Ruling in travel ban leaves myriad questions unanswered

Edmund Collier | 28 June, 2017, 03:48

The decision came down Monday.

Trump said the ban will come in effect within 72 hours of the court's decision.

The justices granted parts of his administration's emergency request to put the March 6 executive order into effect immediately while the legal battle continues. The court allowed a limited version of the refugee ban, which had also been blocked by courts, to go into effect.

The March 6 motion called for a 90-day ban on passengers entering the U.S. from Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, and a 120-day ban on all refugees, using that time to allow the government to introduce more stringent checks on borders.

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court said that the ban can be enforced for refugees and travelers who do not have close personal relations living in the United States.

U.S. State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said it hasn't been decided how the ban will be implemented.

Mr Modi could come out feeling like "the partnership continues to be on a strong and stable footing" she said. We will destroy radical Islamic terrorism ". "Both - India and the US - are global engines of growth".

The Supreme Court on Monday lifted the injunction from Trump's travel ban while making sure the ban will not effect people who are able to prove ties to American institutions or United States citizens. It will be no surprise if the Trump administration's reviews conclude that something like the temporary bans, as modified by Monday's court ruling, should be kept in place indefinitely. But she said that refugees who prove a "bona fide" connection to the US are not subject to that cap.

According to the decision, those excluded from the ban would include people with family members in the U.S., those who have been accepted in American universities, or those who have been offered work with a USA company. It noted that Trump's executive order already allowed for case-by-case waivers for people with connections to the country. But, the justices wrote, "not so someone who enters into a relationship simply to avoid" the travel ban. Because of that, "it shouldn't have a dramatic impact like what we saw on January 27", when there was chaos at global airports in various USA cities after the first order was signed. He added that he can not allow people into our country who want to do us harm.

Wang says that while anyone with a valid visa or green card status should be eligible to enter the country, "the situation has been quite fluid, so we strongly advise people to seek advice from their International Students and Scholars Office advisor". They said there was "no big change" in the visa process when they applied at the U.S. Consulate in Armenia.

Some lawyers also said the vagueness of the "bona fide" standard was license for the Trump administration to interpret it broadly.

But rights group said they did not expect chaos this time around. "But in the terms of the other part - any US entity - what kind of relationships are you going to be showing there and how they will put that into practice is hard to say". Neither the State Department nor Homeland Security has yet issued guidelines to refugee agencies on how to handle the Supreme Court stay of the lower courts' action stopping the implementation of the ban.

Although the decision of the Supreme Court was per curiam, Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by justices Samuel Alito and Neal Gorsuch, added an opinion in which he expressed his view that the executive order should have been upheld in its entirety.
