The US President Donald trump called the unanimous decision of the members of the Supreme court (SC) of the country’s immigration decree “a clear victory” in the field of national security. About it reports Reuters.
“Today’s judgment allows me to use an important tool for homeland defense of our nation,” said the American leader.
Earlier on 26 June it became known that the armed forces were allowed Trump to partially carry into effect the decree banning the entry into the country to citizens of the six predominantly Muslim countries (Iran, Yemen, Libya, Syria, Somalia, and Sudan) and all, without exception for refugees.
According to the verdict, restrictions on entry to a particular group of citizens shall not affect the rights of Americans, and therefore can be introduced by the President. The exception would be those “forbidden” countries that have any relationship with the citizens of the United States: a ban against them declared invalid by the court. Court approval is temporary — is fully the case will be considered in October, but until then the decree will operate.
One of the first decrees of trump after taking office was the decision to ban entry into the United States to citizens of the seven States in which Islam is the dominant religion. The document caused a wave of protests and was subsequently blocked by a judge of the court of Appeals for the ninth circuit in San Francisco.
Another decree on toughening of immigration policy trump signed on March 6. He had 90 days to prohibit the entry of citizens of Iran, Yemen, Libya, Syria, Somalia, and Sudan, as well as to suspend the program of reception of refugees in 120 days. The document was blocked by a court decision in Hawaii. Critics of the decrees noted that they are in fact the ban on the entry of Muslims and not a measure of prevention of terrorism.
