Top US court asks Hawaii respond by Tuesday to Trump travel ban motion

Top US court asks Hawaii respond by Tuesday to Trump travel ban motionThe Supreme Court has given Hawaii until Tuesday to respond to the White House’s motion to block a ruling exempting grandparents of people living in the US from the president’s travel ban, the court’s public information office said Saturday. In a court filing Friday, the Donald Trump administration requested the nation’s highest bench overturn Thursday’s decision by a Hawaii federal judge, which limited the reach of the executive order temporarily barring refugees and other travelers from six predominantly Muslim countries. After months of legal wrangling over the controversial measure the Supreme Court handed Trump a partial victory in June, saying that the ban could go into effect but people with a “bona fide relationship” to a US person or entity were exempt.
