The Supreme Court's ruling on President Donald Trump's ban on travel from certain Muslim-majority countries may embolden Trump on immigration policy, CNN reports.

The court ruled 5-4 in Trump's favor, which could indicate that the Supreme Court will favor the administration on future immigration issues.

Washington University law professor Stephen Legomsky told the news network that the ruling "does show that for the five Republican appointees on the court, deference to the executive branch policy positions will still be the rule of the day as long as they like the outcome.

"Those same justices were not deferential to President [Barack] Obama with respect to [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] and [Deferred Action for Parents of Americans], but they are showing extreme deference to this President on this proclamation even on the face of explicitly discriminatory public statements. The court has shown it is willing to be very selective when it comes to showing deference to the President."

Karen Tumlin, of the pro-immigration National Immigration Law Center, said that "a decision like this does shake one's belief," and that she and the rest of the organization "will turn to continuing a longer fight for justice. ... As long as the Trump administration is trying to rewrite and radically alter the nation's immigration system, folks like my organization and others will be taking them to court to challenge that."

Cornell University professor Stephen Yale-Loehr said, "I think in particular the Supreme Court is likely to defer to the President on any future executive order on immigration.

"Historically, they've expressed the view that immigration touches on national sovereignty and foreign relations and they don't want to step on that, and this decision today is just the latest example of that deference. I think they may feel emboldened by today's decision. ... A lot of litigation is going to get started indirectly because of the case today."
