.@POTUS statement says SCOTUS action allows him to &quot;use an important tool for protecting our Nation&#39;s homeland.&quot; Will admin press further? pic.twitter.com/gxBJO5aYYZ&mdash; Mike Memoli (@mikememoli) June 26, 2017 President Trump celebrated the Supreme Court's decision Monday to allow&nbsp;a curtailed version of his travel ban to take effect, calling it a "clear victory for our national security."In an official White House statement, the president said he was "particularly gratified" that at least part of the ruling was 9-0; three conservative justices said they would have let the president's revised executive order&nbsp;take effect completely."My number one responsibility as Commander in Chief is to keep the American people safe.&nbsp;Today's ruling allows me to use an important tool for protecting our Nation's homeland," he said.&nbsp;The White House has long maintained that the president was acting within his authority in seeking to temporarily restrict travel to the United States. They most often point to&nbsp;a provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act&nbsp;that states a president can suspend or limit entry of individuals "whenever the president finds that the entry ... would be detrimental to the interests of the United States."
