The Supreme Court handed a victory to President Donald Trump Monday, when it allowed his latest travel ban to go into effect even as legal challenges continue in lower courts.

The ruling will bar most citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea from entering the United States, along with some groups of people from Venezuela. We speak with Lee Gelernt, an ACLU attorney who presented the first challenge to Trump’s travel ban order, resulting in a nationwide injunction.
