their families. tracie potts joins us with the latest. >> reporter: this is the first time we've seen a federal court weigh in on whether or not those families have to be reunited. it was actually a case that began last november before the zero tolerance policy, and it was a case that was pursued by the aclu. they sued and now a court has said those families have to be reunited. we also expect to hear today from congress. there's a vote scheduled in the house on wheer or not these families can be united. but it's a bigger v on immigration including money for the president's border wall. that vote could well fail with a lot of lawmakers saying they're voting no because the president hasn't weighed in on whether he'll sign it. milissa? >> thank you. major victory for the trump administration. the u.s. supreme court upholding president trump's travel ban in a new ruling. it was a 5-4 decision. opponents including many democratic lawmakers were quick to slam the decision, arguing it amounts to a muslim ban.

4:06 am
anti-muslim statements in the campaign and in office. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: the court said quite apart from any religious hostility, the travel ban is based on legitimate concerns for the country's safety, and that's what counts. >> the justices said that because the travel ban raises an issue of national security, they are not going to get involved in figuringut what a tweet means or a campaign statement means.d justice sonia sotomayor said the travel ban was anti-muslim, motivated by animosity toward a disfavored group. she called the ruling gravely wrong. the lawyer for the challenger said they at least pressured the administration to come up with a narrower travel ban. >> the federal courts forced the president to kind of rejigger the policy and give it the veneer of constitutionality. >> reporter: the decision is a defeat for this woman who wanted to get her relatives here.
