Washington Post: Supreme Court Allows Trump Travel Ban Enforcement, but Says It Must Allow Broader Exemptions for Relatives


The Washington Post reports that the Supreme Court has temporarily allowed the Trump administration to enforce restrictions on the nation’s refugee program, but it let stand a lower court order from Hawaii on the expanded definition of close family ties, including that grandparents and other relatives who want to travel to the United States must be admitted while the case proceeds on appeal to the Ninth Circuit. The high court is set to hear oral arguments on the travel ban in October after the justices return from their summer recess.
