The Supreme Court gave President Trump a major victory Monday when it allowed his travel ban to take effect after weeks of legal challenges that had stalled its implementation.
The ban, which Trump has attempted to implement via executive order twice since his original ban got tied up in court, suspends travel into the U.S. for applicants from six Muslim-majority countries.
Two federal judges, one in Hawaii and the other in Maryland, in October blocked Trump’s third attempt to implement a ban on foreign nationals from six Muslim-majority countries. The appeals courts for those states will hear the cases later this week.
Trump’s third ban added North Korea, Venezuela, and Chad to the list of affected countries, but neither judge includedtravel from North Korea or Venezuela in their decisions stopping Trump’s ban. Foreigners traveling from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen are affected by the federal judges’ orders.
