Source: U.S. Department of Homeland Security

U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued the following announcement on June 26.

The Department of Homeland Security released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold President Trump’s Proclamation 9645 Enhancing Vetting Capabilities and Processes for Detecting Attempted Entry Into the United States by Terrorists or Other Public-Safety Threats:

"It is the duty of the government to ensure that those seeking to enter our country will not harm the American people. While we have the most generous immigration system in the world, it has repeatedly been exploited by terrorists and other malicious actors who seek to do us harm. President Trump’s executive actions take important steps to protect the American people by allowing for the proper review and establishment of standards to prevent terrorist or criminal infiltration by foreign nationals.

“Today’s ruling confirms the legality of these critically important executive actions, and the Department of Homeland Security will continue to faithfully execute our country’s immigration laws and treat everyone we encounter humanely and with professionalism.”
