Iran calls Supreme Court's travel ban decision "racist" and "unfair"

Iran calls Supreme Court's travel ban decision

The March 6th Executive Order entitled "Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States" was to suspend visa issuance for individuals from six countries, including Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen for 90 days.

Zarif also tweeted on Tuesday, "A bigoted ban on Muslims will not keep USA safer".

"The Trump administration has said this is a great win", said Bauer.

Iran has denounced the recent US Supreme Court ruling allowing President Donald Trump's contentious Muslim ban to be partly reinstated, saying the United States is turning a blind eye to the real culprits behind acts of terror on its soil.

"It is regrettable that the citizens of the countries on the list have never participated in any act of terrorism against the USA and yet they are being punished for acts of terrorism", he said.

Now the United State's top court, the Supreme Court, has ruled that parts of it can go ahead. The Iranian engineer and Clemson University graduate had been unable to return to the United States because of Trump's executive order.

"It is regrettable that the USA government is ignoring the major perpetrators of the terrorist acts in the U.S. and gives [the world] a wrong address in broad daylight in pursuit of its shortsighted economic and business goals".

In a statement released by the White House President, Donald Trump said: "today's unanimous #Supreme Court decision is a clear victory for our national security". The measures spelled out in the order are meant to be temporary while the government reviews its security procedures.

Some refugee resettlement agencies have tried to make up for the low numbers by accelerating resettlement after courts blocked the travel ban.

As for refugees, Heller said their clients will largely not be affected and neither should the clients of other resettlement organizations.
