President Trump responded to the Supreme Court announcement Monday that it will hear the case on his executive order banning travel to the U.S. from six predominantly-Muslim countries, calling it “a clear victory.”
“Today’s unanimous Supreme Court decision is a clear victory for our national security,” Trump said in a statement. “It allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries and the refugee suspension to become largely effective. 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.”
POTUS went on: “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. I am also particularly gratified that the Supreme Court’s decision was 9-0.”
The court will hear the case in October. Until then, it will allow a watered-down version of the ban to go into effect for foreign nationals without “bona fide relationship with any person or entity in the United States.”
That's right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that won't help us protect our people!
