Iran says US travel ban is 'racist' and 'unfair'

During his presidential campaign in 2016, Trump campaigned for "a total and complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States, arguing the measure is needed for national security.

Supreme Courtannounced that it would take on the case of whether or not President Donald Trump's travel ban, an executive order barring citizens from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the USA, during its next term, which starts in October.

On Monday, the court agreed to hear the appeal regarding the legality of the travel ban and allowed parts of the administration's emergency request to enforce executive order immediately while the legal battle continues.

The previous day, the Supreme Court allowed President Donald Trump to move ahead with a limited version of his ban on travelers from Iran, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Libya and Somalia.

The order was issued by the court on the last date of its current term and agreed to hear the oral arguments in its next term which will be held in October.

In agreeing to review two rulings by the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals and 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on President's Trump's March 6, 2017, Executive Order, the Supreme Court reinstated certain provisions of the Executive Order that the lower courts had blocked.

The spokesperson added that the U.S. was targeting the "wrong countries" with its travel ban, Reuters said. Students, faculty, and staff from the six affected countries who can establish the requisite relationship should expect long delays and extensive questioning upon entry, and the lack of precision in identifying those who will qualify for admission may result in confusion in some cases. In the meantime, exceptions will be made for people with "bona fide" connections to the U.S.

More than 500 evangelical leaders have spoken out against the executive order, but a Pew Research Center study earlier this year found that 76 percent of white evangelicals supported the ban.
