Today (Monday), the US Supreme Court approved a part of US President Donald Trump’s immigration ban against travelers from 6 Muslim-majority countries wishing to visit the US. Parts of the ban will go into effect until the case goes into hearing in October.

The Supreme Court’s decision is a victory for Trump as it rejected previous lower-court orders that prevented the ban. The judges also approved the 120-day suspension of the refugee program. According to the Supreme Court, the ban “may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”

Right after the terror attacks in London, Trump’s administration filed a request to the Supreme Court to approve the ban. Trump criticized the US Justice Department via Twitter and government officials regarding the ban.
