“Let me be clear – this decision is not a victory for President Trump,” Jayapal added. “The Supreme Court has not given him the green light to unilaterally ban travelers to the United States. In fact, the court makes it clear that Trump cannot restrict many immigrants from seeking a better life in the U.S.”
The Supreme Court’s decision allows the Muslim Ban to only apply to individuals with no connection to any person or entity in the United States. However, the ban will not apply to individuals with a “bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.” In other words, individuals with family ties, admission to a U.S. university, employment offer from a U.S. company, or an invitation to address an American audience would be allowed to enter the United States.
