White House appeals to Supreme Court over travel ban

collected by :Molly Tony

The White House has asked the US Supreme Court to allow President Donald Trump’s latest travel ban to take full effect.
The Supreme Court appeal argued that the latest travel ban differed from previous orders and is based on “national-security and foreign-affairs objectives, rather than religious animus”.
Mr Trump’s ban was announced on 24 September and replaced two previous versions that had been blocked by federal courts.
Mr Trump has said the travel ban is needed to protect the US from attacks by Islamist militants.
Critics of the travel ban in its various iterations call it a “Muslim ban” that violates the US Constitution by discriminating on the basis of religion.

The White House asked the US Supreme Court on Monday to allow President Donald Trump’s latest travel ban to take full effect after an appeals court in California ruled last week that only parts of it could be enacted.
Trump’s ban was announced on Sept. 24 and replaced two previous versions that had been impeded by federal courts.
The lawsuit did not challenge restrictions toward people from the two other countries listed in Trump’s ban, North Korea and Venezuela.
