Monday, The Supreme court has decided to partially lift the injunction on President Donald Trump’s travel ban, a cornerstone promise of his 2016 election campaign.
The ban, an order from President Donald Trump issued in the earlier days of his tenure aims to have a 90 day ban on travelers from six Muslim majority nations and a 120 day ban on refugees.
The ban affects citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia & Sudan.
Two separate federal rulings had already decided that the ban should be delayed until Judges decide whether it’s constitutional. The Supreme Court went against these rulings and instead stated that the ban should be allowed to be in place during the summer until the Court hears the lawsuits against it.
The Supreme Court issued a statement saying that the ‘travel ban’ can go into effect for those without a “bone fide” relationship with someone in the US.
The Justices are expected to consider whether the ban should be upheld or shot down in October.
The ban which is one of the current President’s most controversial orders has sparked mass outrage and protest throughout America and left Airport security confused with multiple people who had flown to the US being held in Airports and others not being allowed to board their flights.
