The travel ban is the third version of a contentious policy that Trump first sought to implement a week after taking office in January. The decision of the SC was supported by seven of the nine judges which increase the chances of the administration winning the case on merit as and when it reaches the highest court. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor said they would have denied the administration's request to allow the latest ban to go into effect. It also attracted widespread protests, like this one in NY city. "We are not surprised by today's Supreme Court decision permitting immediate enforcement of the President's proclamation limiting travel from countries presenting heightened risks of terrorism", the White House said.

Russia's justice ministry yesterday named nine United States media outlets including Voice of America as "foreign agents" after President Vladimir Putin signed a law last month allowing worldwide media to be slapped with the controversial label.

The country-specific restrictions affect travel to the United States by nationals of Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Yemen and certain employees of the Venezuelan government.

"I'm still optimistic the courts are going to say yes, this is version 3.0, and they might have painted it a little fancier, but it's still the Muslim ban", Adams said.

"While we agree that security should be the number one priority, there needs to be a balance", Pantuso said.

Lower courts have continued to find problems with the policy.

The ban also covers people from North Korea and a selection of senior officials from Venezuela, but its main focus is travelers from the six mainly Muslim countries.

"This is the third time Hawaii has gone to court to stop President Trump from issuing a travel ban that discriminates against people based on their nation of origin or religion", said Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin. Citing statements from Mr. Trump, some made as a presidential candidate and some more recent, Judge Chuang found that the new proclamation was tainted by religious animus and most likely violated the Constitution's prohibition of government establishment of religion.

"President Trump's anti-Muslim prejudice is no secret - he has repeatedly confirmed it, including just last week on Twitter", said Omar Jadwat, director of the A.C.L.U.'s Immigrants' Rights Project.

The administration has appealed both decisions to federal appeals courts in Seattle and Richmond, Va. Arguments in those appeals are scheduled for this week.

David Levine, a University of California Hastings law school professor, said that by allowing the ban to take effect just days before the appeals court arguments, the justices were signalling their view.

Judge Chuang limited his injunction to exclude people without "a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States", quoting from a Supreme Court order issued in June concerning the second travel ban.
