The Supreme Court on Monday revived parts of President Donald Trump’s travel ban on people from six Muslim-majority countries.A full hearing on the issue is set for October.It’s unclear what will ultimately constitute a “bona fide relationship”, though the ruling suggested that an American job, school enrollment or a close relative could meet that threshold.Trump has since revised his order so it will only affect the issuance of new visas to people in Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.The court also agreed to take up a case that touches on Kennedy’s landmark 2015 opinion clearing the way for same-sex marriage. But Trump does business in Saudi Arabia, not in the six banned countries. During the 2016 presidential race, Trump campaigned for “a total and complete shutdown” of Muslims entering the United States.He urged the Trump administration to include refugee service providers as well as national security and immigration experts in a timely, transparent and efficient review of the existing refugee resettlement program.A lecturer invited to speak before an American audience.As noted in our previous alert on this issue, on June 1, 2017, the United States Department of Justice filed an emergency request to the United States Supreme Court asking that it reinstate key provisions of the “Executive Order Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” issued on March 6, 2017 (the “new E.O.”).”A foreign national who wishes to enter the United States to live with or visit a family member … clearly has such a relationship”.
