Supreme Court Upholds Trump Travel Ban On Muslims Countries..

Atlanta Hip Hop community.. I hope you are watching what's going on and I hope that you are not moved emotionally by media to do something stupid.. but there is obviously problems with the United States Courts system.

As of June 26th the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that President Trump has the authority to ban travelers from certain majority-Muslim countries if he thinks it is necessary to protect the United States, a victory in what has been a priority since Trump’s first weeks in office and a major affirmation of presidential power.

The vote was 5 to 4, with conservatives in the majority and Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. finding that a string of unprecedented comments and warnings from Trump about Muslims did not erode the president’s vast powers to control entry into this country. Here's Trump's Twitter response

Here's a breakdown of exactly what happened according to CNN:

  • The ruling: It was 5-4 along partisan lines, with Chief Justice John Roberts writing for the conservative majority. "The Proclamation is squarely within the scope of Presidential authority," Roberts wrote.

  • The dissenting opinion: Justice Sonia Sotomayor, in a blistering dissent, said the court was wrong to ignore Trump's various comment on the ban. She also compared the court's opinion to one that came down in 1944 in which the court blessed the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. That case is Korematsu v. United States.

  • An unusual step: Chief Justice John Roberts declared that the 1944 case, Korematsu v. United States, was no longer good law and was wrongly decided. It is the first time the Supreme Court has ever made this public determination.

  • The reaction: The American Civil Liberties Union and Democratic lawmakers strongly denounced the court's ruling.

  • What Trump said: He called the ruling "a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution" and said he felt vindicated.

Hold your heads everyone... Hold your head
