in national security concerns, quite apart from any religious hostility". The latest is the third iteration and places restrictions on travelers coming to the United States from Syria, Iran, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, North Korea, and Venezuela.

Tuesday's court decision means the ban will remain in effect. Booker also said he was still "emotionally raw" about his recent visit to the southern USA border, where more than 2,300 immigrant children were separated from their parents due to a Trump administration policy, which the president reversed last week amid widespread outcry.

Mr Trump also has moved to rescind protections for young immigrants, sometimes called Dreamers, brought into the United States illegally as children, intensified deportation efforts and pursued limits on legal immigration.

The current version dates from September and it followed what the administration has called a thorough review by several federal agencies, although it has not shared the review with courts or the public.

The government of Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro has said the travel ban is an act of psychological and political terrorism.
