>> Protection of the nation from foreign terrorist entry.>> A major ruling on President Donald Trump's travel ban is coming as the US Supreme Court winds down its term this week. Trump originally announced the travel ban almost immediately after taking office last year, but was forced to alter it twice following massive protests at airports, state lawsuits, and lower court rulings blocking it.
The current ban bars people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen from entering the country. After lower courts blocked earlier versions of the ban, the Supreme Court stepped in last December and allowed it to go into effect until it issues its final ruling. The case was argued in April.
The five seat conservative majority, including Trump's appointee, Neil Gorsuch, signaled support for the policy, a major test to presidential powers. The court also expected to rule on whether public sector unions are allowed to charge fees to non-members. A ruling against the unions could cost them millions of dollars.
