Supreme Court agrees to hear Presidents Trump travel ban challenge, partially allows enforcement of order
July 4, 2017
On June 26, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear President Trump administration's challenge to rulings blocking his executive order restricting travel from six Muslim-majority countries - Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The court will allow enforcement of parts of the ban while the case moves forward.
Under the temporary rules, the travel ban "may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States”. This means that the ban cannot be applied to visa applicants who have a close relationship to a family member in the U.S., who are coming to study, or accept a job offer from U.S. employers. The order will still allow entry by permanent residents from the six countries and those holding valid nonimmigrant visas.
The order can take effect for people who "lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."
The Supreme Court suggested that the administration could complete its reviews during the summer, and it will proceed with reviewing the case in October 2017.
