The decision was a victory for the administration after its mixed success before the court over the summer, when justices considered and eventually dismissed disputes over the second version.

The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, will be holding arguments on the legality of the ban this week.

The Supreme Court order is a significant win for the Trump administration, which has fought all year to impose a travel ban against citizens of several Muslim-majority countries. Barring any other court decisions, this means that the #MuslimBan can go into ratification and the United States can deny or refuse entry to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, plus North Korea and Venezuela.

The Run-UpThe podcast that makes sense of the most delirious stretch of the 2016 campaign. Somalis will no longer be allowed to emigrate to the United States, but may visit with extra screening.

"As we have said many times in the past, Penn State fully supports all members of its academic community, regardless of their country of origin", said Nick Jones, University provost and executive vice president.

The orders gave no reasons for the court's shift.

The travel ban is the third version of a contentious policy that Trump first sought to implement a week after taking office in January.

They will be up for it and we will be up for it. "I had to find out quickly how to stop him". "Jesse is on fire now, Paul (Pogba ) as well, it's a pity he got a red card ".


Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the order "a substantial victory for the safety and security of the American people".

"The proclamation is lawful and essential to protecting our homeland". The ACLU is representing some opponents of the ban.

"From June 16, 2015 to this day, President Trump's immigration policies have always been about one thing: keeping Americans safe from people who seek to do us harm and attack our freedoms", he said.

"I'm still optimistic the courts are going to say yes, this is version 3.0, and they might have painted it a little fancier, but it's still the Muslim ban", Adams said.

Two federal judges had blocked latest version of the ban in October, but those rulings are now set aside. "He has repeatedly confirmed it, including just last week on Twitter", he said, referring to the President retweeting a series of anti-Muslim videos posted by a British nationalist.

Similarly, Judge Derrick K. Watson of the Federal District Court in Honolulu found that the September proclamation "suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor", adding that it "plainly discriminates based on nationality" in violation of federal law "and the founding principles of this nation". The court's order said the appeals courts should decide the cases "with appropriate dispatch". "This is just a temporary lifting of the injunction, so it still has to go through the appeals process". They agreed the ban could go into effect in part, but not against those who had close personal or professional ties to a person or an entity in the United States.

By contrast, civil libertarians and immigrants rights advocates portrayed the third travel order as more of the same: an unwarranted ban that targeted Muslims.
