Lawmakers Weigh In on Travel Ban Ruling

Earlier today, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in upholding President Trump's travel ban. Numerous lawmakers voiced their support on Twitter.

Groups like the American Center for Law and Justice also chimed in.

“The decision by the Supreme Court reflects what we have argued from the very start – the Proclamation is squarely within the scope of Presidential authority and represents a tremendous victory in ongoing efforts to defend and protect America,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ, which filed an amicus brief in the case. “The President must be permitted to take the actions necessary to safeguard this nation and we’re delighted that the Supreme Court found the Proclamation to be constitutional."
