The United States supreme court has said that it would hear the case against US President Donald Trump’s revised executive order temporarily banning nationals from six countries from traveling to the US, but also has allowed the ban to be partially implemented in the interim.
Trumps executive order had been blocked by lower courts with the prohibition on implementing the travel ban in large part by two US federal appeals courts ruling.
The case will now be heard when the supreme court convenes in October.
The court granted a partial stay on the lower court rulings while the case proceeds, permitting enforcement of the ban against nationals from the six countries applying for US travel visas who have never before traveled to the US and cannot prove family or business ties to the US.
The supreme court stated that the order “may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States,”
