    Grandparents now welcome under travel ban: Reuters

    Grandparents now welcome under travel ban: Reuters

    07/17/17 04:45 PM EDT



    Grandparents of U.S. residents from six predominantly Muslim countries included in the Trump administrationís travel ban will be allowed to obtain visas and enter the United States, according to a report by Reuters.

    The news agency viewed a State Department cable that indicates the administration will comply with a court ruling that found grandparents and other relatives should not be included in the ban.

    A Supreme Court decision earlier this summer allowed the Trump administration to move forward with its executive order, but said that people with close family relationships should be able to apply for a visa and enter the United States.

    The Trump administration, however, took a narrow scope of who could be considered as a close relative. It said grandparents did not count, nor did grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces and cousins.A Hawaii District Court judge said that such relatives of individuals living in the U.S. should be considered as close relatives.

    The State Department cable, dated July 14, reportedly states that "grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts and uncles, nephews and nieces, and cousins" are considered close family members and as a result can win visas.

    The Department of Justice, however, is pushing back on the Hawaii court's decision. It filed a motion last week asking the Supreme Court to clarify its June 26th ruling. DOJ said the district court's interpretation "empties the courtís decision of meaning, as it encompasses not just 'close' family members, but virtually all family members."

    The parties challenging the ban have until noon on Tuesday to respond to the government's request for the Supreme Court to clarify its ruling.

    You might as well lift the ban because they're all related somehow, one way or another by blood or marriage.

    And they all have FAKE documents saying they are related...this is complete BS!

    Trump promised to put them on Safe Zone on THEIR soil.

    Get it done and they can reunite there.

    Deport them all and stop bringing them here.
