the ban. they decided to look past the neutral rhetoric the trump administration had stamped on it. they considered trump's own statement about muslims in the u.s. the supreme court did not do that. the new york daily news is continuing to refer to this not with a more neutral label of the travel ban. they are still calling it the muslim ban. host: some papers point out there was a piece of good news in the ruling. the u.s. supreme court finally overturned the ruling that upheld japanese internment during world war ii. reporter: it was called the korimatzu ruling. the chief justice of the supreme court wrote in his opinion it had been overruled and the court of history and has no place in the constitution. it is effectively overturning it. the fact these decisions were uombined to overturn korumatiz
