The United States Supreme Court has upheld the third-iteration of President Trump's travel ban against majority-Muslim countries.

In a 5-4 decision today, the highest court in the land ruled that the President's ban was constitutional.

In the 5-4 opinion penned by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court found that Trump's immigration restriction fell "squarely" within the president's authority. The court rejected claims that the ban was motivated by religious hostility.

Anthony Kennedy, widely viewed as the biggest swing vote on the court joined the majority opinion.

Previous versions of the ban were revised after facing challenges in court. How long will the ban remain in effect by the government?
