Looks like the U.S. Supreme Court is allowing most of Trump's Travel ban to stand.

But "Grandparents" can help get people in.

Trump wanted tighter restrictions on who could "help" people get travel visas.

Now let's see what's next !


Supreme Court justices uphold Pres. Trump’s refugee ban, but say grandparents still OK

The Supreme Court says the Trump administration can strictly enforce its ban on refugees, but is leaving in place a weakened travel ban that includes grandparents among relatives who can help visitors from six mostly Muslim countries get into the U.S.

The justices acted Wednesday, July 19th on the administration’s appeal of a federal judge’s ruling last week. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson ordered the government to allow in refugees formally working with a resettlement agency in the United States. Watson also vastly expanded the family relations that refugees and visitors can use to get into the country.

The high court blocked Watson’s order as it applies to refugees for now, but not the expanded list of relatives. The justices said the federal appeals court in San Francisco should now consider the appeal. It’s not clear how quickly that will happen.

So they left it up to the appeals court.

How exciting.

Grandparents make sense.

But what doesn't make sense is that Saudi Arabia isn't on the list. They produce terrorists like McD's produces chicken nuggets.

Oil has always been a Trump card...wow, see what I did there?
