US Supreme Court ruling lets President Trump’s travel ban to come into effect

US Supreme Court ruling lets PresidentOn Monday, June 26th, the Supreme Court said that despite rulings in two different federal courts that President Trump’s travel ban should be put on hold while judges decide whether it’s constitutional, the Trump administration should be allowed to enforce the ban starting on Thursday, June 29.

 

The justices scheduled oral arguments in the case for when they return in October. They also partially lifted the lower courts’ injunctions against Section 2(c) of President Donald Trump’s executive order, which temporarily suspended visa applications from six Muslim-majority countries, as well as Section 6, which froze the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program and blocked refugee entry into the United States.

 

But the Court’s verdict only lets the Trump administration ban certain people and anyone with a “bona fide relationship” with a person or organization in America will be allowed to enter, like anyone already with a valid visa to enter the United States.

 

The Supreme Court offered some guidance about who will be allowed to enter under its modified ban. Nevertheless, it remains unclear how broad or narrow that restriction will be in practice. Consequently, nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen can continue reportedly to enter the U.S. to visit family, attend school, or work, but are probably banned for at least 90 days from entering the U.S. solely for tourism, unless they obtained the necessary visas.
