USA top court partially lifts block on Trump travel ban

USA top court partially lifts block on Trump travel ban

The travel ban had been blocked by two lower courts, which ruled that Trump abused his authority and discriminated against Muslims as a religious minority by issuing the ban by executive order.

Amnesty International has condemned the US Supreme Court ruling that partially reinstates President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban on 6 Muslim-majority countries.

What the decision means in practical terms is that anyone coming to visit a family member in the United States, or anyone who has a relationship with a school, an employer, a nonprofit organization, or another entity in the United States, is exempted from the ban.

The March 6 order called for a 90-day ban on travellers from Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen and a 120-day ban on all refugees entering U.S. to enable the government to implement stronger vetting procedures.

The Supreme Court said it would hear arguments in the case in October.

Reacting to Monday's ruling, Trump said he felt vindicated by what he called "a clear victory for our national security".

"As president, I can not allow people into our country who want to do us harm", Trump said in a statement.

Innovations included a cycle-powered grinding system providing hydraulic power - an idea that led to a cascade of benefits. "It's been 17 years since Dunedin was part of Team New Zealand's national tour with the America's Cup in 2000".

Mr Trump tweeted: "Great day for America's future Security and Safety, courtesy of the U.S. Supreme Court".

A 120-day ban on refugees is also being allowed to take effect. "The Supreme Court cut back on them a bit, sort of nipped at the corners", said Dane.

A federal judge in Seattle blocked the order a week later, and Trump eventually revised it, dropping Iraq from the list and including reasons people might be exempted, such as a need for medical treatment.

The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the travel policy does not comply with federal immigration law, including a prohibition on nationality-based discrimination.

The union that represents Customs and Border Protection agents said Tuesday it wants the administration to provide detailed guidance to help avoid a repeat of the chaos that ensued in January. A new cap won't be in place until the start of the budget year in October, around the time that the Supreme Court considers the case. The new technology comes as the airline is facing a tough travel environment with the implementation of the travel ban, as well as the ban on large laptops and electronic devices.

Since the US began its system of vetting refugees in 1980, not a single person accepted as a refugee has been involved in a successful deadly attack on the United States. Perhaps the only groups of travelers that don't meet that standard are people with tourist visas and some refugees. "[It] will burden executive officials with the task of deciding - on peril of contempt - whether individuals from the six affected nations who wish to enter the United States have a sufficient connection with a person or entity in this country".

It noted that Mr Trump's executive order already allowed for case- by-case waivers for people with connections to the country.
