Supreme Court reinstates Trump travel ban, will hear appeal
The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear the government’s appeal of lower court rulings blocking the immigration order from taking effect nationwide.This is a win for the Trump administration and it could get even better when the case is finally heard. The previous courts who heard the cases were selected by the Democrats because of the perceived bias of their judges.
The court also granted the government's request to reinstate part of Trump's travel ban, which would affect people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
As a result of the decision, people who do not have a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States would be barred from entry. People who can show they have a relationship to a person or entity will be allowed to enter the country.
The unsigned order putting part of the ban in place would be effective within 72 hours.
Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, along with the newest Justice, Neil Gorsuch, Trump's nominee to the court earlier this year, wanted to lift the entire ban, according to the order.
