In a win sure to make President Donald Trump happy, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump Administration’s travel ban for several majority Muslim countries. The case, Trump v. Hawaii came down to a 5-4 decision, with the official opinion penned by Chief Justice John Roberts. The decision came down to the fact that the travel restriction wasn’t religiously motivated, and was rather based on terrorism concerns.
“The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Roberts wrote. “The text says nothing about religion.”
The countries effected are Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. The countries were chosen due to their ties to international terrorism, and were originally flagged by former President Barack Obama.
This Supreme Court decision allows President Donald Trump to follow through on one of his main campaign promises to secure America’s borders. Securing the border isn’t just about adding extra security to the physical border, but also making sure those who are visiting, and immigrating to the United States via airplane are vetted.
President Donald Trump responded to the decision on Twitter with a short Tweet, clearly showing his shock and excitement that the Supreme Court sided with him.
SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!

Trump’s travel ban has been perhaps his most controversial decision since taking office. It has spurred protests at airports nationwide, and general outrage among left-wing activists.
In reality, the ban is simply about creating a stronger system to vet people from dangerous countries. It is about making America safe again, something that Trump pledged to do on the campaign trail.
Over 200 Illegal Aliens Arrested in Bust of Human Smuggling Operation in Laredo, Texas
More than 200 illegal aliens were transferred to the custody of Customs and Border Patrol last week, with the wave of arrests coming as authorities moved upon a human smuggling ring operating in the Laredo, Texas area.
Border Patrol agents most recently recounted finding 25 people hiding within a horse trailer at an immigration checkpoint on Thursday. They’ve encountered other smuggling attempts with the use of commercial tractor-trailers, box trucks, agriculture and fuel containers, and a travel trailer. CBP has reported making 242 arrests last week alone, a figure not seen since before the coronavirus pandemic.
At least two of the men arrested by CBP for attempting to unlawfully enter the country have outstanding arrest warrants for sex crimes in the United States, one of which is said to have targeted a minor. Both of these suspects are currently facing extradition proceedings for their alleged crimes.
The south Texas city appears to have become a hub for cartel-affiliated human smuggling, which has resumed in force following a lull during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. CBP and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on a human smuggling stash house in the city last month, in which 47 illegal aliens were being stashed.
The freeze on illegal immigration that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic appears to largely be over, with criminal smuggling groups now once again attempting to move large groups of unlawful aliens into the United States. It’s very likely that smuggling organizations will attempt to move their customers across the southern border in a greatly increased capacity if Joe Biden is inaugurated in January. The Democrat candidate has already confirmed he only intends to deport illegal aliens who are convicted of a violent felony, which would largely abandon the enforcement of American immigration law.
