The US Supreme Court has announced today it has partially lifted an injunction against U.S. President Donald Trump’s travel ban.
The highest court in America has also granted an emergency request from the White House that allows part of the refugee ban to go into effect.
The order seeks to place a 90-day ban on people from six, mainly Muslim, nations and a 120-day ban on refugees.
The announcement has come on the final day of the court’s term.
The court said in a ruling today that the ban can go into effect for foreigners who lack ‘a bona fide relationship’ with someone in the U.S.
Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch wrote that they would have allowed the travel ban to go into full effect, pending a review.
The court will take up the case in October where they will consider whether the policy will be upheld or struck down.
