After facing stiff opposition from the courts, there’s some relief for US President Donald Trump, as the US Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the 90-day travel ban imposed on travellers from six Muslim majority countries. This ban was imposed by the Trump government citing increased security risk. The ban was earlier banned by the lower courts, which was considered a big setback for the Trump government. It may be recalled that Trump had said last week that the ban will come into effect within 72 hours of being approved by the top court. Now, that the US Supreme Court has reinstated the travel ban, the US government has full powers to ban people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen to enter United States for 90 days.
The travel ban was a major topic of discussion during the US Presidential elections. Experts said that it was one of the many things that helped Trump win the US Presidential elections. The stamp of approval by the US Supreme Court is being considered a big victory for the Trump administration, especially after being blocked by two Federal courts earlier.
