The 5-4 decision Tuesday is the court’s first substantive ruling on a Trumpadministration policy.

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion, joined by his four conservative colleagues.

Roberts wrote that presidents have substantial power to regulate immigration.

The court may have signaled its eventual approval in December, when the justices allowed the policy to take full effect even as the court fight continued and lowercourts had ruled it out of bounds.
