by Joanne Finnegan
A travel ban that was opposed by a healthcare industry that depends on foreign doctors and workers was upheld today by the Supreme Court.
The justices voted 5-4 (PDF) that President Donald Trump acted within the law in imposing limits on travel from several predominantly Muslim countries.
The president, shortly after taking office, implemented a travel ban that had implications for foreign-born doctors, medical students and patients who seek care in the United States.
