Local reaction to Supreme Court's partial travel ban is cautious

The March 6 executive order, revised from the earlier version that was blocked by courts, called for a 90-day ban on travellers from six countries - Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Refugees are also banned from entering the United States for 120-days.

Iranians at Tehran's global airport say they don't expect to encounter any difficulties traveling to the United States despite the Supreme Court's partial reinstatement of President Donald Trump's travel ban.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit eventually said the order could not be implemented, infuriating the president, who said he would take the case to the Supreme Court.

Fereidoun and Hayedeh, who were bound for Los Angeles to visit their daughter and her husband, said they had visited the US every two to three years for the last decade.

The statement, which Macron has made before, is also used as a hashtag and title of an upcoming project. One man can't stop our clean energy revolution.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals later stayed both the six-country ban and cessation of the refugee program.

Lavinia Limon, CEO of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, told the Associated Press she was dismayed by the ruling, but insisted that her agency has "an existing relationship with incoming refugees, certified and arranged through the Department of State".

The president has denied that the ban targets Muslims but says it is needed "to protect the nation from terrorist activities" committed by citizens of the six countries.

"With many groups, it's clear-cut from the type of visa: Anyone coming in on family visa or employment visa, by their terms it's clear they have a bona fide relationship", he said.

Because the executive order was stopped by lower courts, travelers from those countries have been entering the United States following normal visa procedures. That would include students who have been admitted to a United States school and workers who have accepted an offer of employment from an American company, the court said.

"National security is not a talismanic incantation that, once invoked, can support any and all exercise of executive power", they added. It was blocked by the federal judges before going into effect on March 16 as planned. It allows foreign nationals to come here, as long as they have a "bona fide relationship" with a person or entity in the United States.

On the other hand, the justices said, relationships created for the purposes of evading the travel ban will not be considered valid.

Though Rice and the University of Houston declined to comment on Monday's ruling, many universities nationwide have opposed the travel ban. "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". "If a person thinking about applying to become a refugee emails a church in the USA and says 'please sponsor me to become a refugee, ' that would not qualify as a bona fide relationship, in my view". The justices also granted the Trump administration's request to allow the ban to go into effect, at least for would-be travelers who don't already have some connection to the United States.

That is bound to happen as Trump's victory has bitterly divided America and he took oath with historically low approval ratings amid nationwide protests.

Opponents welcomed the fact that the Supreme Court tempered the reach of the ban, as well as the prospect of the case being heard in the fall.

Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the USA -led coalition, said: "With every single allegation we will take it and look into it". In a news bulletin flashed on screen, it said the building had been used as a prison for a "large number of civilians".

Bryce Howard, 15, of Everett, Wash., wears a Trump hat as he snaps a photo during a visit to the Supreme Court in Washington, Monday, June 26, 2017, where justices issued their final rulings for the term. But he did not explain how that is connected or relevant to the travel ban.
