Supreme Court Allows Parts Of Trump’s Travel Ban To Take Effect
The Supreme Court is allowing a limited version of President Trump’s refugee and travel ban to take effect, while deciding to hear arguments about the entire ban this fall. The ruling has cleared the way for a temporary ban on travelers from six majority Muslim countries, but with an exception: the ban “may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."
We discuss what’s behind the Supreme Court’s action and the controversy surrounding it with Michael Jarecki, the Chicago chapter chair for the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Jarecki was one of the lead coordinators of legal counsel on call at O’Hare airport for those detained under President Trump’s travel ban.
