Trump’s Travel Ban: What are its Effects?

Published on July 31st, 2018

President Trump has another “tremendous victory” under his belt in his quest to control immigration. In a recent 5-to-4 decision, the Supreme Court upheld Trump’s ban on travel from seven different countries, five that are predominantly Muslim. People from Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen are either banned or severely restricted from entering the United States for the time being. President Trump focused on these nations because they have a recent history of disorder and are known to harbor large extremist groups.

President Trump’s goal is to protect the United States’ borders from future terrorist incidents, and he has been clear from the early days of his administration that he was willing to do everything in his power to battle the court’s challenges to the travel ban. So, what are the effects of this monumental court ruling on these seven nations and beyond?

This Temporary Ban Postpones the American Dream for Some

While it is unfortunate that some immigrants will not be able to seek refuge in the U.S. for the time being, it is our hope that these nations emerge from their recently troubled pasts and that open immigration can soon return with regard to these seven nations. While this ban is significant for the citizens of the nations affected, it leaves the door wide open for refugees from a wide array of nations across the world. The American Dream may be temporarily unavailable for a few nations, it is still alive and well for the majority of those who seek it.

This is just one example of a significant constitutional issue that affects citizens in war-torn countries, and we believe it is important that everyone is informed. Only time will tell how the travel ban will play out in the long run.
