countries will get more from washington also coming out malta says it will accept a migrant rescue ship which had previously turned away that's after several european countries agreed to take a share of the two hundred migrants on board yet passengers on the ship they say they've heard nothing about reaching dry land. good to have you with us tonight u.s. president trump is celebrating a major victory the u.s. supreme court has upheld his travel ban which blocks people from several mostly muslim majority countries from entering the u.s. now signing the executive order to ban injury into the country was one of the first things that trump did after taking office the move triggered protests across the u.s. and chaos at airports. the initial. version were struck down by
9:02 pm
a lower court but a third amended version went into force last december the supreme court ruled that the u.s. president has the authority to restrict entry into the u.s. the court did not mention muslims or the claim of religious discrimination or let's cross over now to our washington correspondent clear richardson she's on the story for us tonight good evening to you claire so these supreme court ruled that the ban is legal but what about the notion of the targets muslim majority countries well brand this ban does it target people coming from five muslim majority countries and even though the court has ruled that this did not have an anti muslim bias its critics of course say that this is clearly targeted at muslims and violates the united states' constitutional protections against religious freedoms and in fact you can look at the dissenting opinion that came
9:03 pm
from the court the four justices who were narrowly over rules of who did not agree with this travel ban they said that any reasonable observer would conclude that the ban was motivated by an anti muslim sentiment so this is of course the third iteration of the travel ban it's worth noting that the first two were challenged by lower courts you'll remember the beginning of comes presidency this really caused so much chaos we just saw scenes of people held up at airports where tens of thousands of visas were canceled it was not clear what kind of impact his original writing of the ban was going to have but none of those were able to withstand the courts now the lower courts have blocked those original efforts forced him to recast and we've now seen the nation's top authority say that this travel ban can stand and there has been reaction from the u.s. president in the west are were so let's take a listen. the supreme court ruling. has come to tremendous success that tremendous will do for the american people and for our constitution. who
9:04 pm
are going to do. we have to be tough and we have to be safe and we have to be secure the room shows that all of the attacks from the media and the democrats well if you can do wrong turn out to be very wrong. and we're looking for as republicans are going you is screwed waters no grudge. the reaction there from the u.s. president the court today in its ruling said that the president has the authority to ban travel but he doesn't have the authority to simply invoke national security when he does be on trail so how significant is this victory for the u.s. president well it's certainly a major political victory for president trump even though it doesn't do everything that he set out to do it right from the beginning with his initial version of the band it's still going to be very popular among his supporters it was really wanted
9:05 pm
his key campaign promises that he was going to be tough on immigration it's a central part of his foreign policy even on his campaign website when he was running to be president of the united states there was a statement saying that he wanted to see a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states that was later removed but it's been a fairly clear where he stands on this issue so his supporters will be very happy to see it they will see it as a victory for security and the rule of law but many others will see it as un-american and potentially a blight on history and opponents of the ban protested outside the u.s. supreme court today here's reaction from one muslim american. today i'm heartbroken. taking so much pain me to hold back tears but i want to cry. today i'm heartbroken for my community the muslim going to. my community my theory and
9:06 pm
community and all the communities that are directly impacted by this muslim bad. clear do we really know what kind of impact this trouble bay and has had on the nations that or listed well for the people coming from those countries it's certainly going to be a difficult pill to swallow human rights groups are so concerned about what this means for people who are fleeing war trying to come to the united states what it means for people who want to visit their relatives who live here and also the fact that it's seen as legitimizing discrimination now the travel ban has been fully in place since december for those countries it's a fact of their their ability to travel is not going to change today from where it was yesterday the muslim communities are clearly upset about this ban and not just them but any and any minority group looking at how immigration policy is decided in the united states the united states will be concerned to see it decided based on race or religion. of course one clear which is that on the story for us tonight
