    From Supreme Court allows limited version of Trump’s travel ban to take effect and will consider case in fall:

    The Supreme Court agreed Monday to allow a limited version of President Trump’s ban on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries to take effect and will consider in the fall the president’s broad powers in immigration matters in a case that raises fundamental issues of national security and religious discrimination.

    The court made an important exception: It said 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.”

    In the unsigned opinion, the court said that a foreign national who wants to visit or live with a family member would have such a relationship, and so would students from the designated countries — Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who were admitted to a U.S. university.

    The court said it would hear the case when it reconvenes in October. But it also indicated in the ruling that things may change dramatically by then. It asked the parties to address whether the case would be moot by the time it hears it; the ban is supposed to be a temporary one while the government reviews its vetting procedures.

    And the justices said they “fully expect” the government to be able to conduct its review within the 90-day span the executive order proposes.

    That affects the ban on travel from the six countries and a 120-day ban on all refugees entering the United States, with the exceptions noted by the court.

    This is certainly an interesting development. President Trump gets his "victory" as the masses don't read the fine print. The Justices may have come up with an odd compromise for the short term and a defeat in the long term.

    My money is on Trump taking a victory lap, SCOTUS never sees it again, and the decision will be a force multiplier for similar actions with a much smoother roll out in the future. I think SCOTUS went 9-0 counting on it.

    It looks like the Trump administration and the Taliban found something they agree on: U.S. denies visas for Afghanistanís all-girl robotics team.

    From US will help people barred by first Trump travel ban to reapply for visas:

    Foreigners who were barred from entering the US during Donald Trump’s first attempt to ban travel from seven Muslim-majority nations will get government help reapplying for visas under a lawsuit settlement reached on Thursday.

    Civil rights lawyers and the Trump administration announced the deal during a conference call in federal court in Brooklyn, one scene of the legal battle over the treatment of hundreds of travelers who were processed at US airports over a chaotic weekend in January.

    Under the terms of the settlement, the government agreed to notify an unspecified number of people overseas who were banned that they can reapply for visas with the help of a Department of Justice (DoJ) liaison for a three-month period. In return, the plaintiffs said they would drop all their claims.

    “We are pleased with the settlement and that this chapter in the fight is done,” said American Civil Liberties Union attorney Lee Gerlent.

    Gerlent said it’s unclear how many people will benefit from the settlement because the government has refused to disclose the total.

    President Trump today on Twitter:

    The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!
    So much for those excuses about the travel ban targeting only certain countries that Obama targeted and being temporarily. We will see if this is just the President venting on Twitter as usual or a precursor to a new travel ban. In any case, this is fodder meant for the base that sees him negotiating with Democrats on immigration issues.
