Trump News: Supreme Court Upholds Trump’s Travel Ban: 4 Changes to Expect from the Ruling and How It Will Affect You

337

The Supreme Court has upheld President Donald Trump’s travel ban. Nexter.org decided to dive deeper into the new ruling and explain what changes should everyone expect starting from November 2018. 

Big victory for White House

In a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court upheld President Trump’s most recent travel ban.

The latest version of President Trump’s order imposing limits on travel from several predominantly Muslim nations. The first version was issued in January 2017, and the most recent, indefinite ban went fully into effect in December.

The court says the policy is based on legitimate national security grounds.

The President called the ruling “a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution” and said he felt vindicated.

What countries are affected? 

The most recent order banned most citizens of Iran, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Chad and North Korea from entering the United States (Chad was removed from the list in April). Visitors from Iraq and Sudan were banned under previous versions, but are now allowed.

Reasons for suspending

The rules vary by country.

How your relatives will come

If you’re a legal US resident or American citizen and have family from one of the affected countries, close relatives might still be able to come to the US.

Parents, spouses or children could still be admitted into the country, the White House said. But families won’t get categorical waivers; instead, waivers would be granted on a case-by-case basis.

What does the ruling mean for travelers?

Although the administration has argued it was not banning travel from the list of countries entirely, the state department’s own numbers have shown a minimal number of exceptions have been granted.

Citizens of the banned countries can apply for waivers on a case-by-case basis, such as seeking to travel to the US for medical treatment, to visit a close family member or for business obligations.
