The US Supreme Court has allowed Trump to enforce his travel ban while it deliberates its legality.
On Monday, the court said that the Trump administration can implement the ban and prevent citizens from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen from travelling to the US. So far, the plan has faced opposition at every turn and has been called everything from “racist” to “xenophobic”, underlying the racial tensions that have characterised the Trump presidency thus far. The policy effectively works in tandem with Trump’s promise to build a Mexico-US border wall (which has not materialised yet) to form the twin pillars of his administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration.
