The Supreme Court is still allowing President Donald Trump’s travel ban to remain in effect, however it left intact a lower court’s recent opinion that tweaked the administration’s previous interpretation of their ruling. Now, the executive branch must allow a greater number of relatives into the United States. Here’s what you need to know:
- A win for Trump (kind of): The Supreme Court allowed the Trump administration to continue its enforcement on how refugees may enter the country.
- A loss for Trump: While parts of the ban will remain in effect, the Supreme Court also ruled that the administration must accept those entering the country with family ties including: grandparents, aunts and uncles and other relatives who live in the United States, according to the Washington Post.
- Why is that a loss for Trump?: When the Supreme Court ruled on the ban last month, the administration did not view those relatives as “close” family ties.
- Gorsuch remains loyal: In the order released Wednesday, Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito Jr. and Neil Gorsuch said they would have agreed with the Trump administration in putting an entire order from a lower court on hold.
- Who is affected: Under Trump’s travel ban visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen would be barred from entering the country.
