The Trump administration tried issuing new rules that are in direct contrast to the revised Muslim travel ban the Supreme Court reviewed earlier last month.

According to the Associated Press based on a State Department cable, Trump purposely defied and deceptively went around the SCOTUS ruling by now requiring a “close” family or business tie for the six mostly Muslim countries traveling into the United States.

He is making applicants prove a relationship with a parent, spouse, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling in the United States.

In addition to that, the Trump administration is stating that grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, brother-laws and sisters-in-law, fiancees and other extended family members are NOT close relationships.

Well, the Supreme Court just rejected that move by Trump and his administration. On Wednesday, they came out against Trump, and are telling government agencies it’s an unlawful order. They did this because that’s not what their previous unanimous opinion said Trump could do. Their ruling clearly stated said that the ban could not be imposed on anyone who had a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”

On Wednesday, they came out against Trump, and are telling government agencies it’s an unlawful order not to be applied. They did this because that’s not what their previous unanimous opinion said Trump could do. Their ruling clearly stated said that the ban could not be imposed on anyone who had a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”

“This confirms we were right to say that the Trump administration overreached in trying to unilaterally keep families apart from each other,” Hawaii Attorney General Douglas Chin said.

Hawaii-based U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson had previously harshly criticized Trump’s definition of close family relations, saying it was “the antithesis of common sense.”

Trump’s revised travel ban was implemented in early July, but the government will now have to comply with the Supreme Court’s latest intervention.
