Murkiness follows Supreme Court's action on travel ban

Options for Supreme Court on Trump travel ban Supreme Court Could Rule On Travel Ban
Edmund Collier | 28 June, 2017, 04:18

"We will work with our civil rights partners to offer a legal and legislative response as the Muslim ban moves forward on the ground and in the Supreme Court".

TheNewsGuru.com reports that the President's March 6 executive order banned the issuance of new visas to people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days.

Dershowitz, who said he does not support Trump's order as a matter of policy, predicted SCOTUS will "generally support" the president's broad authority to control immigration into the USA with exceptions similar to the ones the court carved out yesterday for people with "credible claim of a bona fide relationship" with people or organizations in the country.

The case will be heard "during the first session of October Term 2017", as the government "has not requested that we expedite consideration of the merits to a greater extent", the court said.

The Supreme Court's decision said that in adding this distinction - relationships and ties - the government should be able to administer the Executive Order more easily.

"If a person does not have a valid visa and has applied for one", he says, "what we have heard is that the process of obtaining a new visa has slowed significantly".

That is the standard the lower courts should have followed in reviewing the complaints by individuals that their interests were harmed by the temporary travel ban. However, I'm particularly concerned that banning people from the United States due to their country of origin sends a chilling message to all global students that we are not a welcoming place.

Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, said the government has shown it is likely to win the legal case in the end.

Shortly after the court's ruling, the State Department notified all USA diplomatic posts of the decision and advised them to await instructions that would be forthcoming by the self-imposed implementation deadline on Thursday, according to officials familiar with the situation.

Ruling in travel ban leaves myriad questions unanswered
Some lawyers also said the vagueness of the "bona fide" standard was license for the Trump administration to interpret it broadly. It noted that Trump's executive order already allowed for case-by-case waivers for people with connections to the country.

On the other hand, the justices said, relationships created for the purposes of evading the travel ban will not be considered valid.

Can you explain the Supreme Court's decision?

It noted that Trump's executive order already allowed for case-by-case waivers for people with connections to the country.

Some members of Lexington's Muslim community are calling the supreme court's Monday decision to allow the President's travel ban, in part, disappointing. It blocks a ban for people who can demonstrate a US connection.

"As president, I can not allow people into our country who want to do us harm", he said.

The wording of the Supreme Court ruling is likely to cause confusion amongst United States immigration officials, with many pondering how a "bona fide relationship" will be judged. They said it violated federal immigration law and was discriminatory against Muslims, with all but the appeals court saying it is unconstitutional.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals later stayed both the six-country ban and cessation of the refugee program.

Trump rolled out a travel ban just a week after his January 20 inauguration, but lower federal courts have blocked it and a revised version - and one court also has blocked a 120-day halt on refugee arrivals in the United States.

Three of court's most conservative justices dissented in part. Rather than pursue an appeal, the administration said it would revise the policy. His injunction blocked the Trump administration from enforcing two sections of their revised travel ban. It is based on a memo issued by the Trump administration on June 14.
