U.S. Supreme Court Backs Trump Travel Ban on Muslim Countries

The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld the administration's travel restrictions on citizens from five Muslim countries, handing President Donald Trump a victory in enforcing one of his most controversial policies. Under the travel ban, issued in September after courts blocked its two earlier permutations, citizens of five Muslim countries - Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen - as well as North Koreans and some Venezuelan officials - are barred from travelling to the U.S.
