American Supreme Court granted Trump's provisional ban

Governor Dannel Malloy reacted to the Supreme Court ruling to move President Donald Trump's travel ban forward.

The court is expected to decide within days if the Trump administration can enforce it's travel ban.

Trump's new March 6 order banned people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the USA for 90 days and barred all refugees for 120 days, but on May 25, the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals voted to sustain a March 16 decision by a Maryland federal district judge to stay its enforcement.

That is because the high court effectively allowed Trump to ban from coming to the United States only citizens of six majority-Muslim countries "who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States".

The high court allowed parts of the travel ban to stand and agreed to hear the case in the fall. "It is the moral imperative of our nation to provide a place of refuge for those seeking safety from war and oppression - an obligation we must continue to meet".

Thus, the decision will allow the 120-day ban on refugees to be implemented, given that those people are - by definition - fleeing their countries of origin and have no prior relationship with USA individuals or institutions. The executive order states the suspension is necessary to allow the government to implement "adequate standards.to prevent infiltration by foreign terrorists". A court in California, though, struck down even the refugee restrictions, arguing the president broke the law because he never drew a specific connection between his actions and the national security concerns he said spurred him.

"Minutes after the ruling, both sides were fighting over what that meant".

The court, narrowing down the judgments of lower courts that have completely blocked its executive order since March 6, said it will open a hearing in October on the legality of this most important Trump decision in the first months of his presidency.

At Dulles Airport outside Washington, lawyers are planning to be there to assist travelers as necessary and also show customs and border agents they are watching, said Sirine Shebaya, a board member with the Dulles Justice Coalition.

"Both sides are gearing up for what's next".

A prominent Iranian lawmaker has denounced the Supreme Court's partial reinstatement of President Trump's travel ban, claiming that it's an "obvious breach" of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, including the United States.

There's a reason for these wildly differing takes: The decision itself is confusing and ambiguous. "The answer the Supreme Court gave yesterday is that some parts of the order are going to be constitutional and some parts are going to be unconstitutional". The court's baby-splitting shields the president and his opponents from an outright loss or a clear-cut victory.
