Trump travel ban partially reinstated by Supreme Court

Francis Olson | 28 June, 2017, 11:31

"We will work with our civil rights partners to offer a legal and legislative response as the Muslim ban moves forward on the ground and in the Supreme Court".

Notably, the order issued by the Supreme Court on Monday says that while the case is pending the travel ban should not be enforced against visa applicants or would-be refugees with a "bona fide relationship" to Americans, such as relatives, students accepted by US universities, employees hired by USA companies, or lecturers booked to speak here. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the ban would be implemented starting 72 hours after being cleared by courts. The court will also hear oral arguments on the case in the fall.

As the nation's high court revived Trump's travel ban, which lower courts sidetracked by injunction earlier this year, its 16-page order revived debate for and against the controversial executive order.

He said in a statement that his "number one responsibility" is to keep the American people safe.

"What he [Trump] implemented never felt like a Muslim ban, because the largest Muslim countries in the world are unaffected by it". For persons with "close familial relationships" and for those with documented relationships with employers and schools, for instance, the injunctions against the order shall remain in effect pending final resolution of the cases.

This is due to their potential inability to prove a relation to the United States that the Court's ruling calls for. And so the 90-day travel ban does not apply to them.

Donald Trump : President says N.Korea threat must be 'dealt with rapidly'
Forces Korea has deployed a dozen long-range air-launched precision-guided cruise missiles in Gunsan, North Jeolla Province. The Gwangju Uprising was a protest demanding suffrage in the presidential elections, and ended up being a major genocide.

Several freezes on the order from courts across the country quickly followed, culminating in a nationwide restraining order on the ban passed by a federal judge in Washington state.

That includes foreign nationals with familial connections in the US, students who have already been admitted into an American university, workers with existing job offers in the USA and lecturers who have accepted invitations to conferences in the U.S. "The U.S. government has told us refugees booked will continue to travel through July 6 but then we do not know what will happen after that".

This case is the Trump's first and major challenge at the Supreme Court where he restored a 5-4 conservative majority with the appointment of Neil Gorsuch, he joined the bench in April.

"The Trump Administration has insisted from the start that this executive order is not reviewable by the courts". His administration's implementation plans, largely orchestrated by White House adviser Stephen Miller, focus on refusing entry to people who are unable to show a substantial and pre-existing tie to a person or institution in the United States.

Will people get stuck in airports because of the travel ban?

Anyone with a "bona fide relationship" with a person or organization in America will be allowed to enter, as will anyone who already has a valid visa to enter the United States. He also added a cheeky aside that "I agree with the Court's implicit conclusion that the Government has made a strong showing that it is likely to succeed on the merits-that is, that the judgments below will be reversed".
