KU worldwide students should be safe from travel ban

The United States Supreme Court on Monday ruled in favour of President Donald Trump and reinstated his 90-day travel ban order for visitors coming from six Muslim majority countries.

As a result, people who do not have a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States would be denied entry once the order takes effect within 72 hours.

The high court's action on Monday was a per curium order, meaning that no specific author was identified, although three of the more conservative justices - Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch - all wrote separately that they supported going further by reversing the lower courts' injunctions in full and letting the ban go completely into effect.

The ban, which restricts foreign nationals from six Muslim-majority countries - Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - from entering the United States for a period of 90 days, as well as refugees from any country from entering the USA for 120 days, was blocked by federal circuit courts earlier this year prior to being implemented, on March 15.

The way it stands right now, citizens from those six aforementioned countries will be banned from entering the USA for 90 days unless they have an established relationship with an American person or entity.

"As President, I can not allow people into our country who want to do us harm", Mr Trump said.

Even with the U.S. Supreme Court's decision Monday to partially reinstate President Donald Trump's travel ban, pending a hearing, the University is saying that students and faculty traveling overseas should have no issues getting to the University.

The court is letting the Trump administration mostly enforce the ban, but did leave protections in place for people "with a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States", according to The New York Times.

Trump issued the order amid rising global concern about attacks carried out by Islamist militants like those in Paris, London, Brussels, Berlin and other cities.

Trump says in a statement that his "number one responsibility" is to keep the American people safe. "Guess what? The 90 and 120 days have passed of him being president so he is supposed to have what he promised when he implemented this order". The administration review should be complete before October 2, the first day the justices could hear arguments in their new term.

Following the Supreme Court ruling, the reformed travel ban can take effect as soon as Thursday.

"People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!", Trump tweeted June 5".

The court cited various statements made by Trump during the election campaign, including a demand for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States".

Protesters take part in a demonstration against President Trump's revised travel ban.

The Executive Orders are complicated.

However, until it can issue a definitive ruling, the court authorized the Trump administration to deny USA entry to people affected by the ban who do not have relatives in the U.S. or who have no previously established plans to work at companies or study at educational institutions in the US.

His administration's implementation plans, largely orchestrated by White House adviser Stephen Miller, focus on refusing entry to people who are unable to show a substantial and pre-existing tie to a person or institution in the United States.
