The Supreme Court will allow parts of Trump's travel ban to go into effect


The Supreme Court will allow parts of President Trump's travel ban to go into effect and will hear oral arguments in the fall on the ban, which affects citizens of six Muslim-majority countries.

The announcement came today when the Supreme Court released its ruling on the travel ban.

The case came to the Supreme Court months after two federal appellate courts ruled against the Trump travel policy. The policy stated that it will impose a 90-day travel ban on citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, said the travel ban was "rooted in religious animus" toward Muslims and highlighted Trump's campaign promise to impose a ban on Muslims entering the country.
The chief judge of the circuit, Roger L. Gregory, wrote that the ban "stands to cause irreparable harm to individuals across this nation."
Some think that Neil Gorsuch will vote in Trump's favor.
