On June 26, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari and decided to consolidate two key cases in the travel and refugee ban litigation. Even though the Court will hear cases on the revised travel and refugee bans when their next session begins in October, the Court has already allowed parts of the travel ban to go into effect in as little as 72 hours from 6/26/2017. A partial stay of the injunctions that had prevented implementation of the travel ban, the refugee ban, and the refugee cap have been granted. The Court explained that, for now, any person who has a “bona fide relationship with any person or entity in the United States” is exempt from the ban. However, all other foreign nationals are subject to the provisions of the travel and refugee ban. The travel ban bars people from 6 majority Muslim countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen (notably not any U.S. allies). The Court ruled that even if the refugee cap has been reached, a refugee with a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a U.S. person or entity may not be excluded. The Department of Homeland Security issued a statement confirming that it would provide details on implementation after consultation with the Department of Justice and the Department of State.
