Taken from the briefing Trump Administration Travel Ban and Bona Fide Relationships: The Supreme Court Speaks recorded July, 2017 in New York.

On June 26, 2017, the Supreme Court’s 13 page per curiam order temporarily allowed portions of President Trump’s temporary travel ban to take effect on June 29. However, travelers with a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States" will be allowed to enter the U.S.
