The U.S. Supreme Court said Monday it would review President Trump’s travel ban to decide whether or not it is lawful.

The ban attempted to block new visas for those from six majority-Muslim countries for 90 days, as well as to suspend the United States’ refugee program for 120 days.

The court, which will hear the case in the fall, allowed President Trump to prohibit some people he deems dangerous from entering the United States but it imposed strict limits on who would be banned until a final ruling is issued.

“In practical terms, this means that” the travel ban “may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”

The Supreme Court will revisit two cases that were heard by federal courts in the states of Maryland and Hawaii. Both courts put the ban on hold nationwide.

The White House has maintained since the inception of the ban that it is necessary to protect national security. However, many people feel that the ban is unconstitutional because it singles out one religious group in particular.
