YEK 2018 decision by the Supreme Court

A 2018 decision by the Supreme Court

Many Americans think the travel ban is wrong. But on June 26, 2018, the United States Supreme Court made a decision that the travel ban is allowed under US law. The judges decided that President Trump has the right to use an executive order to stop non-citizens entering the USA. He has this right if he believes their entry could harm the country.
