This morning, the Supreme Court granted the Trump administration's request to review
the injunction on his revised travel ban. The Executive Order, issued March 6, 2017, suspended all entries into the US by nationals of six countries, including Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, for 90 days. The country's highest court has granted the government's petition for a stay of the preliminary injunctions entered by the Fourth and Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeal.
The Fourth and Ninth Circuit courts previously granted an injunction to block enforcement of the Executive Order. The Supreme Court has ordered injunctions be lifted except as it applies to lawful permanent residents, to individuals with a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the US; that is individuals with close US citizen family members, individuals who have been admitted to institutions of higher education in the US, and those employed by US companies.
The Supreme Court's decision creates new immigration guidelines that will affect travel and give border patrol agents all the discretion to make immigration determinations with few guarantees of due process of law. It is not clear whether the government will continue to grant relief to those closely related to individuals who are not citizens or residents or what the guidelines will be used to evaluate the relationships they have established with those in the United States.
