When the Supreme Court reinstated substantially all of Trump’s Travel Order No. 2, the Supreme Court carved out an exception for people who have a “bona fide” relationship to the U.S. Such persons could not be subjected to a blanket, country-wide prohibition from entering the U.S. (emphasis added):
