TRUMP'S TRAVEL BAN FROM EIGHT COUNTRIES UPHELD

On June 26, 2018, the Supreme Court upheld President Trump's travel ban imposed against eight countries, rejecting the contention that the President had exceeded his authority and violated the Constitution by targeting Muslims.  The 5-4 majority ruled that the immigration laws grant the President broad discretion to restrict the entry of aliens whenever he finds it "would be detrimental to the interest of the United States."  Trump v. Hawaii, No. 17-965. 

There is some speculation as to whether the ruling will encourage the President to take action to block employment-based immigration programs he doesn't like.  The Administration has already limited certain employment-based immigration programs, particularly the H-1B Skilled Guest Worker Program as part of its "Hire American" program.
