5 questions about the Supreme Court's travel ban ruling

Ramping up for midterm elections, President Trump embraced yesterday's U.S. Supreme Court travel ban ruling as a political victory as much as a legal one - as Democrats, activists and even five of the court's justices decried statements Trump made about the ban as anti-religious.

Chief Justice Roberts wrote that presidents have frequently used their power to talk to the nation "to espouse the principles of religious freedom and tolerance on which this Nation was founded".

The heart of the travel ban puts restrictions on people who want to come to the USA from Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Yemen.

President Donald Trump has weighed in with his official response to the Supreme Court upholding his third attempt at a travel ban that blocks Muslims from entering the country.

Opponents of the U.S. Supreme Court travel ban decision call on Congress to step in at a rally in Detroit on Tuesday evening.

Mr Trump reacted to his major victory by tweeting: "SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN".

President Trump has said the court upheld the authority of the president to defend the national security of the U.S. The third travel ban, affirmed by the Supreme Court today, is narrower than the travel ban Washington defeated past year.

The ban allows for waivers on a case-by-case basis, but applicants who can not afford an attorney to go through the waiver process will likely be unable to immigrate to the United States, immigration advocates say. "It is instead the significance of those statements in reviewing a Presidential directive, neutral on its face, addressing a matter within the core of executive responsibility".
