The US Supreme Court has partially lifted an injunction against President Donald Trump’s travel ban.

An emergency request from the White House allowing part of a refugee ban to go into effect was also granted.

Justices at America’s highest court said they would consider in October whether Trump’s policy should be upheld or dismissed.

As reported by the BBC the Supreme Court said: “In practical terms, this means that [the executive order] may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.

“All other foreign nationals are subject to the provisions of [the executive order].”

The orders seek to impose a 90-day ban on people from six largely Muslim nations and a 120-day ban on refugees.

Lower court injunctions were also dismissed which barred enforcement of the ban against foreigners who have no connection to the United States at all.

The refugee 120-day ban would be allowed to bar entry to refugee claimants who do not have a “bona fide relationship” with an American individual or entity.
