#Trump travel ban on #Muslims has been approved - Cry #America


The U.S. Supreme Court largely revived President Donald Trump’s travel ban and said the justices will hear arguments in the fall.
The ban on people entering the U.S. from six mostly Muslim countries can apply for now to everyone except people who have a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States," the justices said in an unsigned opinion.
That includes people visiting a close family member, students who have been admitted to a university or workers who have accepted an employment offer, the court said. But the court said people can’t avoid the travel ban by entering into a relationship solely to enter the U.S.
Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch said they would have let the entire ban take effect immediately.
The order puts on hold much of the lower court rulings that said Trump overstepped his authority and unconstitutionally targeted Muslims. It reverses a string of courthouse setbacks for the president and his travel ban.
The policy will suspend entry into the U.S. by people from the six mostly Muslim nations for 90 days. It will now take effect in 72 hours, under the terms of a memo issued by Trump this month.
