Supreme Court Reinstates Trump Travel Ban

Citizens Of Predominately Muslim Countries Prohibited From Entering U.S.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday reinstated the Trump Administration’s 90-day travel ban on people coming to the U.S. from six mostly Muslim countries.

The court overturned lower court orders that had blocked the administration from enforcing the ban.

The court, however, said that the administration can’t block foreigners “with a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”

The justices said that they would hear arguments in the case in October, but by then the case could be moot, especially if the administration immediately enforces the ban.

The administration said it wanted the ban to allow for an internal review of the screening procedures for visa applicants from the six countries Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

In lifting the injunctions that bared the administration from implementing the ban, the Supreme Court cited the federal government’s national security responsibilities.

“The interest in preserving national security is ‘an urgent objective of the highest order,’” the ruling said. “To prevent the Government from pursuing that objective by enforcing [Trump’s executive order] against foreign nationals unconnected to the United States would appreciably injure its interests, without alleviating obvious hardship to anyone else.”
