The Supreme Court of the United States supported the migratory veto
Supreme Court of the United States supported on Tuesday the migratory veto of the president Donald Trump, in spite of the allegations that it aimed especially at countries with Muslim majority.
The high court ruled, thus, in favor of the third travel ban promulgated by the president since he arrived at the White House in January 2017, and that affects Libya, Iran, Somalia, Syria and Yemen and imposes restrictions for citizens of Venezuela and North Korea since last September.
The sentence, drafted by Judge John Roberts, was backed by the conservative majority of the court and went ahead by 5 votes in favor and 4 against. In it, it is considered that Trump exercised “legally” his power to “suspend the entry” of foreigners to the country.
Supreme Court, zero tolerance.
The veto has been a judicial and media battle that has occupied much of the presidency of the billionaire New York and that is a boost for those who have left in front. Trump came to the White House with the intention of overturning the migration policy – the “zero tolerance” that has led to the recent separation of families is part of the same effort – and the sentence is a key boost in a year with legislative elections in sight
The matter reached the Supreme Court after several lower courts blocked the application of the presidential order: its basis was that it “responded to the President’s prejudice against the Muslims” and that it violated the First Amendment of the US Constitution, which establishes the freedom of religion.
Trump announced the measure barely set foot in the White House, in January last year, which marked what would be the tone of his presidency. He did so after having advocated in campaign for a “total and complete closure of the borders to Muslims entering the country,” in December 2015, in reaction to the terrorist attack in San Bernardino (California).
The “Islamic veto” put the cry in the sky of the Democratic opposition, civil rights organizations, religious leaders and the immigrant community. But Trump was faithful to the anti-immigrant populist rhetoric that took him to the presidency and responded to the judicial blockades with versions of the veto in which his administration tried to disassociate him from a religious prejudice. Presented up to three versions. The last, last fall, which established limitations for citizens of eight countries, six of them with a Muslim majority: Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad (which later came off the list), Somalia, North Korea and Venezuela. The latter was also blocked by the courts, in an appeal that left out the last two countries.
This order was blocked by federal courts and the Executive prepared a second version, processed in March of that year, which removed Iraq from the list and suppressed the exceptions included in the refugee admission program, but the national courts again opposed and prevented its implementation.
After several judicial setbacks, that veto was able to enter into force thanks to the Supreme Court, which allowed the Government to restrict the entry of those who had no close family in the United States
The restrictions were temporary and when they expired, in September 2017, Trump proclaimed his third veto, which included for the first time two countries without Muslim majority: North Korea and Venezuela, in which the restrictions only affected some officials and their ” immediate family. ” The Supreme Court allowed its implementation on a temporary basis in December.
The inclusion of two countries that do not harbor a Muslim majority was a blow to the argument of the plaintiffs – led by Hawaii – who had pointed to the tycoon’s statements about the need to implement a veto against Muslims and pointed out that he discriminated in base to religion.
The new ruling is an influx of fuel for Trump, but above all an endorsement of his policies accompanied by an extravagant anti-immigration rhetoric that laid the foundations for his 2016 presidential campaign and which he maintains during his term in office.
