The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled to allow parts of President Donald Trump's travel ban to be enforced until the court can hear the full case in October.

According to the court's decision, Trump's ban cannot be enforced against foreign nationals who have "a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the U.S."  However, foreign nationals who come from one of the six banned Muslim majority countries – Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Iran – and do not have such a relationship (essentially a close family member) will now be subjected to the controversial travel ban.

The court's ruling also allows Trump's 120-day ban on all refugees entering the US to go into effect, as long as the refugees do not have "a bona fide relationship" with someone in the U.S.

Although the court will make a final ruling on the executive order in the fall, the decision is seen as a partial victory for the Trump administration, overturning lower court rulings that had blocked the executive order from moving forward.

Needless to say, many Muslims are really disappointed by the decision

Because it's "so absurd"

Truly "unfortunate"

And "appalling"

Comparisons to previous xenophobic Supreme Court decisions ...

But the fight will continue

Because despite the setback, the Muslim community's allies are many
