Supreme Court agrees to hear Trump travel ban appeal, allows partial ban

The Supreme Court will hear the Trump Administration’s arguments on the legality of the revised travel ban in their next session in October, and in the meantime, will allow a limited version to go ahead.

The ban, in its second iteration, seeks to ban travel from six Muslim-majority countries as well as suspend the country’s refugee program. It has been criticized as unconstitutional by many from both sides of the aisle, although it was one of Trump’s key campaign policies that propelled him to the White House.

In explaining their decision to allow the appeal process to go through, the Supreme Court stated that the ban applied to “to foreign nationals who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States” and to whom the Constitution did not apply.

Until they hear the case, a 120 day ban on refugees entering the country will go into place.
