Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling which in effect did, 3 things: granted the Trump administration request for a full hearing which will be held in October; overturned the travel ban for those persons with no bona fide relationship with a US person or entity; and, upheld the injunction on the remaining parts of the ban. As a practical matter, this should mean that persons, from the affected countries, with existing work visas and/or advance parole cards should be able to freely travel consistent with the conditions of those already issued documents however, given the discretionary power given to CBP officials, we recommend that you carefully consider whether traveling is in fact, necessary and prior to undertaking any travel, consult with your immigration attorney to be prepared. The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has issued a press release on the ruling.
