"We were hoping that at least the Supreme Court would rule at least for fair play and let us be reunited with our families", said Salem, who came to the USA eight years ago and has since become a citizen.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, said in her dissent that the majority decision fails to protect religious liberty as a fundamental American principle.
"We need to keep out every risky person who tries to come in this country, but to categorically brand people because of their religion or their background or country they're from is just not the way we should do things in America". For example, the president could not use the ruling to summarily deport thousands of people living in the USA who come from particular countries, since the ruling deals only with people trying to enter the US, according to Cornell Law School professor Stephen Yale-Loehr.
The September proclamation establishing the ban said waivers could be granted if denying entry would cause "undue hardship", if entry of the person would not pose a threat to the United States, and if entry would be in the national interest.
Despite Trump's claim that the ban was "not a Muslim ban", he noted an exception to the travel restrictions for Christians coming from these countries.
The court, ever mindful of the impact of its rulings across not just the country but the world, wanted to make very clear that in upholding Trump's travel ban, it was not sending any sort of signal about its own views on Islam or religion more generally. One week into his presidency, he followed through with a campaign promise and announced a 90-day ban on travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. During his campaign, he had promised to impose a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States", and a few days after being sworn in, he issued a hastily drafted proclamation that temporarily barred foreign travelers from seven countries.
However, a slim majority on the nation's highest court approved the ban's third iteration. Courts in several states found the measure was illegal, and did so again in March 2017 after the Trump administration slightly amended the original order, with Iraq dropped from the list.
In the case, Trump v. Hawaii, the state of Hawaii argues that the ban hurts its university system by banning potential students and scholars from entering the country.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials announced this week that they are no longer referring such cases for prosecution, though the administration's Supreme Court victory added to questions about whether Trump agrees with that policy.
