The issue of the travel ban is going to the Supreme Court.

One of the first big issues President Donald Trump has tried to take on is his campaign promise of issuing a travel ban to several muslim countries around the world.

This travel ban is the one that got acting Attorney General Sally Yates fired earlier this year, and one that has been a big topic of debate within the past few months.

The Supreme Court will decided whether the new revised travel ban is lawful in a case that is going to have plenty of eyes on the matter as a new precident may be create.

His new travel ban basically banned or limited significantly travel from Muslim countries as that set up for new screening and vetting procedures.

Two other attempts  have stopped the travel ban executive order from going into motion following two decision in which federal courts ruled it unconstitutional. Those decisions will now be stayed as the order is reviewed by the Supreme Court.

According to the New York Daily News:

The court ruled that the Trump administration can begin to ban “foreign nationals who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity” from the half-dozen targeted Muslim-majority countries, but upheld lower courts’ injunctions keeping the ban from going into place for anyone with ties to the U.S. until the Supreme Court hears full arguments on the ban in a few months.

“An American individual or entity that has a bona fide relationship with a particular person seeking to enter the country as a refugee can legitimately claim concrete hardship if that person is excluded. As to these individuals and entities, we do not disturb the injunction,” the justices wrote. “But when it comes to refugees who lack any such connection to the United States, for the reasons we have set out, the balance tips in favor of the Government’s compelling need to provide for the Nation’s security.”
