Supreme Court Rules Travel Ban To Take Effect

The Supreme Court allowed the third version of the Trump administration’s travel ban to go into effect while legal challenges against it continue. This means the temporary stays are no longer in effect and the full travel bans take place, but the Court has urged lower courts to hurry up and render a decision.

The court’s order means that Trump can begin to fully enforce its new restrictions on visas from eight countries, six of them mostly Muslim. Most citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea are banned from entering the United States, along with some people from Venezuela.

Iranians will be able to come as student and exchange visitors, although they will face enhanced security screening. Tourist visas and other types of visas are banned (for now).

In short, the temporary orders temporarily allowing people from Iran to come with proof of bona fides is no longer in effect until there is a final decision on the merits. This case indicates, however, that the Supreme Court has acknowledged the broad powers of the president to protect national security.
