The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that U.S. President Donald Trump's travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries is lawful.

In the five-four decision, the court found that Trump's executive order on the immigration restriction fell "squarely" within the president's authority.

"The order is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices," Chief Justice John Roberts said.

"The text says nothing about religion," he said.
