Statement from President Donald J. Trump

Today's unanimous Supreme Court decision is a clear victory for our national security.  It allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries and the refugee suspension to become largely effective. 

As President, I cannot allow people into our country who want to do us harm.  I want people who can love the United States and all of its citizens, and who will be hardworking and productive.  

My number one responsibility as Commander in Chief is to keep the American people safe.  Today's ruling allows me to use an important tool for protecting our Nation's homeland.  I am also particularly gratified that the Supreme Court’s decision was 9-0.
