Supreme Court allows grandparents and other relatives from “banned” countries to come to the U.S.
In a loss for the Trump administration, on July 19, 2017, the Supreme Court left intact a lower court opinion that temporarily exempts grandparents and other relatives from President Donald Trump's travel ban. According to the ruling, grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States are not subject to travel restrictions.
However, the Supreme Court gave President Trump a partial win on another issue by lifting an order exempting a category of refugees from the travel ban. According to the court, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals should review the issue.
The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in the case on October 10, 2017.
