WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, the US Supreme Court said that it will hear the cases involving Trump's immigration executive order. The US Supreme Court also revealed that it had partially lifted the injunction against the travel ban instituted by lower courts.
"Today's unanimous Supreme Court decision is a clear victory for our national security," Trump said in a statement. "It allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries and the refugee suspension to become largely effective."
The implementation of the order was restricted by a US federal court on February 3. On March 6, Trump introduced a revised version of the temporary travel ban, but it too was blocked by a federal court ruling nine days later.
A US federal judge in Hawaii indefinitely extended on March 30 a court order blocking Trump's new travel ban.
On June 12, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ruling of a district judge in Hawaii.
