McConnell tweeted out a photo of himself with Justice Neil Gorsuch, the newest member of the Supreme Court. Gorsuch was one of the five justices who ruled that the ban fell under the president’s powers, thus being constitutional. (RELATED: SUPREMES DEAL VICTORY FOR TRUMP, UPHOLD TRAVEL BAN)
The current ban is imposed on nationals from Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.
“The president has lawfully exercised the broad discretion granted to him under [federal law],” Chief Justice Roberts wrote in the Court’s opinion.
“I am proud of my decision … to let the American people decide who they wanted to appoint the next Supreme Court justice. As a result, the Senate confirmed President Trump’s outstanding nominee, Justice Neil Gorsuch,” McConnell stated back in January.
Gorsuch was confirmed to the bench in April of 2017 after going through a rigorous confirmation process.
