The test for prospective travelers under the Supreme Court's new decision is whether one has a "credible claim of bona fide relationship " with either an entity or person living in the United States - if you do, you can come to the U.S.; if you don't, you are banned for 90 days if you are from Libya, Syria, Iran, Somalia, Yemen and Sudan (and 120 days if you are a refugee).

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that Arkansas authorities must list the names of both same-sex parents on their child's birth certificate. They wanted the cake for the occasion. The Supreme Court's ruling should help resolve tension that's been brewing since the high court legalized same-sex marriage two years ago. "The Arkansas decision was an outlier in that regard and I'm very hopeful now that the U.S.
But under this law, when a child is born to someone in a same-sex marriage, the state does not automatically list the mother's spouse as a co-parent. In 2013, the Supreme Court in Lawrence v. It was also an outlier; every other state that had considered this question got it right and ruled in favor of treating LGBT families equally.

A lack of a clearly defined relationship would bar from entry people from the six countries and refugees with no such ties. "What is not clear is exactly who those people are, and that will certainly be the subjects of future lawsuits". But instead, his administration regrouped and issued a second order in March. "I continue to believe the system the United States had in place for vetting refugees from war-torn areas, prior to the travel ban, was extensive and thoughtful".

California lawmakers passed a measure past year that prohibits non-essential travel to states that enforce laws that are deemed to be discriminatory against the LGBT community.
