The Supreme Court voted against President Donald Trump's asylum ban Friday, with Chief Justice John Roberts siding with his liberal colleagues.


The Justices voted 5-4 to uphold a lower court's block on the ban, which would have prevented asylum seekers who entered the country illegally from applying for asylum.

The news came at the end of a tumultuous week for the President, on both the domestic and international fronts.

On CNN Friday, analyst Jeffrey Toobin didn't hold back in his assessment of what the Court's decision means for President Trump.

"It's an embarrassment and it's a defeat," Toobin said. "There's no doubt about it."

Toobin pointed out that the decision is likely not the end of the travel ban, but it doesn't bode well for the policy.
