Trump travel ban: Terrorists have new reason to attack US - Iran Minister

Trump travel ban: Terrorists have new reason to attack US - Iran Minister

The Supreme Court on Monday allowed President Donald Trump to forge ahead with a limited version of his ban on travelers from Iran, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Libya and Somalia. This provision, often referred to as the "travel ban", effectively prohibits travel to the United States for individuals from the six affected countries.

"I said in January that it would have been better if the agency would have had done more advanced planning before the original ban took effect, so we hope such confusion can be avoided this time", said Tony Reardon, president of the National Treasure Employees Union.

"Then there are stealth attacks through memos being sent by Islamophobes in the white house to different government departments which is being used by some banks and other financial institutions to deny legitimate Muslim charities, the Muslim business, and otherwise traveling Muslims like the son of the great Muhammad Ali", the statement said.

But it said the ban would not apply to visitors who have a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States".




"It is regrettable that the citizens of the countries on the list have never participated in any act of terrorism against the US and yet they are being punished for acts of terrorism", he said. The Iranian engineer and Clemson University graduate had been unable to return to the United States because of Trump's executive order.

Shortly after the court's ruling, the State Department notified all USA diplomatic posts of the decision and advised them to await instructions that would be forthcoming by the self-imposed implementation deadline on Thursday, according to officials familiar with the situation.

Trump hailed the court's order as "a clear victory for our national security". "As president, I can not allow people into our country who want to do us harm".

Two federal courts shot down the travel ban saying it amounted to religious discrimination, something Dady doesn't disagree with. Saudi citizens are not affected by the travel ban. As of May 31 of this year, 46,403 refugees have been admitted into the United States, near the cap of 50,000 the Trump administration put into place.
