The United States Supreme Court has partially accepted Donald Trump’s travel ban for six Muslim majority nations: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan and Yemen

The Supreme Court has agreed to review the President Trump’s proposed travel ban this October and in the meantime has imposed a 90-day total travel ban and a 120 day halt to refugee resettlement from the six countries
