The Supreme Court will have the final judicial say on whether the Trump administration can enforce its proposed travel ban.
As you’ll recall, the travel ban was originally set to last 90 days and only pertained to entry from people in six countries where Islamic terrorism is rampant.
The purpose was to allow time to implement more effective screening measures to protect the country from the type of Muslim extremist that have invaded Europe.
According to CNN, the Court is likely to act on the issue before the end of its current term, which expires at the end of June. While a final decision on the questions would probably not occur until the fall, the Court has been asked to issue a stay on the lower courts actions stopping the ban.
We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!

If the Court does not permit the ban to take effect immediately, it creates a risk of a terrorist attack occurring in the US that otherwise could have been prevented.
