    The US Supreme Court has ruled President Donald Trump's travel ban on six mainly Muslim countries can go into full effect, pending legal challenges.

    The decision is a boost for Mr Trump's policy against travellers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

    The ruling covers the third version of the directive that the president has issued since taking office.

    Seven of the nine justices lifted injunctions on Monday imposed by lower courts against the policy. Only liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor would have allowed the president's order to remain blocked.

    What happens next?

    Federal appeals courts in San Francisco, California, and Richmond, Virginia, will hear arguments this week on whether the latest iteration of the policy is lawful.

    The Supreme Court noted it expects those courts to reach decisions "with appropriate dispatch".
    The case will eventually end up back in the Supreme Court.

    I wonder if those swing voters that voted for Trump are having 2nd thoughts yet.

    Probably not. A Muslim ban was one of Trump's major campaign promises.

    As much as I loathe Trump; why is America banning certain countries from immigrating there a problem? It’s America’s prerogative to allow in who they wish.
