US District Court Judge Loosens Temporary Travel Ban Restrictions

A federal judge is loosening some of the amendments in President Trump’s temporary travel ban.

The executive order stops people from six majority-Muslim countries from traveling to the United States.

The Supreme Court said parts of the order could go into effect last month and only allowed people to enter the country if they could prove a legitimate relationship to a person or business here.

The state of Hawaii fought back, saying the ruling excludes certain close family members, like grandparents.

Thursday night, a U.S. District Court judge issued a new ruling, which allows grandparents and other close relatives to enter the U.S.

If the Trump Administration wants to get that order lifted, they’ll have to take it to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
