President Trump’s third attempt to impose restrictions on travel from predominantly Muslim nations will face a test in the Supreme Court this spring.
The Trump administration cut by more than half the funding it provides to the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, which funds schools and clinics for Palestinians.
Two groups argued that the policy prevented people from some mostly Muslim countries from reuniting with family living legally in the United States.
The changes have had far-reaching consequences, both for the immigrants who have sought to make a new home in this country and for America’s image in the world.
The decision was a victory for the administration after its mixed success before the court over the summer, when justices considered and later dismissed disputes over the second version.
A federal appeals court in San Francisco said a ban on entry from six countries could go into effect for people with no ties to the United States.
