On Monday December 4, 2017 the Supreme Court gave its decision that the Trump administration can fully enforce the travel ban order issued by the administration earlier this year.
The Supreme Court has granted the permission to enforce the travel ban order at least for the next several weeks. The supreme court order states that the Trump Administration may enforce in full all of its tough new restrictions on entry into the U.S. of foreign nationals from six nations with Muslim population majorities.
The orders also means that even foreign nationals who have family ties in the U.S., or already have promises of jobs or study opportunities in this country, can be kept out for the time being.
The Supreme Court’s new orders, stated that the appeals (Fourth Circuit, for the Maryland case, and the Ninth Circuit, for the Hawaii case) courts are reviewing the cases on expedited schedules, and it also said that it expects them to make their decisions “with appropriate dispatch.”
It also means that the two cases will return to the Justices in time for review and a final decision during the Court’s current term, which is scheduled to run through late June.
In the latest version of the travel ban order, the restrictions on entry were made permanent, and applied to some or all foreign nationals of eight countries. These nations include Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, North Korea and of some individuals in Venezuela.
