"We grant the petitions for certiorari and grant the stay applications in part," the court order stated.
The US Supreme Court also revealed that it had partially lifted the injunction against the travel ban instituted by lower courts. The justices ruled that the Trump administration's order can be enforced for travelers from the targeted countries "who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States," until the court hears the case in October.
On January 25, Trump issued an executive order temporarily blocking nationals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States for 90 days, and suspending refugee admissions for 120 days.
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.
