Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Trump Travel Ban Case

On Monday morning, the final day of its session, the Supreme Court announced that it will take up the case over Donald Trump's travel ban. Arguments on the case will be heard in October.


Mr. Trump’s revised executive order, issued in March, limited travel from 6 mostly Muslim countries for 90 days and suspended the nation’s refugee program for 120 days. The time was needed, the order said, to address gaps in the government’s screening and vetting procedures.


In response to the administration's request that the lower-court ruling be stayed while the case moves forward, the Supreme court will allow the ban to go into effect, except in the case of visitors with a "bona fide relationship" with people or entities in the United States. 


“We grant the government’s applications to stay the injunctions, to the extent the injunctions prevent enforcement of” Mr. Trump’s executive order “with respect to foreign nationals who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”
