Iranians at Tehran's global airport say they don't expect to encounter any difficulties traveling to the United States despite the Supreme Court's partial reinstatement of President Donald Trump's travel ban. The court lifted the lower courts' injunctions and allowed the order's travel ban to go into effect "against foreign nationals overseas who have no connection to the United States at all".

The US Supreme Court upheld some portions of President Donald Trump's revised travel ban on Monday (June 26), setting the stage for arguments on the case in October.

The Trump administration can now enforce the ban against some travellers while it waits for the Supreme Court case to be heard in October.

Proponents of letting students use public money to go to religious schools, including Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, applaud the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that a Lutheran church was wrongly denied a state grant.

First, the Supreme Court granted the government's petition for certiorari.

— A foreign national who seeks to enter the United States to live with a family member, such as a spouse or mother-in-law.

Trump's initial travel ban, issued without warning on a Friday in January, brought chaos and protests to airports nationwide as travelers from seven targeted countries were barred even if they had prior permission to come to the U.S. The State Department canceled up to 60,000 visas but later reversed that decision.

The U.S. high court decision is a political victory for Trump after two lower appeal courts overturned his earlier attempts at imposing a ban.

The 90-day ban is necessary to allow an internal review of screening procedures for visa applicants from the countries, the administration says.

The Supreme Court on Monday reinstated part of Trump's travel ban, allowing certain parts to go into effect.

"It looks like the Supreme Court has created a significant issue for lower courts to grapple with in the coming months", Yuille said.

The U.S.travel ban does not apply to Egypt but to Yemen and five other Muslim-majority countries - Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Sudan.

Trump will be allowed to forge ahead with a limited version of his ban on travel from six mostly Muslim countries to the US.

"From day one, President Trump and his national security team took swift action to protect Americans by placing a temporary pause on admissions to the US from countries that pose national security concerns".

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

The justices lifted a pair of injunctions on Trump's executive order, Ingraham's website, LifeZette noted.

"Certainly in the case of refugees, this order will have a tragic toll on those who have fled for their lives and played by our rules to find refuge in the United States".

There's a reason for these wildly differing takes: The decision itself is confusing and ambiguous. Judges found the executive order violated existing immigration legislation. But it doesn't make much sense as a matter of law.
