The U.S. Supreme Court agreed Monday to let President Trump temporarily ban U.S. entry by refugees and residents of six overwhelmingly Muslim nations if they have no connection with family members or institutions in the United States. Trump ordered a 90-day ban on entry of anyone from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, and a 120-day ban on all U.S. admission of refugees who are fleeing violence and hardship in their homelands. In its ruling last month, the Ninth Circuit court said Trump had offered no evidence that temporarily barring immigrants and visitors from the targeted nations, as well as all would-be refugees, would protect the United States from terrorism.
