The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld President Trump’s travel ban.

The decision represents a triumph of – and return to – the rule of law and long-settled legal precedents, and away from decisions arguably motivated more by judicial distaste for the underlying policy if not the president himself, says public interest law professor John Banzhaf, who had long predicted the ruling.

The decision appears to rebuke if not repudiate what even many who oppose the President’s policies have named “TrumpLaw” – i.e., roughly twisting and bending, if not actually breaking, existing legal precedents to thwart policies which are unpopular but probably not illegal – argues Banzhaf.
