Travel Ban: Supreme Court partially lifts embargo on Trump's order

The Supreme Court's decision to partially reinstate President Donald Trump's temporary travel ban has left the effort to keep some foreigners out of the United States in a murky middle ground, with unanswered questions and possibly more litigation ahead. The entire Court, even the four liberals, agreed to hear the Trump Administration's appeal of appellate-court rulings blocking its immigration travel ban, and the Justices allowed almost all of the 90-day ban to proceed in the meantime. Bona fide connections to entities, it said, must be "formal" and 'documented.' That would include students who have been admitted to a USA school and workers who have accepted an offer of employment from an American company, the court said.

In a ruling earlier this month, the three justices of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals said that "immigration, even for the president, is not a one-person show".

Trump's initial travel ban, issued without warning on a Friday in January, brought chaos and protests to airports nationwide as travelers from seven targeted countries were barred even if they had prior permission to come to the U.S. The State Department canceled up to 60,000 visas but later reversed that decision.

The other basic portion of Trump's initiative, which will remain partially blocked, will be the prohibition on U.S. entry to citizens of Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen and Libya, although entry will be allowed for people from those countries who have relatives or job contracts in the US. "I want people who can love the United States and all of its citizens, and who will be hard-working and productive". The six nations are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

A 120-day ban on refugees is also being allowed to take effect on a limited basis.

The State Department said it will begin enforcing the ban in 72 hours "in an orderly fashion, consistent with the Supreme Court's unanimous order".

The ruling was seen as at least a partial victory for Trump in the biggest court case of his presidency.

After causing widespread disruptions at global airports and protests from Muslims, rights groups and others, the order was challenged and blocked by district courts in Hawaii and Washington.

Anyone with a school acceptance letter, job offer or family member already in the United States would likely be able to obtain a visa and travel as normal.

"Who is going to tell us what is the definition of "bona fide relationship?'" The hard job of judging foreigners" claimed connections could land back in the lower courts in Maryland and Hawaii that had originally blocked Trump's travel ban, said Stephen Vladeck, a professor University of Texas School of Law.

The administration had asked that the lower court ruling be stayed while the case moved forward.

Rep. Andy Biggs R-Gilbert, released a statement saying he was "pleased" with the court's decision "to remove the unconstitutional stay on most of President Trump's executive order". For people who want to come to the United States to work or study, "the relationship must be formal, documented and formed in the ordinary course, not for the objective of evading" the travel ban. "Certainly in the case of refugees, this order will have a tragic toll on those who have fled for their lives and played by our rules to find refuge in the United States".

"Courts have repeatedly blocked this indefensible and discriminatory ban", Jadwat said. There are five Republican appointees on the court and four Democratic appointees.

Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, wrote a concurrence arguing that the Court should have lifted the lower-court injunctions in toto.

The court put the travel ban against citizens of the six majority-Muslim countries on hold as applied to non-citizens with relationships with persons or entities in the United States.
