The Trump administration received the go-ahead from the Supreme Court to begin enforcing part of Trump’s travel ban and agreed to hear the administration’s appeal of lower court rulings.
On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration can begin enforcing part of Trump’s executive order restricting travel from six predominately Muslim countries.
NBC News reports that “Monday’s ruling said the ban cannot be applied to visa applicants who have a close relationship to a family member in the U.S. or who want to come here to study or accept a job offer.”
However, “the ban can now be enforced against all other visa applicants in the six affected countries.”
Continuing, NBC New reports that: “The court’s unsigned order was unanimous on granting the administration’s appeal. The only noted dissent came from Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch, who said they would have allowed the travel ban to be enforced in full.”
