"It allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries and the refugee suspension to become largely effective", he said.

The Supreme Court ruled to reinstate part of the travel ban for individuals without a "bona fide relationship" with the USA, and this partial ban will go into effect on Wednesday, 72 hours after the issuance of the Court's ruling.

"We remain deeply troubled by the human consequences of the revised executive order on refugee admissions and the travel ban", Bishop Joe S. Vasquez of Austin, Texas, said in March.

"My number one responsibility as Commander in Chief is to keep the American people safe". The court, which tapering the scope of the lower court rulings that had completely congested his 6 March executive order, said it would hear arguments in the month of October.

The prominent global human rights group urged the US Congress on Monday to nullify the top court's ruling that allows Trump's executive order to take effect until it hears arguments on the travel ban in October.

The ban will come into force partially in the next 72 hours, based on a memorandum issued by the Trump Administration [VIDEO] on June 14.

Esther Brimmer, executive director and chief executive of NAFSA: Association of International Educators, said Monday evening in a written statement that international educators are pleased to be able to tell students and scholars with connections to the United States that, while the litigation continues, they could not be barred from the country because of nationality or religion.

Trump ordered the refugee ban and a travel ban affecting the six countries, plus Iraq, shortly after taking office in January. The court will also hear oral arguments on the case in the fall.

The March 6 motion called for a 90-day ban on passengers entering the United States from Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, and a 120-day ban on all refugees, using that time to allow the government to introduce more stringent checks on borders.

"This decision is a true compromise", said Kari Hong, an immigration law expert at Boston College Law School. However, I'm particularly concerned that banning people from the United States due to their country of origin sends a chilling message to all global students that we are not a welcoming place.

A prominent Iranian lawmaker has denounced the Supreme Court's partial reinstatement of President Donald Trump's travel ban, claiming that it's an "obvious breach" of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, including the United States.

The Fourth Circuit had held that the primary goal of the travel ban was religious, "was motivated principally by a desire to exclude Muslims from the United States, not by considerations relating to national security", and therefore violated the First Amendment. The plans were described by a senior official who was familiar with them, speaking on condition of anonymity because this person was not authorized to discuss them publicly by name.

The Fourth Circuit based its ruling on the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and had concluded that President Trump issued the second executive order because of his "desire to exclude Muslims from the United States". The new order also suspends the United States' refugee program for 120 days, and lowers the cap on refugees from 110,000 to 50,000 per year.
