According to our source, Western Journalism, Monday, the United States Supreme Court said that key parts of President Donald Trump’s travel ban and immigration executive order with countries with a high-frequency range of terrorism might take effect while the Court considers the case.
Most of the orders that were blocking President Trump’s travel ban, were lifted by the Supreme Court and allowed to be put into effect in most cases. Exceptions will only cover the travel ban for individuals with a “bona fide relationship” with an American.

Before the Court is gathered to decide if President Trump acted within his powers to implement the order, this order would be almost expired because the order limits the travel from these countries for 90 days and suspends the refugee program for 120 days.
The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals blocked President Trump’s order in May, affirming a federal judge decision in March.
The 4th Circuit Court determined the order contained “vague words of national security,” however its context “drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination.”
They Court concluded this mostly based on Trump’s campaign rhetoric as a presidential candidate.
“Then-candidate Trump’s campaign statements reveal that on numerous occasions, he expressed anti-Muslim sentiment, and well as his intent, if elected, to ban Muslims from the United States,” said the court.
Jeffery Wall, Acting Solicitor General said that the court “failed to adhere to foundational legal rules” in its ruling to stop the travel ban.
“The Constitution and acts of Congress confer on the president broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens outside the United States when he deems it in the nation’s interest,” Wall said.
Saying that the order violated the immigration law, the executive order was also blocked by the 9th Circuit Court.
