Supreme Court Action on the Travel Ban

As you may have seen in the news, in a June 26, 2017 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court took action that will allow parts of the travel ban of section 2(c) of Executive Order 13780 to go in effect. The travel ban will not, however, be enforced against “foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."  The Court will hear oral arguments on this matter in the fall. Executive Order 13780, among other things, established a temporary bar on entry to the U.S. for certain individuals from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen. The University will monitor how this recent decision will impact members of our campus community.

OIA continues to monitor the situation and we will post updates on our Executive Orders Targeting Immigration website, as well as send out emails once more information becomes available. Additional travel guidance in light of the executive orders can be found on our website. As always, contact OIA if you have any concerns about upcoming travel plans or other immigration concerns.
