Vice President Pence said he was “very confident” the Supreme Court would uphold the Trump administration’s authority to issue its controversial travel ban during a wide-ranging discussion Friday on “Fox & Friends.”
Pence expressed optimism that when the Supreme Court rules on the executive order temporarily halting travel from several majority-Muslim countries, a majority of judges would recognize the president’s “right” in restricting immigration for security-based reasons. A ruling on the matter could come as early as Friday.
“The ability to come in to the United States of America is a privilege, not a right,” Pence said.
He cited the recent terror attacks in Kabul – outside an ice cream parlor – and in Manchester – near a concert hall – as part of the reason the travel ban and “extreme vetting” were so essential to U.S. interests.
