Protesters took to the streets from Washington to Los Angeles and NY to bemoan the decision, and oppose the administration's hardline approach on the southern border, where 2 000 children remain separated from their migrant parents.

President Trump, reacting to the decision on Twitter, wrote: "SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN".

The White House issued a statement saying the ruling was "a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution".

Asked specifically whether the Supreme Court ruling emboldened him to deport people without due process, Trump replied: "We have to find a system where you don't need thousands of judges sitting at a border. At a minimum, we have to make sure that we vet people coming into the country", the Republican president said, referring in a statement to "this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians". But the high court on December 4 allowed it to go fully into effect while the legal challenge continued. He noted that the Trump administration had amended the original ban to include North Korea and Venezuela-countries without significant Muslim populations-and had allowed people from Iraq and Sudan to enter the United States after their home countries changed certain security-screening procedures.

"We express no view on the soundness of the policy", Justice Roberts added.

The supreme considers that migratory veto does not infringe First Amendment of Constitution, which prevents government from favoring one religion against anor, and ratifies presidential power when deciding who enters United States.

President Donald Trump is tweeting "Wow!" after the Supreme Court upheld his travel ban from several mostly Muslim countries. The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) previously confirmed following the September 24 order that the Proclamation is expressly limited to individuals who do not have a valid visa on the effective date of the Proclamation.

The decision overruled by the Supreme Court on Tuesday, Korematsu v. Many held banners reading: "No ban No wall No raids NY is for all". The court returned the case to the lower courts for a further ruling.

In dissent, liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor said there were "stark parallels" with the court's now discredited 1944 decision that upheld US internment of Japanese-Americans during World War Two. Trump continually made statements indicating a distaste for Muslims, she notes, including as recently as November 2017.

She said based on evidence "a reasonable observer would conclude that the proclamation was motivated by anti-Muslim animus".

Instead, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that the policy is justified on national-security grounds. Almost 5,000 were found "ineligible" for visas for other, unspecified reasons unrelated to the travel ban.

But the restrictions on North Korea and Venezuela were not part of the legal challenge.

The AAMC had filed an amicus brief with the high court challenging a series of executive actions over the past 18 months that imposed nationality-based exclusions, asserting that the actions would worsen the nation's health-professions shortage and impair its ability to advance medicine and protect public health.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California, along with the 4th Circuit in Virginia, upheld the district judges who had blocked Trump's order.

The decision - which follows a court hearing in April - is the culmination of a battle that began just days after Trump took office in January 2017. Today, the Court failed on all counts. In 2014, she received asylum and her sons were approved to join her in the U.S. But after the U.S. embassy in Yemen was closed in 2015, their processing was delayed.

"Boston will never stop fighting for our immigrant communities", he added, "regardless of country of origin or faith tradition".
