Supreme Court: Trump Travel Ban Here to Stay—for Now

Posted on December 6th, 2017 | Author: Raymond G. Lahoud

On Monday, the United States Supreme Court entered an order permitting the Administration to fully enforce the most recent travel ban, which bars most nationals from seven countries: Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, and Venezuela.  The Supreme Court’s summary, one-page decision stays several federal district court orders that prevented the Administration’s enforcement of the travel ban and ends the Court’s June 2017 decision to allow the then-version of the travel ban to remain in place, if travelers with certain connections to the United States could continue to travel to the United States.

The Supreme Court’s order is temporary, pending the outcome of the various federal circuit court of appeals matters that challenge the travel ban and any subsequent Supreme Court review of those challenges.
