Supreme Court Approves Major Elements of Trump’s Travel Ban But Creates Back Door Too

The Supreme Court removed the injunctions by lower courts that previously blocked President Trump’s travel ban while awaiting the hearing in October.  They approved Trump’s ban against entry of foreign nationals from countries with high instances of terrorism for a 90-day period. However, they also exempted anyone that has a ‘relationship’ with refugees already in the US.  The Court also agreed to Trump’s order to reduce the number of refugees 110,000 to 50,000. [It remains to be seen how loosely the administration defines the word ‘relationship’ and how lax it is in demanding proof of that relationship. This feature could be interpreted in such a way that almost anyone could enter merely by claiming to have a personal or business relationship with a previous refugee – with no proof required. Voters beware.] –GEG
