White House 'not surprised' by travel ban ruling — The Latest”

But the action indicates that the high court might eventually approve the latest version of the ban, announced by President Donald Trump in September. The Supreme Court urged the appeals courts to issue swift rulings.

The US Supreme Court will allow the Trump administration to enforce its travel ban on six majority-Muslim countries. They argued that such a travel ban discriminates against Muslims. "He has repeatedly confirmed it, including just last week on Twitter".

Unlike the earlier bans that were temporary, the latest ban is "an indefinite one, deepening and prolonging the harms a stay would inflict", the brief submitted by Washington lawyer Neal K. Katyal who is representing Hawaii stated.

A man holds a sign reading "NYC hearts Muslims" as two other people hold signs reading "Back the Ban" and "Keep Syrians Out" at protests against and for President Donald Trump's limited travel ban, approved by the U.S. Supreme Court, in New York City June 29, 2017.

The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

Trump had promised as a candidate to impose "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States".

The lower courts said that this would include grandparents, grandchildren, brothers- and sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieves, nephews, and cousins into the States. The court's order said the appeals courts should decide the cases "with appropriate dispatch".

Now, those relationships will no longer provide a blanket exemption from the ban, although visa officials can make exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

Yemeni rebels killed their onetime ally Ali Abdullah Saleh, the country's former president, as they gained the upper hand in days of fighting with his forces for control of the capital, Sanaa.

Trump's ban also covers people from North Korea and certain government officials from Venezuela, but the lower courts had already allowed those provisions to go into effect.

The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments on the merits of Hawaii's challenge on Wednesday in Seattle.

"I think it's tipping the hand of the Supreme Court", Levine said. While the restrictions differ slightly by country, most citizens of these countries will be prohibited from emigrating to the US permanently and many will be prevented from studying, working, or visiting the US. "We continue to stand for freedom, equality, and for those who are unfairly being separated from their loved ones".
