Trump's Travel Ban Gets A Temporary Lift - Here's What You Need To Knowby

As one of the biggest talking points of US President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office, the commander-in-chief has remained resolute and confident in his decision to opt to restrict the movements of certain internationals into the United States. The so-called ‘travel ban’ – phrasing which Trump himself initially derided but has since adopted via various tweets in recent weeks – focuses on a number of Muslim countries, and in its initial form, the measure would restrict the entry of thousands of people into the country, including those who have family in the US. The courts moved to block the measure – to the celebration of human rights activists the world over and to the consternation of the White House – but it seems a temporary lift may have come into effect.

The order had been ruled as unconstitutional by a number of courts earlier this year, and, as such, a block on the ban has remained ever since. However, the Supreme Court has advised that it will choose to hear on the case upon the return of justices this October – in the meantime largely waving the travel ban into effect, though not in the full form it had originally been reported to be. Trump’s team, of course, have taken the news as a victory – at least until fall, when the President’s lawyers will state the case against the ban being unconstitutional.

For those concerned about being affected by the lifting of the ban, Reuters has reported that the current form of the travel ban will only affect ‘foreign nationals who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States’. This, therefore, means that family members and legal citizens should be protected, by our reading – though it’s thought that the Supreme Court has appeared to honor the 120-day ban on refugees into the country as previously suggested earlier this year.

It is not clear whether or not the Justices of the Supreme Court will uphold the ban levied by lower courts earlier this year – but with three such Justices – including Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch – backing the President, it is not as cut and dried a matter as the media may have suggested in previous weeks. All eyes, therefore – as always – will be on the White House as well as the Supreme Court this coming October.
