The Supreme Court's decision to partially reinstate President Donald Trump's temporary travel ban has left the effort to keep some foreigners out of the United States in a murky middle ground, with unanswered questions and possibly more litigation ahead.In the meantime, the administration can bar travelers from six majority-Muslim countries from the U.S. if they don't have a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship" with someone or some entity in the country.Opponents reject that and argue it's a backdoor way to bar Muslims from entering the United States, as Trump promised in his campaign.Those groups are regarded as unable to show a substantial and pre-existing tie to a person or institution in the United States.Some immigration lawyers and advocates said relatively few people would fall under the ban because these travelers tend to have sufficient relationships with people or institutions in the United States.Refugees, legal U.S. residents and visa holders were turned back at airports or barred from boarding U.S.-bound planes.
