SCOTUS Won't Let Trump Travel Ban Hit Grandparents and Other Family Members

The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) has Rejected the Trump Administration's effort to Subject Foreigners who are Grandchildren, Cousins or other Family Members of Americans, to the President's Travel Ban Executive Order, but it will allow the Administration to Block many Refugees for now.

The Trump Administration initially said Grandparents and Cousins did not Qualify for an Exemption to the Travel Ban, which was required by the High Court for Foreign Citizens with close Ties to U.S. People or Institutions.

But a Federal Judge in Hawaii Disagreed with the Administration's Interpretation.

The Judge also said Refugees assigned to a U.S. Resettlement Organization were Exempt from the Ban.

SCOTUS also sent back to the Lower Court to Review Refuges who are Sponsored by Resettlement Organizations to be Exempt and allowed to enter the Country.
