Today, the US Supreme Court decided to uphold the travel ban designed by the Trump administration. The ban restricts nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and even America’s “newest ally” North Korea, from entering the United States.
This is the third version of the travel ban since its inception and after having run through various courts. Initially, critics called previous versions an anti-Muslim travel ban, however, now they are having to reconsider that label now that the ban also includes Venezuela and North Korea. The countries named are on the list because the Trump administration says they are either terror threats or uncooperative with the US.
