Minnesota's Muslim community reacts to U.S. Supreme Court travel ban decision

28 June 2018

Yes, a man they thought risky and demagogic was in the White House but the other branches of government - Congress and the courts - were providing an effective brake on executive power. Trump told reporters Wednesday that he plans to nominate a justice from that list.

The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling upholding President Donald Trump's travel ban may have a silver lining for people fighting other administration immigration policies after the 5-4 majority ruled that the president's prior comments about Muslims were not off limits when evaluating the ban, legal experts said.

Justice Kennedy, 81, will retire on 31 July, per his letter to Mr Trump.

While Kennedy's replacement will not change the numerical ideological balance on the court, Trump could appoint a justice who would be more staunchly conservative than Kennedy and less likely to occasionally side with the court's liberal wing.

On Wednesday, in an interview with Politico hours before Kennedy's announcement, McConnell, 76, said keeping the seat vacant was the "most consequential decision I've ever made".

Justice Anthony Kennedy is stepping down from the U.S. Supreme Court. Abortion will be illegal in twenty states in 18 months. For the past 12 years, since Justice Sandra Day O'Connor retired from the bench, Kennedy has been the court's median justice, with four justices to the left of him and four to the right.

The travel ban's stated goals of preventing entry to the USA of people who can not be adequately vetted and inducing other countries to improve their security practices provided legitimate justifications, Roberts said.
