The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear Trump’s travel ban case. Ahead of that, the Supreme Court reinstates Trump’s travel ban.
Supreme Court Reinstates Trump’s Travel Ban
Per Market Watch:
The ruling grants a Trump administration stay of lower court rulings that had piled up against the president.
The Supreme Court will hear arguments in October, and meanwhile, will allow a temporary ban from six Muslim-majority countries.
However, the ban will not be able to be enforced for people with a “bona fide” relationship to the U.S., such as those with family members stateside, those who have been admitted to a college or hired by an employer.
Per Fox News:
In a victory for the Trump administration, the Supreme Court on Monday lifted key components of an injunction against the White House’s proposed ban on travel from six majority-Muslim nations, reinstating much of the policy and promising to hear full arguments in October.
The court’s decision means the justices will now wade into the biggest legal controversy of the Trump administration — Trump’s order temporarily restricting travel, which even Trump has termed a “travel ban.”
“An American individual or entity that has a bona fide relationship with a particular person seeking to enter the country as a refugee can legitimately claim concrete hardship if that person is excluded,” the Court wrote. “As to these individuals and entities, we do not disturb the injunction. But when it comes to refugees who lack any such connection to the United States, for the reasons we have set out, the balance tips in favor of the Government’s compelling need to provide for the Nation’s security.”
Judge Jeanine Pirro weighed in and gave her thoughts on the issue.

While this is far from a closed case, the temporary ban from the six countries will move forward.
