Supreme Court Allows Portion of US President Trump’s Travel Ban


Time: 8:54 p.m. CEST

The Supreme Court decided on Monday allow a limited version of travel ban introduced by the U.S. President Donald Trump for six countries. The Court would reconsider the ban again in October, when the justices would discus the president’s broad powers in immigration matters, the Washington Post   writes. But, the ban “may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.” Those who have a family member or are students from the banned countries – Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, but admitted to a U.S. university could enter the U.S. The court would hear the case in October, but says the situation could change until then. President Trump restored a 5-4 majority for the conservatives after his nominee Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court in April. Trump declared “a clear victory for our national security.”
