The decision reverses federal court rulings in Maryland and Hawaii that blocked the entire ban nationwide. The court's justices ruled that the ban will temporarily stay in place "with respect to foreign nationals who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."

The court's decision also permits the 120 day ban on refugees from entering the United States.
