UPDATE: Trump's Travel Ban

The US Supreme Court today approved a request from Donald Trump’s legal people to allow his on- off travel ban to take effect.

This bans national of Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen from coming to the US.

These are added to the citizens of North Korea and Venezuelan government people who are already banned.

However there are ongoing challenges to the ban still going through the lower courts so the situation may be short term.

The administration seems determined to ban travellers from those countries entering the US. The executive order was first passed in January .

There have been challenges to the legality of the order in various US courts. In February a Virginia district judge ruled that it was unconstitutional

The Hawaii court ruled that the ban was in effect anti Muslim by refuting the government assertion that it was not, despite the populations of the countries in question were more than 90% Muslim.
