The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled in favor of the third version of President Trump’s travel ban. This ban, citing questionable national security concerns, suspends entry to immigrants from many Muslim-majority countries, earning the colloquial title of “Muslim Ban.”
Justice Breyer’s dissent against the Court’s ruling, cited that legal exemptions in the ban, including refugees and asylum seekers, weren’t working, thereby making the travel ban unconstitutional. Specifically, he referenced the 15,000 refugees from Syria who arrived in the U.S. in 2016, and the dramatic drop to only 13 Syrian refugees in the first half of 2018.
Though the numbers are not yet in for 2018, Muslim refugee seekers in the U.S. have been up over the past 5 years, with that number expected to dramatically drop in 2018 due to this new statute.
