Guest: Frederick Gedicks, JD, Professor of Constitution Law and Religious Freedom, BYU A new poll out today from Politico and Morning Consult found more than half of Americans support the limited travel ban put in place by the Trump Administration last week. The US Supreme Court cleared the way for the restrictions to take effect banning visitors from six majority-Muslim countries, unless the travelers can prove they have a bona fide relationship with a person or entity already in the US. The limited ban is intended to stay in place until the Supreme Court hears the full case in October. Last week, the court also issued a major religious freedom ruling in favor of a church-run preschool seeking government funds to resurface its playground.
