more than 2,000 children with their families. tracie potts joins us with the satest. >> reporter: thishe 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 thea zero tol policy, and it was a case that was pursued by the aclu. ey sued and now a court has said those families have to be reunited. we also expect to hear today ng from coss. there's a vote scheduled in the house on whether or not these families can be reunited. but it's a bigger vote on immigration including money for the president's border wall. that vote couldit well fail a lot of lawmakers saying they're voting no becausehe 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 lawkers were qui

somalia, syria, and yemen. the ruling notes the president's anti-muslim statements in the campaign and in ofonce. >>d 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 sstility, the travel ban based on legitimate concerns for the country's safety, and that's what co tts. justices said that because the travel ban raises an issue of national security, they are not going to get involved in figuring out what a tweet means or a campaign statement means. >> reporte but in a blistering opinion for the dissenters, justice sonia sotomayor said the travel ban was anti-muslim, motivated by amosity toward a disfavored group. she called the ruling gravely wrong. the lawyerhaor theenger 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 e policy and give it the veneer of constitutionality. >> reporter: the decision is a
defeat for this wdan who wan to get her relatives here. >> my grandparents, my uncles and aunts who live in libya can't come. i recentad a wedding planned last week. they weren't able to come nd at >> reporter: this lifts the legal cloud over the travel ban, which has actually been in forc. since decemb for the most part, it forbids people to move here from those affected muslim countries, but it also says there can be som sitors including students and people who can prove that they're not a risk to public safety. phillip? >> pete, thank you. president trump of course is celebrating the court's decision hailin a it a tremendous victory at the white house. he alsoeized the moment to press for his proposed border wall. nbles peternder has more. >> the supreme court ruling was a tremendous victory for this country and for the constitution. >> reporter: president trump claimi >> the ruling shows that all of the attacks from the media and the democrat politicians are wrong. >> reporter: mr. trump reveling in a rare judicial win. but on capitol hill, docrats
