Iran says will act on US court ruling on Trump's travel ban

The US Supreme Court The US Supreme Court

It said Monday that travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen could come to the United States if they have "a bona fide relationship" with a person or entity in the United States.

Local immigration lawyers say questions remain about portions of the president's temporary ban on travel from six majority-Muslim countries, reinstated this week by the U.S Supreme Court.

"It's regrettable that the American government, because of their economic and commercial short-sightedness, have closed their eyes to the main perpetrators of terrorism in America", he said. However, she said it's encouraging that the court is allowing those seeking a visa who have "bona fide" claims to the United States to enter, but she says it's something the State Department does already.

The highest court in the land also modified the blocks placed on the ban by lower courts, allowing a limited version to go into effect while the court waits to hear arguments.

"It is regrettable that the U.S. government is ignoring the major perpetrators of the terrorist acts in the United States and gives [the world] a wrong address in broad daylight in pursuit of its shortsighted economic and business goals".

Reynolds made the announcement by sharing a pic of him in costume as Deadool giving Dennison a piggy-back ride. Dennison confirmed the news on his own social media feeds, and Waititi is joyfully floored by the reveal.

The US president initially signed an executive order of the travel ban in January.

Trump's first issued order after taking the office was to ban the entry of the citizens of seven countries, in which Islam is the dominant religion to the United Sates.

The court goes on to define relationships that would qualify: for individuals, a family relationship; for students; admittance to a college or university; for workers, a job offer.

A broad interpretation, for example, could allow for a contract or reservation with a rental vehicle agency or hotel in the United States to be considered legitimate relationship, the officials said.
