On the stay in part: "We grant the Government's applications to stay the injunctions" blocking the implementation of the ban "to the extent the injunctions prevent enforcement of Section 2(c)" -- the provision suspending entry from six countries -- "with respect to foreign nationals who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States." - Amy Howe
The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date.
Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S.
That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as participation in an education program. Mr. Trump is also free to halt refugee admissions worldwide, with the same exception for people who already have a connection to the U.S.

Ahhh, the travel ban, the one trump wanted to put into affect 5 months ago. For those of you who think this is a good thing. The TEMPORARY travel ban if implemented back when trump wanted it to be originally would have already been lifted. The travel ban was supposed to be for 3 months, According to trump.
So, ask yourself this, this temporary ban would have already been lifted by now, if trump would have had his way months ago. What did the trump administration accomplish the past few months, with NO TRAVEL ban, that they would have accomplished with a travel ban??? ZERO. They have not accomplished anything, and a travel ban would have prevented ZERO terrorist attacks.
Also I love that 90 day ISIS plan that trump promised. He said he would shut them down in less than 90 days. How many times has ISIS struck since he took office??? Yeah, and its been over 90 days.

Agreed. The 90 days was supposed to be a review of and if necessary a revamp of our vetting process. There's no reason that any issues should not have been resolved since it's been well over 90 days.
