Supreme Court to take up Trump’s travel ban, let parts of it take effect

The Supreme Court agreed Monday to hear arguments on President Donald Trump’s travel ban executive order — and will allow parts of the directive to take effect in the meantime.

The action is a tempered legal victory for the president, who suffered a string of defeats in lower courts that crippled his effort to halt issuance of most visas to citizens of six majority Muslim countries and to stop admission of refugees from across the globe.

The high court’s action means parts of the order Trump re-issued in March will likely go into effect until the court decides on the legality of the measure, although the court limited the order’s impact on foreigners with clear ties to individuals, businesses or organizations in the United States.
