Supreme Court Reinstates Part of Trump's Travel Ban

Q&A Murkiness follows Supreme Court's action on travel ban Perdue applauds travel ban reinstatement

The clarification follows a Supreme Court stay of a 9th circuit block of Trump's March executive order that largely re-implemented the administration's intended travel ban.

CBS Local- The United States Supreme Court made a decision to allow parts of President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban to go into effect immediately, while also allowing to hear arguments for and against it in October.

The other basic portion of Trump's initiative, which will remain partially blocked, will be the prohibition on United States entry to citizens of Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen and Libya, although entry will be allowed for people from those countries who have relatives or job contracts in the US.

The State Department said it would begin enforcing the travel ban "in a professional, organised and timely way" within 72 hours, in line with a memorandum signed by Trump earlier this month.

McDaniel says Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch, the high court's three most conservative members, support Trump's policy and want the ban to go further by going into effect immediately.

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.

The administration review should be complete before October 2, the first day the justices could hear arguments in their new term.

Perdue, one of Georgia's two Republicans in the Senate, issued a statement praising the court for its decision to overrule two appellate courts that had blocked the president's executive order for a 90-day halt on immigration from six primarily Muslim countries.

Omar Jadwat, senior counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, said that the ACLU and resettlement agencies will keep a close eye on how the government implements the Court's ruling, especially at airports and border entries.

Painless Flu Vaccine Patch?
Nadine Rouphael , first author of the study and professor at the Emory University School of Medicine said in a news release. The team also found that the drugs in the patch could stay viable for over a year, without the need for refrigeration.

"The US president's stances towards Muslims during his presidential campaign and after taking power are clear examples of such humiliating approach", Qassemi noted.

"Rather than keeping anyone safe, this ban demonizes millions of innocent people and creates anxiety and instability for people who want to visit a relative, work, study, return to the country they call home, or just travel without fear".

Dane said the court's action was intriguing. So would a worker who accepted a job from an American company, a student enrolled at a USA university or a lecturer invited to address a US audience.

The Supreme Court lets almost all of Trump's policy be enforced as it hears his appeal.

"I couldn't give you a full opinion, but my instinct is given what I know about the president's constitutional authority on immigration issues is that the Supreme Court probably landed in the right place", said Gov. Chris Christie.

They said they would have revived the travel ban in its entirety while the court considered the case.

It comes as Donald Trump's been given the go-ahead to partially introduce his travel ban. That was also struck down by lower courts.

"When it comes to refugees who lack any such connection to the United States, for the reasons we have set out, the balance tips in favor of the government's compelling need to provide for the nation's security".
