The Supreme Court ruled Monday that the latest iteration of President Trump’s travel ban can go into effect, even as legal challenges continue in lower courts.
The court’s order means that the Trump administration can fully enforce its new restrictions on travel from eight countries, six of them predominantly Muslim. The ruling will bar most citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea from entering the United States, along with some Venezuelans. The latest version was issued in September, shortly before the Supreme Court was set to hear oral arguments on the previous iteration of the travel ban. Last month, the Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to allow Trump’s latest travel ban to take effect, following an appeals court ruling that blocked part of it from being enacted.
