Trump admin moves SC against travel ban ruling


Washington D.C: Lawyers for the Trump Administration on Friday urged the Supreme Court to resolve the uncertainty created by last month’s ruling on which foreign nationals are exempt from the ban.

The Supreme Court pronounced last month that the travel ban must not apply to those people with a “bonafide connection” to a person or entity in the US while the case is pending full argument this fall, a close familial relationship is required.”

A federal judge in Hawaii  on Thursday ruled that the administration’s decision to keep out some foreign nationals with close family members (like grandparents) but not others (like spouses) defied common sense, and was not in line with the spirit of Supreme Court’s decision.
