The Supreme Court has reportedly agreed this morning to review President Donald Trump’s travel ban, granting it partial approval in the meantime.
According to Bloomberg, justices of the Supreme Court will hear arguments for and against the ban in the fall.
Until then, the ban on people entering the United States from six Muslim-majority countries can go forward, with the exception of people who have a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”
“That includes people visiting a close family member, students who have been admitted to a university or workers who have accepted an employment officer,” Bloomberg reports, adding that people will not be able to circumnavigate the ban “by entering into a relationship solely to enter the U.S.”
According to Reuters, which describes the Supreme Court’s decision as “a victory” for the President, the court is also prepared to “allow a 120-day ban on all refugees entering the United States” under the same conditions excluding those who can prove relationships.
Unsurprisingly, given the highly contentious nature of President Donald Trump’s travel ban, today’s news has prompted quite the triggering online.
This is a developing story for which the triggering is bound to grow. Stay tuned.
