Looks like Gorsuch and the minority on the Supreme Court were right when they stated Trump had the right to limit anyone, disagreeing with the majority who stated a more limited view.
Of course, the Supreme Court can overrule the 9th again like they do repeatedly, but the case won’t start until October when the court is back in session.
Until then, President Trump and his administration will have to let in an additional 24,000 refugees, at least, should he agree to enforce the 9th circuit court’s opinion:
President Trump’s travel ban suffered another legal setback Thursday after an appeals court ruled that the government’s restrictions were too tight, and ordered that many more people have to be admitted from majority-Muslim countries.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that extended family members including nieces, nephews and cousins of people already in the U.S. are considered “close” enough that they have to be exempted from the travel ban.
And the court ruled that any refugees who are working with non-profit resettlement agencies in the U.S. also have close enough ties, and must be admitted.
That covers a universe of about 24,000 refugees.
“Denying entry to these foreign nationals would burden persons in the United States,” the appeals court ruled, upholding a lower court judgment.
