Immigration Update:  Supreme Court Decision – Travel Ban

“Approximately 72 hours from the release of the decision, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials, consular officers, and others will be authorized to ban refugees and travelers from the six affected countries who cannot show a bona fide relationship with a U.S.-based family member or entity.

Refugees and people with immigrant and nonimmigrant visas will not be banned if they can show a bona fide relationship with a family member or entity in the United States. For individuals, a “close familial relationship” is required.

Travelers may not seek to establish a relationship with an entity solely for the purpose of evading the ban.”
