SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2018
The current ban, announced in September, prohibits entry into the United States of most people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. The court's reversal is viewed as a victory for the Trump administration. But the travel ban has been widely criticised by refugee and human rights groups.
