The travel ban in numbers: Why families and refugees lose big


Raquel Aldana critically analyzes the Supreme Court's decision upholding the travel ban on The Conversation and considers the numbers of noncitizens affected.  She laments that:

"The U.S Supreme Court’s ruling forecloses judicial oversight over much of President Trump’s immigration policies, at least those affecting the entry of foreign nationals. This includes those facing high stakes at the border: family separation or lack of safe harbor from persecution. For now, the nations included in the travel ban face an indefinite iron locked door, with no hope that their knocking will be answered."
