United States travel ban criteria could trigger fresh lawsuits

In a significant victory for the president, the justices partially reinstated the travel ban pending the court's review next term.

Entry to the United States is suspended for 90 days for nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen who have no connection to the United States.

The Supreme Court's decision lifted the stay to the extent that refugees who do not have a bona fide relationship to a person or an entity in the United State will be subject to the ban.

But individuals without such ties have no constitutional protections, and thus no standing to challenge the ban, the court ruled.

"A foreign national who wishes to enter the United States to live with or visit a family member ... clearly has such a relationship".

The ruling also said it would permit a 120-day ban on all refugees entering the USA to go into effect.

Overall, in ruling that only those potential immigrants already personally connected to an American citizen or entity are temporarily exempt from the authority of the executive order until the final resolution of the case, the Supreme Court has substantially upheld a significant part of the executive power by which the order was issued.

Immigration lawyers and rights groups, many of whom camped out at airports offering legal help to immigrants and refugees after Trump's initial executive orders were signed, say they are preparing to do so again if their questions are not answered.

According to Reuters, the court granted parts of his administration's emergency request to put the order into effect immediately while the legal battle continues.

The Supreme Court's opinion paves the way for ban to go into effect in as little as 72 hours.

President Trump was quick to declare Monday's travel ban decision by the Supreme Court a "clear victory" for him.

The United States President Donald Trump has said, the Supreme court's ruling which partially reinstates his travel ban is a clear victory for the USA national security. Nauert clarified that refugees who hold a "bona fide relationship to the U.S." will be unaffected by the administration's 50,000 cap. It was blocked by the federal judges before going into effect on March 16 as planned.

For individuals, a close family relationship is required. Justice Clarence Thomas, writing on behalf of Justices Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito, said the entire travel order should be implemented because the partial implementation is not enforceable.

"We don't have a definition here at the State Department for that yet".

In an unsigned order issued on the Court's last day before its summer recess, the justices scheduled oral arguments in the case for when they return in October. The new technology comes as the airline is facing a tough travel environment with the implementation of the travel ban, as well as the ban on large laptops and electronic devices.

Hamilton advises the Trump administration to argue the case based on a particular section of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

But state Rep. Al Baldasaro, a Londonderry Republican and Trump supporter, said critics fail to appreciate that the President is taking steps to keep Americans safe against terrorists.
