Trump Muslim Travel Ban Reinstated Until Supreme Court Hearing

According to recent reports, US President Donald Trump’s questionable travel ban in January this year, limiting travel from Muslim countries around the world, has been mostly reinstated until the Supreme Court hears the case against it in October.

On Monday the Supreme Court allowed the Trump administration’s travel ban to continue from the lower tier court rulings that stacked up against the President in recent months. Justices said they will decide later in the year whether the ban should be ripped down or upheld.

The Supreme Court will hear the discussion in October, allowing for now a temporary ban from six Muslim-majority countries.

The ban however, will not apply to those with a ‘bona fide’ relationship with a person or entity in the US, such as those who have family in the US, or have been admitted to a school or hired by a firm in the US.

“Denying entry to such a foreign national does not burden any American party by reason of that party’s relationship with the foreign national,” the court said.
