After the lower courts found the travel ban unconstitutionally biased against Muslims and contrary to federal immigration law, Trump hailed the Supreme Court's decision as a "clear victory for our national security". However, students who have not yet been admitted and faculty and staff who have not yet accepted a job offer may have hard time proving a bona fide relationship with an entity in the United States. Officials are still working to define what counts as a "bona fide relationship".
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said that the USA should stop adopting policies that empower terrorists, reminding the Trump administration that keeping Muslims out of the country will not make the US a "safer" place.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has denounced the U.S. Supreme Court's partial reinstatement of a travel ban affecting six predominately Muslim countries and said the decision could energize terrorist groups. The ban on refugees is also being allowed to take effect on a similar, limited basis. The Dulles Justice Coalition, which established a pool of volunteer attorneys at Dulles International Airport after the first travel ban, is planning to return to the Virginia airport outside Washington, said DJC board member Sirine Shebaya. The court said the administration can block travelers from Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iran and Yemen unless they can prove a "bona fide relationship" with a person or entity in the United States.

That order blocked citizens of seven countries-the six affected by the ruling, plus Iraq-from entering the United States for 90 days.
The administration has argued that the ban would not go into effect until court orders blocking each provision were lifted. The Supreme Court's action Monday partially reinstated the effort.
"The underlying issue of presidential power is too important and too likely to occur in the future", he said.
