The Supreme Court said today that it is allowing parts of President Trump’s travel ban to go into effect and that the court will hear arguments in the case in October.
The announcement comes on the last day of the court’s term before summer recess.
In allowing parts of the travel ban to take effect, the court narrowed the scope of injunctions put on Trump’s executive order by lower courts.
The Supreme Court is allowing to go into effect the executive order’s temporary ban on entry into the U.S. of citizens of six Muslim-majority nations, but with an exception for people with bona fide connections to the United States. That includes foreign nationals with familial connections in the U.S., students who have been already admitted into an American university, or workers with existing job offers in the U.S.
