President Donald Trump was a happy man on Monday after the U.S. Supreme Court approved his immigration ban.
Trump’s immigration ban was officially approved and will be in affect for 90 days, banning all immigration from six Muslim-majority nations.
Trump has long been trying to get his immigration executive order passed in an effort to clamp down on terrorism and to keep the United States safe.
“Today’s unanimous Supreme Court decision is a clear victory for our national security,” Trump said in a statement. “…As President, I cannot allow people into our country who want to do us harm. I want people who can love the United States and all of its citizens, and who will be hardworking and productive.”
He added: “My number one responsibility as Commander in Chief is to keep the American people safe. Today’s ruling allows me to use an important tool for protecting our Nation’s homeland.”
Here is what the Supreme Court said about their decision:
“An American individual or entity that has a bona fide relationship with a particular person seeking to enter the country as a refugee can legitimately claim concrete hardship if that person is excluded,” the court wrote. “As to these individuals and entities, we do not disturb the injunction. But when it comes to refugees who lack any such connection to the United States, for the reasons we have set out, the balance tips in favor of the Government’s compelling need to provide for the Nation’s security.”
Finally! Trump will now be able to keep our country safe from terrorism.
