The US Supreme Court has upheld the President Trump travel ban by quashing an appeal that had curbed the currently expired version of the travel ban. This was just a symbolic victory for the President Trump travel ban owing to the legal context being outdated.
The updated version of the President Trump travel ban had restricted entry of the travelers from 6 Islamic majority nations to the US for 90 days. The decree of March 6 opposed by states of Hawaii and Maryland was suspended, as quoted by the New Indian Express.
The suspension decision in June and May was upheld by the courts of appeal in San Francisco, California, and Richmond, Virginia. The suspension in Hawaii is still valid though its days are numbered.
At the end of September, White House had issued a new decree of the President Trump travel ban. This permanently bans citizens of 7 nations from arriving at the US in the interest of its national security. A lawsuit over this updated travel ban decree has been filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.
Nationals of 8 nations now face fresh restrictions for their arrival to the US. The new proclamation was signed by President Trump to replace the expiring travel ban order. The new travel ban affects nationals from Yemen, Syria, Somalia, North Korea, Libya, Iran, Chad, and selected from Venezuela. It will become effective from 18 October 2017.
The restrictions are ranging from an indefinite ban on visas for nationals of some nations such as Syria to being more specific for some. For instance, in the case of Venezuela, the suspension of non-immigrant visas for its nationals is applicable only for specific government officers and their immediate family members.
