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.
Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
