The Supreme Court allowed most of President Trump’s travel ban to be reinstated before the court hears the case in October.
The Supreme Court on Monday allowed most of the Trump administration’s travel ban to go forward before it hears a case on the matter in October. 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.
Fox News reports: 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.”
As TGP previously reported the Ninth Circuit Court ruled against President Trump and continued to block his travel ban in February. The Ninth Circuit is the most liberal court in the country — and is the most reversed court in the country.

Today was a huge victory for the American people. President Trump nominating Neil Gorsuch to be a Supreme Court Justice is arguably one of the most important things he could do during his first term.
