Supreme Court Allows Travel Ban to Take Full Effect

12/04/2017

The United States Supreme Court has allowed the latest version of President Trump's travel ban to take full effect by issuing orders granting the Trump Administration's request for stays of preliminary injunctions against the travel ban.

Prior to these orders, individuals with a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States could still enter the country despite the travel ban's restrictions. Most recently, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granted an emergency stay of some of the terms of District Court Judge Derrick Watson's preliminary injunction, which blocked the Trump administration from imposing the entire travel ban. The Supreme Court's orders stay Judge Watson's injunction and the injunction issued by District Court Judge Theodore Chuang.
